foxhound720 Nevermind I got it on. Just running snorkel delete now. I noticed that my stock mpg isn't as advertised and I've been driving like a grandma lately.

foxhound720 The issue in having is getting the plastic / rubber seal shroud back on correctly so it doesn't hit my radiator shutters haha. I cant get my fat hands in there well enough.

I did the exact same thing last week (snorkel delete and AEM dryflow a/f) and I feel the difference at midrange....but more importantly, it's helped low speed drivability...easier take-offs (not bogging) when letting out the clutch on my 5 spd. M/T 2014 Focus. I see no negatives in these 2 mods.

That's what happend when I had my Rabbit. Installed and intake and exhaust and proceeded to drive like an a$$hole and the mpg's suffered.

But it was fun!

So far, this forum has been great.
Theres nothing to it, thats why there is 200pages... not trying to be rude tho... it sounds like a simple thing but I started with the snorkel delete mode, it woke car up, dct was shifting better, car was peppier..I noticed a difference right away, and Ive been improving the car ever since... motor mounts got rid of the engine slop..flopping around like a salmon under the hood, you will feel it.

sailor Oh yeah, chatter can go on forever even if the proof was in the orig. post.

braol - you haven't seen the "Oil Change 101" thread yet.

A simple how to on changing oil including info. on jack points and under tray removal ended up as an "Oil Thread" debating anything that might be considered.

One change from the initial info., deleting the snorkel alone is all that's needed (plus the aftermarket filter of course) - optional discussion on other air flaps doesn't apply.
