Is it a NOTICEABLE diffrence?

Was wondering if the Focii owners out there with CAI (steeda especially) who also have a free flowing catback on like the magnaflow system if the horsepower change is very noticeable, throttle response, 0-60, acceleration ect.

I'm sure there is a noticeable difference, because of the restriction, so there will most likely be a difference

I have a Steeda CAI and the Magnaflow exhaust, there is a noticeable difference in acceleration. It's most noticeable when the engine kicks down on the freeway for a pass, but the launch acceleration feels more zippy. It by no means made the Focus a sports car, but it did wake it up a little bit.

My MPG's remained about the same too, although some people have been getting higher numbers. I average around 34mpg with mixed driving on some pretty beefy summer tires.

I think there are some dyno sheets around here somewhere from others, but IIRC a CAI and Catback netted about 15whp, or around 10% gain in power. Your Butt dyno will approve

I also have a weapon-r secret weapon CAI, and the throttle response is better, dont really notice the hp change though. Might I add it has a nice low growl to it now :)
