K&N makes a non-metal intake for the focus. Sorry, just thought I'd add that.

The Ractive intake system works on all 2000 - 2004 zetec or SPI motors. The only difference is the rubber TB coupler for zetec or SPI TB size.

I am thinking about running a 2 1/2 inch flexible tube from the lower part of the bumper area to the mouth of the Ractive intake to force cooler air into the intake while driving. I will not couple them together. I will keep a small gap between the two so the intake can take local air at idle but cool air will be forced into the area of the intakes mouth during actual movement of the vehicle. Think of it as a CAI without the challenges of the CAI. The two issues I have seen are 1) A CAI tends to channel water into the TB since it is one solid pipe. 2) The CAI sometimes stalls a car during idle since some CAI pipe lengths are so long. That is what I have read anyway. Just an idea.

Thanks

I bought it from Eagle Distributors in Houston TX. They are also in New Orleans. They are a wholesale outfit that sells to the small to medium car audio and performance shops. Ractive makes just one intake for the Ford Focus. Look on ebay. They are there every now and then. The last one I saw was going for $65 shipped.
