I just think the open end is more for noise (IMHO) - the stock air box set up is a CAI to start with so once you open the end up, you are defeating it sucking in air that is warmer from the engine bay. On the other hand, plenty of folks with open-end filters/CAIs (short ram really) with no issues. I can't believe I am recommending this....but....have you for shits and grins tried a tank of premium fuel?

Aftet market filters are a waste of time. The standard air filter on the focus is massive and can easily flow more air than our engines need. The filter works fine on the Focus RS MR340 pack and that is for the 2.5 turbo. There was an independant test on filters where the highest flowing air filter compared to the paper, only flowed 0.90% more air than paper. The key to more flow is how the intake tubes, inlet manifold and cylinder head is designed. I have tried different filters on my 1.6 Ecoboost and all have performed the same with no increase in power and that's with a remap. Plus the aftermarket filters don't filter out particles that are bigger than 10 microns and they are the ones that cause damage to engine and increase wear.

we have a different engine in the USA. It's a 2.0 N/A engine. no turbo. it responds very well to aftermarket filters. there are MANY dyno test proving this. 8-10 WHP by upgrading to a highflow filter.

a couple threads:

MK3 Dyno Thread

Snorkel Delete

2012+ Ti-VCT intake kit test! Results with dyno graphs inside!!

Even my ST saw an increase from an airaid filter and heat shield kit. I was the guinea pig for their kit and they said they definitely saw gains, stock tune.

Don't the high flow filters cause increased engine wear by allowing more particles into the intake?

yes but how much is debateable. I've had cars personaly and have friends who have cars with high flow filters go hundreds of thousands of miles.
