ok if you want just the sound of an intake take out that resignator out of your stock air box, sounds almost ezactly the same as an aftermarket intake. Also don't get a AEM Cold air, 3 of my friends have lost the engines due to water coming up the tube, one even had a Bypass valve. Get a a volant if your gonna get one or a short ram. If you want Colder air coming in Get a european grill and european Snokel Extension for the regular snokel. You will get tons of cold air. Take strait cold air from your front grill.

good advice for the most part. i dont really think the resonator removal sounds too great though. not a huge difference like an intake. tell ur friends or anyone u know with the aem long tube to go to www.myfordperformance.com ray over there manufactured a weather shield that will block basically any water from getting to the filter without hindering performance.

volant is a great intake btw! love mine

i understand that the volant seals to the ram air hood but what if u have a stock hood ? is there just a big hole on top of the air box?? how does the volant work with a stock hood or does the volant have a lid that goes on? thanks

I think that the hole in the Volant airbox has a rubber surround on it. That way when the stock hood closes, the airbox seals to the hood. Not positive though...

euro zx3 i have read alot of your posts mabye you can help me???? what is best intake for svtf??
i did a search and didnt find alot of answers pertaining to the svt's, they make so many intakes for the regluar focuses but not for the svt's i know k&n aem and steeda make short rams, but from what i read on this site is that short rams dont give much power and little to no torque, and when its hot the dont give power cuse of the hot air. then there is the aem cold air intake, good power but a chance of sucking in water, when does it suck in water on the highway at 65 of if u splash through a puddle? does the air bypass valve help to prevent this? what if you put the k&n filter bag over the filter? how many people still run the aem cold air with out problems? where does the filter hang in front of the tire? up in the fenderwell? how does it get so wet? im sure this has been asked before but i cant find a answer so id like to know please thanks alot guys.

the filter in the long tube is just blatently exposed. it is the best power making intake for the svt though. id get it, but go to www.myfordperformance.com and pick up the weather shield you will be fine! id get the one without the scoop. the shield wont hinder performance but will keep ur filter dry! that + the bypass valve just in case and you will be fine.
