|benoit230||So I was looking at getting a cai and this is the only thing I am finding - http://www.knfilters.com/search/prod...rod=69-3513TTK K&N says it's a cold air intake but I found other sites calling it a short ram intake, should I take K&N's word?|

Just putting up a little review... I bought CFM's kit, which I am 90% sure is virtually identical to FSWerk's. I went with the CFM because I live on the East Coast and shipping was cheaper than FSWerk's. Installation as just alright; instructions applied more to the 1st gen Focus and was vague on where to put the hoses and what parts I needed to get them to fit. Otherwise, it sounds better anyway. No real difference in power though throttle response is a bit quicker. MPGs are up about 1 mile consistently and my instant MPG graph regularly shows an extra bar compared to before the kit.
I would not worry about hydrolock. If you're really concerned like me you can just put an Outerwear prefilter on it, which is probably a good idea anyway as it will absorb some dust and hopefully increase the recharge intervals for the filter itself. Otherwise, the bottom cover isolates it will from water, and if you're really concerned there is enough wiggle room that you can angle the lower pipe with the filter more towards the front of the car, further away from the end of the lower cover.

|alogical||looking for a CAI for my 09 5-speed SE. I see that CAI's are vulnerable to hydrolock. Does anyone with the same year have a CAI? I am curious as to what I should get. I am looking at the FSWerks Green Cool-Flo for the Duratec 2.0, which is obviously what I have. Trying to get a more in-depth pros vs cons before I go out and buy something.|

My Focus 14 SE
Does anyone know if a 2012-13 Cold air intake will work on a 14 Ford focus SE 2.0? Can't find anything and no one that ive talked to knows.

When I did get under the car to change out the horn, I also noticed the entire splash shield is missing as well, so I will be going to the dealer tomorrow to order that and get it installed.

I'm running a spyder cai and didn't know I had to cut it myself to size, so its 4 inches longer and barely fits above the splash guard. My car is lowered by 2 inches also. When it rains I just put a nylon over the air filter and it keeps the water out. Just get a knee high nylon from wal mart for 33 cents a put it over the filter to make it water proof. If you aren't sure, just go get a nylon from some chick and try to pour water through it.
On my G-Nex about my 05 ZX4 st

Just something to add to the thread...
2005 ZX4, 2.0 Duratec. 162,000 miles.
Bought the car about a year ago with 150,000 on the clock and when under the car changing out the horn, I saw the factory airbox was suspended by two bungi cords!
I had already discovered the function gauge was missing and covered over with vinyl tape!
I needed to replace that box and went with a Steeda short ram intake. It installed very easy, (never even needed to unbolt the factory box, just yanked it out) and I won't have to worry about hydro-locking, (like a CAI) and its pretty close to as maintenance free as was the factory box.
I have noticed a bit more kick and the induction noise is palpable and enjoyable. I would highly recommend the Steeda short ram to replace a problematic or worn out factory box.
