Theblueoval Add a nice, tame exhaust and it makes it even better.

Tigeo Last week I was taking a few guys to lunch at work and one of them commented that my car sounded good when I accelerated hard. This mod (K&N closed-end, snorkel delete, ST inlet add) really does increase the intake noise on this car to a nice, not obnoxious, level.

bama_focus After going over 30k miles with my k&n with the cap off of the end. Today I found the cap and installed it. I have to say it feels a lot more responsive with the cap on even though I like the sound of it when its off. Overall I think I am going to leave the cap on for a while longer to compare but for the past few days it has felt better on my butt dyno

Thanks, Mazdamike0831! Stay safe in the Big Storm of 2015 that's coming your way.

nyuk98gt Fellow Foci-philes:

After 119 pages, maybe this advice will be too little, too late or otherwise not useful. But here's a little disassembly tip that some may find helpful.

As for the snorkel delete, I just did it (oiled K&N/closed end filter) and it makes quite a nice seat-of-the-pants difference. Gas mileage seems to be trending up and the throttle response is now crisp. Good mod!

Disassembly tip:

The push-pins on the snorkel are the same as the those holding the shield to the horizontal panel across the radiator. This type of fastener can be turned to get access to the reliefs (one for the center pin and one for the outer expanding part). A little flat-blade screwdriver (or a fingernail, if you're very manly) can lift the inner pin enough to get a grip on it and pull it out (not all the way). Next, the outside plug (the one that expands) also has a relief in it and the plug can be turned to a good position to allow a small flat screwdriver to be use to pry it up a bit. Once it is away from the snorkel surface, it can be pulled out.

This method should prevent loss of these pushpin fasteners (if that's important) and the snorkel doesn't need to be roughly handled to pull it out due to stuck fasteners.

HTH,

Chris

mikesusz i can report that my throttle response has improved dramatically now that 1/3 of my air filter is not packed in fiberglass insulation. :D

edfocusse13 Done the snorkel delete couple days ago and it god rid of the cold start up vibration, put in the a green air drop in filter today and pulled out the resonator and the sound alone is enough to make you smile even without the better throttle response.

For sure man. I bought one of those little wall mount plastic drawer things for small items specifically for all the clips and stuff I kept taking off my vehicles haha
