the original FS does the same, bending up like that...only thing better is that the curve is better in the top than the stock carbon chamber

Thanks every one. and yes those are all spectre parts. I can hardly tell I have an intake on sound wise. Its a lot quieter than I figured it was going to be.
BTW I used the blue air filter, a 60 degree and a 90 degree bend probably cost 40 dollars

Thanks, Got all the stuff from Auto zone. I think the most annoying part was pulling the stock air filter out

Cool...what should I go in there looking for? I doubt the sales person will know what I am talking about when I go in asking about the "Ford Focus stealth intake kit"...LOL...

You said Spectre so...I imagine there is a shelf with Spectre stuff on it and the associated filter right? Was there a specific filter size or pipe diameter I should look for?

Thanks in advance for the help!
