Question on Short Ram Intakes

Hi, i was just wondering if there is a short ram intake available for my 06 focus. I asked the dude at autozone and he said that there was no such thing because of the way the engine is. However, i wanted to check with you all before i called it quits.
Thanks

First off, Autozone is not a performance shop. Generally they are filled with idiots. Second, they are easy to install, the hardest part is pulling the old airbox out.

i'm sorry but which one do you have, and is it a cold air intake

once again, real sorry if i sound dumb but i'm a total noob to performance mods and thought a short ram intake would be a good place to start.
