I installed this mount on my 2012 SE 5-speed. It costs less than $50, took about 15 minutes to install, and it's worth every penny. The most noticeable difference is in the "grab" point in the clutch pedal travel. It used to be really vague, now you can definitely feel the point where the clutch begins to engage, which makes the car much easier to drive. There is some added vibration at idle, but I haven't noticed any while driving. I can't really comment on any differences in "wheel hop", as I'm past the age where I drive hard enough to notice things like that. But if anyone has doubts, don't. This is an inexpensive and easy upgrade.

I was just bidding on some MS3 springs on ebay only to have the seller cancel the item.
Damn it's obnoxious to find them. There's a set on their now and the person wants $200 for them haha.

This intake won't work without modification as it is intended for a port fuel injected application like on the older Duratec, and not for the direct gasoline fuel injectors used on the 2012+ Ford Focus.

I wouldn't recommend it personally.

I expect well see stuff like IMs/plenums available a few months after tuning hits. There's no point to one without that anyways.

Notice how the stock versions are not the same? I replaced my stock RMM today, and expected the 3 hole version. it only has one hole along the bottom. I'm not sure how much of a difference the electric focus mount made. It seems better, but maybe it's just a placebo.
Here's mine for comparison:

So it appears we have at least 2 revisions of stock, or maybe the sport package/trim level alters that?

Exclamation

The 2010+ MS3 rear sway bar needs added to this list. It is a 26mm solid bar. Use Prothane or Energy Suspension urethane bushings with "B" brackets. You can get either with or without grease fittings. Move the factory MS3 location collars inboard some to clear new bushings. Just tap them with a mallet and a screwdriver or punch. They will move with little force. They will stay in place, but you can put a hose clamp beside them if you are worried.

These bars can be had used for as little as $40. Look at online salvage sites or Mazda forums.

Of course the many available aftermarket MS3 bars will work too. Some are HUGE.
