Nice little write up man. Just went out and did this.

I have the Steeda CAI so I can't comment on how the stock airbox sounded with it but strangely this did seem to clean up the sound for the Steeda unit. Could be in my head though.

Interesting hose idea. Definitely a bit easier than newmission's. Although if you aren't planning to add that to the bottom of the airbox I'll be extra interested in what your plans are.

Added to the bottom of my air box. For the opening in the side grill, I just cut it n half and left a nice opening into the inlet. I can also use the piece I took out to block it off again if some weird need to do so arises.

Sounds about the same as my original mod. ONLY has more sound at WOT, and still it does not overpower anything or sound ricey.

Feels good too.

I used the whole kit. Not sure h far I truly expands to, but looking at what I used I would say maybe 24" is all you would need max. But like I said, I didn't measure since wha I used is expandable and compressable.

The two factory inlets with an opened up grill area and no retrictive snorkel and from the bottom of the air box to the side grill area.

So, the air box has 3 inlets.

Now it is time for exhaust.

I am taking the Mustang to Mustang Week this year. I could dyno the Focus then.

ok, ill try and measure as well, but 24" would be a good length for me to try and do a 1 foot straight pipe and a 45 degree angle bent pipe.
