Thanks for the original write up; if I did not see that I would have never known to attempt this :)

Nope, tried it. I am much better driving across. I could use CBI to have it shipped, but either way I will have to drive over the border.

I will definitely check out the post. I am however just looking for non-invasive mods for now as this is my "new" car and want to keep it as stockish as possible. Maybe in the future I will attempt some more tricky stuff :)

Thanks again!
This is where I got it locally in Calgary.

Thanks for the newmission links, I guess I will wait n see what kind of intakes are developed since I'm not sure I want to spend too much time cutting up my airbox for new mission. Although It does indeed look like a great intake for a focus. I just don't have that sorta free time these days. Guess I will look to getting an AEM when it comes time to replace my stock filter. However I'm a bit concerned about crushing the factory intake as I have read some people do. I'm assuming this is from clamping the filter too tight (or maybe just tight enough). Perhaps someone will manufacture some billet inserts so we can apply more clamping pressure? I run insert rings on my 250r ATV for just this problem. Granted on the 250r the air filter can bounce off if not tightened enough and if you over tighten you can get an air leak.

This is the link to see what I mean: but you will have to search for "Billet Air Box Ring".

Does that K&N allow you to keep the airbox lid on? Anyone had any issues with the MAF sensor getting messed up from over oiling? K&N + outerwear is nice, but also restrictive and expensive. I think id be better off going AEM and skipping the oil all together.

K&N fits right in, airbox top goes right back on as long as you get the part number from the link above.

So I'm considering drilling a series of holes in the bump in the plastic cover directly in front of the intake tube. I'm worried about water though. I hit it pretty hard with a hose just to see and some water got on that area. I was hitting it pretty direct though. I think I'll wait until it rains again then go for a highway drive and check it. Also, something has to be done about the tube that goes from the air box to the TB. I talked to a custom shop last week and we're looking at about $300+ for fab.
