No exhaust yet. Just bought the Focus used a couple of weeks ago. Exhaust is next. I'm torn between the FSW Stealth and the Magnaflow 15072. Haven't decided yet which to go with.

Thanks. This is actually my third Focus but the first one I decided to modify. I have a '05 Mustang GT that I've modified to the hilt so I needed a new toy. :P Anyway, how did you exhaust install go? Are you happy with the sound and performance?

My exhaust will arrive next week and maybe I'll install it next Friday, I let you know what the sound will be. How was your intake? Do you like the sound of it?

Nice growl. It can get decently loud under hard acceleration or when the RPM's are low but under load. I personally like it.

I ended up buying an extra intake tube that runs from the radiator support frame to bottom side of the intake. Once it's in the steeda they're nearly impossible to get out since the tabs are hardened plastic. Oem tube is only $12 and makes swapping between factory intake and steeda a breeze for warranty repairs. I spent 30 minutes trying to remove it out of the steeda to get it back into the stocker.

Anyone knows how to avoid this passing thru the intake?

could it be that everyone is just psychologically experiencing "gains" from a cai? Mighty car mods posted a video showing and proving that cai is a waste of time and rubbish over stock parts... Not hating on anyone here. Just asking. Anyone actually dyno tested this to see the results? I'm sure someone will tell me though to go read through the dyno threads.

Unless the dyno is being played with, it's hard to argue with numbers. Look at the manufacturer provided dynos, or see this thread: http://forums.focaljet.com/ti-vct-tu...hs-inside.html
For a huge grouping of dynos.
I think i saw that youtube video, where they tested it out on a single car. Hardly conclusive, and using no name cai doesn't mean anything. Some cars respond well to it, and in others the air intake isn't the bottleneck. In ours clearly it is acting as a bottleneck.
