LOL !!

WRONG !

This is what you always hear. Wanna know what REALLY happens ???

What REALLY happens is Ford says NO ... PERIOD. Now it's up to YOU to prove it had no effect. So now you gotta get a lawyer, expert witnesses .... blah blah blah ....

Is it really worth it to make a perfectly good car sound a little different ?

3 years later ... your car isn't fixed ... but what REALLY happens is YOU give up .... usually after ONE trip to the lawyer ... because Ford can very easily outwait YOU, and THEY have lawyers on the payroll sitting there doing nothing ... and it's not THEIR car that has a problem ... It's YOUR car. AND .... YOU'RE paying $175 an hour. Let me know how that works out for all you internet lawyers.


For some it may be worth it ... hey ... go for it. :D

Ugh, besides all the unnecessary caps and emphases, I don't like the sound of that.

Just wait till your out of the 36k bumper to bumper if you're worried. If you go for it and something awful goes wrong then put a new stock airbox in for $130 and play dumb. Just like breaking a phone ;)

I have a completely stock airbox(the one that Ford put into my car) sitting in my garage. My newmission airbox is from a different Focus. It was an $80(used) insurance policy.

It is my understanding that the deals just present themselves to you

That last one, maybe I had a little help And when you get rid of your springs....

The already newmissioned airbox was just sitting in a BST thread for 2 months before I picked it up.

It depends on what the issue is, if you do this and have a problem with MFT, they are going to cover it, but if you end up with engine failure probably not.
