There is no tuning available for the MK3 NA 2.0L Ti-VCT, only the EcoBoost ST.

These cars respond rather well already even to just intake/ exhaust modifications on the stock programming, but it would theoretically do much better if it could be custom road load tuned to maximize the performance safely, rather than risking the car running too lean or too rich.

Maybe on a mid compression port injected car... These high compression DI engines would really benefit from a dedicated 91/93 tune. Sure it still wont have turbo car gains, but It should be decent.

I just got my Focus Ti about 2 months ago.

I have never ever modded a car in my life (this is the first decent car I have had, and first new car I have had).

I have a couple of questions if you gents could offer me some advice.

Does adding a CAI void your warranty for anything?

If I have never modded anything (or never really worked on my car at all) will I have trouble installing this?

Maybe any other info/tips would be nice.

Thanks guys!

Nope, and it will not void your warranty. As for the install if you can handle a screw driver you will be able to install it just fine. Just take your time and read the instructions.

Really enjoying the forums here guys. Everyone is very helpful... except for that one guy who keeps talking about his 9,000 posts and is a troll.

So mine came today and I decided to throw it on. It took me about an hour and a half. I wish I could say it went smoothly but after getting the oem intake off and half way into the installation I realized Steeda failed to send me two of the four bolts that thread into the Maf housing tube! Sooo, now I'll have to wait to get new ones and then reinstall it all over again! I think they should also include some sort of glue to hold the rubber seal down. I ended up cutting it like several others have done. It definitely has the sti/boxer sound some have reported. The car seems to like it to as I'd say it increased 2-3mpg.
