|trackfodder||I gave up looking for an opportunity to post, so here it is. My grand daughter had a 2005 Focus that lost the alternator. The book says drop a motormount and pry the engine away from the firewall to get the alternator off a stud. I found the stud has a nice 1/4" hex and comes out with a ratchet to drop the alternator, saving lots of work. You're welcome Keith Williams|

that is the start of why taking OFF the stock part matters for performance (if you have a free flow aftermarket air filter) and yes it makes a difference IMO.

The snorkle delete is great. The ST part is only candy, but still nice. (and cheap: under $5)

|ChalupaJones||I FINALLY got myself the E RMM, I decided to go with something that would give a good improvement that wouldn't rattle my teeth out of my head. I wanted to because racecar but I don't have the funds to really get what I want anyway lol. Either way, I should be putting it on here in the next couple of weeks. Lucky for me I can use a lift at the auto hobby shop on base where I work. Price of the E RMM shipped was $62 and some change.|

I figure i can always do the E RMM when I do my next oil change.
I have to decide how to raise the car a bit more to do the E RMM.
I will probably get some 8" wide 2" (nominal) pine boards. double them up (nailed together) and angle cut the end so they are a pair of 5 footlong ramps run the front of the car up on those and all the way back, then stick my old homemade ramps up on top of the long ramps.. Run the car up on those. So four 2" (nominal) thick 8" wide pine boards holding the front end up. Should be plenty of room. (and more than stable enough)
My current ramps (of the same sort of wood, 8" wide. two 2" (nominal) bolted together made for my 99' Contour SVT to do oil changes are not tall enough.. (As they barely are tall enough to reach back and do the oil change on my SE.) Funny how my Focus SE is LOWER than my 99' Contour SVT was. (two together is good ... as if I overrun the lift, the car underside will NOT be stuck on the ramp. So I do not want to make one ramp which is taller.. And end up eventually with the car frame stuck resting on the ramp when I run up and over.. LOL.
So eventually i plan on doing this. I am not in any hurry about it.
Being old and lazy has some advantages... I can daydream about doing stuff for a long time. And then one day just do it.
I will report for certain when i get it done.. It may be a few months though...
I just stuck on the ST air velocity stack yesterday.. that was nice. and easy!
