Torque is lower too, right when you need it the most, off the line between 2500 and 3000 RPM.

I always try to redline it when I pull away from the stoplights. I love hearing the screams coming from the engine bay on my I4.

I just explained it. Twice. You've added air that your engine doesn't need and that the ECM can't compensate for, so you're running leaner than you should and leaner than can be compensated for. So you're seeing better mileage at the cost of power. It probably isn't lean enough to hurt anything.

Without a controlled test you can't isolate the intake as the cause of your improved mileage, but if you want to "credit" the intake, what I've described is the only way possible.

Fair enough, I run heavier than stock tires, weigh more, yet i'm getting better mileage than when I was stock, so something is at play.

BTW, if you're not hand-calculating your mileage (or using an app like Fuelly), you don't have a good picture of what your mileage is. Using the dash display is like playing darts in the dark. My Fuelly mileage has been both over and under what's displayed, and there's no consistent difference in the gauge and the actual mileage.
