06focuskid I have had a FS CAI for years and I love it, I have some vibration but its only a little at start and the noise only occurs when you step on it. The sound is half the reason for having a CAI.

cbr1100xx Already took the intake off and sold it. even if the vibes at high rpms vanished completely, I still would have sold it. Just too loud for me...I like quiet....and it just had too much drone for me.

I'm back to stock and would never go back.

Drumr90 They should replace mounts with no probelm even with intake.

Even though the car has only 22K miles on it? I know one mount went bad on my last Focus ('09 auto w/about 32K mi) but it mostly just vibrated at idle.

I'll have my guy check the motor mounts too. If the mounts are bad and I take it to the dealer (still under warranty)....you think they will replace them seeing I have the CAI?

I would still check them and then I would disassemble the intake, inspect it and re-install it. Not really sure what else it could be.

Sorry about being a smart ass before and I hope I've helped you.

DO NOT go back to the shop that tried to tell you a new filter would make the noise go away. It almost sounds as if they did something to cause a noise so that you would come back for more service to purchase that new filter then just remove what ever is causing the noise... Some places are just that shady
Thanks for the info. I would agree with you on the shop except I've used this guy before and he's EXTREMELY honest and well respected by just about everyone around here. He put an intake on my Lancer in the past...worked flawless. He's the only person many people will allow to touch their EVO's or AMG Benzes. He's not a BS'er by any means.

I think his suggestion about the filter was just an honest mistake in thinking on his part. But I can tell you, he's not shady at all. He'll look at everything again. In fact if I print out what you think the problem is, he'll gladly accept it and try and fix it as he told me he's totally open to whatever ideas I find ont he forum. If he sees nothing wrong, then I will take it to another shop.

Thanks again.
