in terms of power you probably wont notice a difference. it would only be worth it for looks really. you will hear it a little more over the closed end K&N but that's about the only difference.

just go to Ford Focus Parts & Performance - Steeda Autosports - Free Shipping! and go to the 12-16 section. they have two versions of their intake for sale. one with a heat shield and one without.

I like my K&N typhoon

The throaty roar definitely worth the extra cost

Well whats unfortunate is that my exhaust is literally so loud, I cant hear my engine, seriously I can not, and I don't want to pay good money just to get resonators put back on, so in this sense its kind of a lose lose situation
