|sailor||How much real gap is left with the hold down strap in place is a question, some think sealing it better was a help in low speed driving.|

Wow, seriously? I can't believe how much gap there is. I need to cover it up with a duck tape.

|Paddler54||I've noticed my 15 also has the uneven throttle response from a stop. So I checked under the hood and expected to see Ford had re-engineered the cold air intake connection....wasn't the case. So I checked my wife's 14 Escape with the 2.0L turbo...same setup (but the turbo and inter-cooler probably negate the issue). Guess I'll get the old electricians tape out and see if it corrects my 5 speed throttle issues. If it works then I'll tape up the wife's car just for grins.|

Just checked and looks like I have a pretty serious gap. Just patched it up with some electrical tape, we'll see how it goes!
Been having issues with throttle response coming from a full stop so hope this helps.

|sailor||8 ponies at WOT isn't a large percentage improvement, but as a real WHP gain it's significant. (would be a larger number if figured at the engine)|

|thelongone13||The ol butt dyno couldn't tell. Then again, I already have the snorkel deleted anyway, so I doubt it matters at this point.|

Still draws air from the outside as opposed to under the hood.
Combined effect from reduced restriction in two places, removing the snorkel & replacing the air filter with a less restrictive one.
Warmer air reduces power, less dense so lower oxygen & less fuel to match.
