a few Q's on CAI

ive been thinking about getting one for a long time but i have a few questions that need to be answered:
1. does it really improve gas mileage?
2. will having a CAI have any effect on smog tests?
3. if i get a CAI will i still be able to use it with a turbo WAY later on? im really confused on how the piping works with turbos. im not sure what feeds what. all i know is i want one

thanks!!

1. possibly. if so, very minimally. but trust me, you'll want to open up the throttle more often, so probably not.
2. not at all.
3. should have no interference. turbo is all off the exhaust.

wrong, it will interfere with the turbo. True, turbos are run off the exhaust gas but there are 2 parts of a turbo. The exhaust gases spool up the turbo and the compressor side of it sucks in air and sends it to intake manifold. The only way you can have a cold air intake is if you somehow get the cai on the turbo compressor but then whats the point of that, it would be better just to get an intercooler.

read this, it has more info http://www.howstuffworks.com/turbo.htm
