cai or sri
 
i bought this focus one month ago and i first things first, id like to know the pros and cons of short rams intakes and cold air intakes. i know the differances and all, just want peoples advice and what they think of there intakes.

A great first mod. Sounds cool, looks cool, adds a little HP.

Short ram is less expensive. Cold air makes a tad more power. Long style intakes are a no-no up here in the midwest were inclement weather/snow might be sucked up in them due to their "close to the earth" design, but I'd say you'd be good out in AZ.

so far all i got is a cheap performance air filter just before the mass flow air senser if feels good, but will it make a difference all together

Unfortunately, AEM would have been my recommendation, but they have discontinued them to my knowledge. They are still on their site, but are not available.

I do have a MAC short ram on the shelf for $119.

SRI works great
 
I have a 2002 ZTW. Last month I installed an AEM SRI was floored. It sounds outstanding and the throttle increase is noticable! I had low idle issues from the start (would stall at lights unless I feathered the gas). I removed the EGR hose from the Intake Tube and directed it to the far left of the engine. I then capped the Intake tube opening. Problem solved - idles excellent now.

The Airaid/Roush looks to be the nicest in my opinion for the 2008 and up.
