I just installed one and dynoed it on a Turbocharged Focus SVT
It did hold slightly better in the top end and kept pulling to 7600 and was still going
There was no loss of HP or TQ over the stock SVT intake manifold , no gains till about 52-5500
Looks good on the car
Had to spend over 4 Hrs of work to the manifold before I could bolt it all together , The weld on the top of the manifold held the ts adaptor off the manifold slightly and would of had a Vac leak , this must be a known issue because the adaptor was beveled to mis this issue
The bracket that holds the throttle cable would not allow the cruise cable to hook up , the hole was in the bracket for it but the slot was not long enough so had to reslot the bracket
Doesnt need 4 Vac ports
The #4 runner didnt line up well with the SVT inner half of the SVT adaptor needed to use this intake it was off by about 5/16 of an inch , they did all the runners straight and only 1 runner is straight on the stock inner half of the SVT adaptor needed
I didnt like how the TB part of the manifold points down and you have to do a sharp turn right at the TB to mis the Coil bracket and Batt , this could be raised with the adaptor or when building the manifold
All in all I do feel all these issues could be addressed very easy and these problems will be gone
This wasnt to start a pissing contect with ts if they want to talk about the issues and ideas how to correct them its up to them
