euro can u explain what the shield bolts up to and where it mounts and are u sure this wont affect performance? does the bypass filter affect performance by sucking air through the bypass filter or does it only suck it if the air filter is clogged ? thanks again.

intake

Hi this is my first post.

i have a question about short ram vs. CAI. My Focus is a sedan LX, so i have the SOHC engine, and as i have been lookin for intakes i can only find short ram intakes. I Do live in seattle Washington so short ram may be best, but on ebay all the CAI say for DOHC engines only. I was wondering why CAI wouldn't work for the SOHC engine? i looked at my friends SE model focus with the Dohc engine and the intake set up and engine bays look the same, does anyone know if i could put the CAI into my LX Focus?
-thanks
