There are no tunes available for our Foci just yet.
Are you experiencing heat soak with your K&N only after sitting still for a while? The reason I ask is that the intake temp reported by the Torque app show within 6-8 degrees above ambient as long as I'm moving, even at low speeds. It does get higher than that fairly quickly at a full stop, but lowers again fairly quickly after I get moving. I'm sure the effect is greater than that of the stock intake by a fairly big margin (especially at 100 degree temps), but unfortunately I never used the Torque app while I had the stock intake.
