Few Questions

Hi All,

I posted these questions in the year specific forums and didn't get a ton of responses there. I think it was because I probably posted it in the wrong forum. :) I have a 2009 S with an auto.

Here is the condensed version (I tend to get a little long winded in my posts.)

1: Has anyone installed a bypass oil filter on the second gen focus? I've ordered on from Pareto due to the simplicity of the setup, but I'm having a hell of a time trying to figure out where it is going to fit. Would love to see some pictures of what everyone else has done. I'll post pictures of my install when done.

2: I'm looking for a drop in replacement non-oiled air filter. I've always used AEM products in the past, but it doesn't appear they make a filter for these cars. Does anyone know of a drop in replacement filter that doesn't use oil?

3: Has anyone installed a drain plug in their automatic transmission pans? I went looking for a replacement pan all over the place and couldn't find anything. I finally admitted defeat and ordered a new pan from the dealer, and I plan on welding in my own drain plug. Curious if there are any spots that work better than others due to solenoids or the filter?

That's about all the questions I have for now. I'm really fighting to keep this car as stock as possible.. This is supposed to be my daily driver commuter car! :)
