Ractive intake system works great!

I just put on the Ractive intake system into my 2002 SE sedan. This intake system is nice qaulity and priced very reasonable. I looked all over ebay and many Focus part sites before I decided to go with the Ractive intake.

The system costs about $100. The pipe is chrome with black rubber parts and stainless steel hardware. I installed it in less than 30 minutes. The system comes with both the zetec and the SPI rubber connector which is awesome! For those who plan on upgrading the TB can do so at a later date while still being able to install it on your current SPI TB.

The performance was better than expected. The actual horse power gained may not be huge but the throttle response to my otherwise sluggish SPI was great! It really made a difference! The car actually sounds great too! I personally hate the loud sounds many "Rice burner" cars make. I was not looking for anything stupid sounding! This system sounds very nice! I feel like I am in a sportier car with the additional sound from the intake! (In reality it is all in my mind... the car is still slow overall!) This upgrade is worth every penny!

Looks great, sounds great and performs great too! I am happy with this intake system!

PS - My stock SPI / SE sedan will be undergoing many upgrades guys.... this was just the first of many! I also have TCY tail lights, clear grill lights in the front and clear bumper lights too! I have 20% tint all around which makes my silver SE look awesome! (I need rims and tires which are next on the list!)
