they work, but for 100 extra bucks its not worth it, a simple hole in the intake tube would be fine. theres no reason for that.

well it is a nitrous kit, so depending on the jets u choose, zex makes a wet kit for the focus and the jets start at 55 shot. so about 50 hp or so, with the full set up with that filter u are looking at about 700 bucks

Just to clarify, this is for a DRY kit, as it is only injecting Nitrous, no fuel. I would recommend a wet kit for several reasons..
