Moved to Duratec Performance Chat. Ford Focus Technical Chat is for discussions pertaining to maintenance, recalls, and vehicle repairs. This is the proper forum for discussions about performance modification to your engine.

I have one of those K&N's, and I have problems with lean codes. I think it might be related to something else, so we'll see what happens when I do some other maintenance I'm overlooking.

Thank you,

Most people are afraid of heat soak because of the way its positioned . But I've never had any problems out of it and I've had it on a couple of months after I bought the car.

I understand heat soak. same on out mustangs. Car engine bays are much cooler now than long ago.lol. My 91 saleen got around 110/120 after sitting for 45min. so driving i know cooler do to air flow. If it is a factor then all a person would have to do is add 6/8 more iches to put filter in fender. It would be up high, right behind light. Not down low like mine. I know mine picks up hot air from the road way. Closer to road more heat to get. I learn that with the pony to.

Posted via FF Mobile I went to K&N's website then filled out the make,model and year and it gave that Typhoon intake and I think 1 other option for the intake that fits close to the ground.
