Focus Central Strut Bar

I did a search but didnt really find anything. Will the Focus Central Strut Bar fit with a Volant Intake? Also will I notice a difference with my mods as far as performance goes?

no.. really only the front upper strut bar is for looks.

go with a rear upper strut.. you will be much happier!

i've noticed a little better handling, mostly in hard cornering. as it's said, it's mostly for looks, but it is functional

To answer your first question, yes it will fit with the Volant intake.. snug but it will fit.
