Love'in it! Was averaging 28.5mpg, now It's a consistent 34.5. True story! I haven't taken any temp reading yet. Wanted to get everything finished first. Just received the Outerwears pre-filter and installed that a couple days ago. Noticed a lot of bugs stuck in the pleats, so I know there's good air flow. Again VERY happy with this mod, and came in at around $91 complete with K&N and Pre-filter.

It only voids the warranty if the dealer can prove that your modifications were the cause of the problem, and even then it only voids part of your warranty. The dealer could void your engine warranty with a device like this, but say your hatch broke, they'd still fix it.

Here is the pre-filter, if you were curious what one was or what it looked like. I HIGHLY recommend a pre-filter on any exposed filter element, or aftermarket filter to keep debris out of the pleats. A pre-filter also keeps splashes of water out.



Oh, and a little custom vinyl-age.

Unfortunately it has to be custom made. I worked with a saleswoman by the name of Rosemarie Dobbs from Outerwears.com. Her email is; Rosemarie@outerwears.com

Tell her you have a 2012 Focus with K&N filter, and was referred to her because she has the specs for it for a custom pre-filter. The product number they gave me is 100-3401 if that helps her. Or you can contact them to have one made different if you want to try one with an end cap or whatever.

They are great people, and a solid company with a quality product. I'm very happy with the investment. And they hook you up with a bunch of decals, if you're into that sort of thing. Love free swag!

The filter runs $20, the custom set up fee is $10. You can have as many as you want made at $20 after the initial set up fee. I ordered 2.

Finally a quick audio clip of the intake. Of course it is much more aggressive with a load out driving, but you get the idea. Not ricey at all, very clean and throaty low tone without drowning out the engine note.
