I hope you guys arent mad for betraying the Focus but I was unimpressed to say the least with the ST I had on order.

True, but just the snorkel. I dyno'd with and without the OEM filter/K&N drop-in and with/without snorkel, and hp/tq gains are only seen with both the drop-in and the delete combined. I still have to suck air through the intake runners, which is essentially about 1x3" cumulative surface area.

This is why I am sure that the AEM must be getting more. There are no runners to have to deal with (or even a box, for that matter). Obviously, without back to back graphs by a trusted member I will still have an amount of skepticism, but If I can get those numbers on the stock intake runners...

I'm more inclined to believe that the AEM is getting more than 4hp, but that AEM erred on the side of caution in the publication of their numbers.
thats with the delete though ;)
