AKToronto Curious for the Toronto driver, which FS Works CAI did you use, and why did you use it over say, a K&N CAI? Did it have better compatability when paired with this mod? Also, how would you rate the noise levels? I imagine it will be louder, but by roughly how much? Also how would you rate the sound quality, if its noiser, is it a good balance still like the OP in this thread stated when he did his mod?

stuff1138 AKToronto just go to your dealer and ask them to order part CV6Z-9A624-B. You can try but I'm not sure if it works in Canada

EDIT: It cost me $3.84 and it isn't required for the snorkel delete, but I figured I'd do it for less than $4 why not right?

AKToronto Where or how is the easiest way to order a ST velocity stack inlet? Any quick links for a cannuck? Just out of curiousity.

I guess its an interesting debate now... Do this mod or just do a snorkel delete plus ST inlet, and for both, get the drop in filter, etc. Hmmmm....

Hugh587 Used this mod all last winter in Toronto, with a FSWerks CAI. No snow problems.

sailor This looked like a good option, but didn't pan out quite as well as expected.

Snorkle delete/drop in filter is the much easier mod. that seems to work better.

You can fancy that one up by using the ST inlet to replace the snorkle if you want.

Read up all you want on the options, that one should be better for your situation.

AKToronto Don't like the sound of the snorkel delete only too much...

Bogey Just do the snorkel delete and the k&n filter, then you have no worries ;)

AKToronto This looks like an awesome mod for my 2014 focus... but as a cannuck I have to be mindful of heavy winter snow.... I will probably have to drive in some pretty stormy conditions this winter. If I put on a pre filter as recommended, will I be ok for snow too? Anyone have any experience or advice on this point?
