What I just did with my 2001 Zetec Focus a couple weeks ago was get rid of the snorkel (I had already taken off the resonator a long time ago), so the intake gets its air right at the bottom of the airbox, which might actually get some "cold" air coming up from behind the bumper. I've liked the results so far. Less annoying intake noise, more good intake noise. It feels much less restrictive too, and the throttle response is so much better. I think my mpg even saw a slight increase. :) It's nice and quiet when you don't want to make noise, but when you step on it, it's like dubstep coming from your engine. A very bassy, burly sound. This is a great free mod in my opinion.
