Default CAI on a 98 2.2L Legacy Wagon?

I just got behind the wheel of a '98 2.2L Legacy L Wagon...
It's currently got well over 200k miles and I use it as a commuter to and from work which is an hour each way. It's bone stock.

Would a short ram or cold air intake improve my gas mileage or throttle response? or would it simply do more bad then good?

To be honest...idk, i have a full ram intake..the cone is right behind the fod light cover..it gets good fresh cool air at all times. I went from a short ram with the cone in the engine bay to the full ram and i will sware by having seen a difference.. and i also get 31 mpg. I have about 270k on the engine..rings are worn out, and i have a flowmaster muffler and a light weight flywheel as well. Before the full ram and before the lightweight flywheel, i drove the car to wysconsin and i got about 27ish mpg, so yeah i got a little better gas mileage.. and i had better throttle response when the rings were a little healthier...

Amazing what a lightened flywheel will do for you in terms of performance and even fuel economy

I got a ram intake off of eBay for 30 bucks and I made my own heat shield out of aluminum. I feel some extra power and I got about 1-2 mpg gain
