the scoop is designed for the old FC box intake (or the newer Volant intake) as it would put air right into the box...though any shortram would put the filter right in front of the scoop.

any other location would be non functional for its original intended purpose (getting cold air to the intake)

god no.

the 05-07 Foci have the airbox in a completely different location so the scoop wouldnt function at all. it would hvae to be relocated to the front of the hood, which would look retarded (and the 05-07 foci already look retarded enough... )
9 Foci. and a rebadged mK II Focus ST (Volvo C30)

Yes, I have issues.

Next question.
