Steeda quality is always awesome IMHO, and they do work directly with Ford. No lie there.

For those who have done the "open-top" mod on the airbox, it's like that except muffled by at least 25% when you are driving normally. It sounds cleaner and it's basically as loud (and sounds very nice) at high RPMs.

I'm looking forward to hearing this with the stealth exhaust. Should sound fantastic!

What's this part all about?
"The incorporated heat shield also includes connectivity to take use of the factory RAM air intake system for increased cold air flow and power. "
Factory ram air?

I have a hard time with the set up on the Focus being called a "Ram Air" system.

Bare in mind with the Steeda you abandon two of the small diameter inlets.

yeah i agree that the stock system being called a ram air is stupid, but ford does, so it isn't steeda's fault. That being said I am building my own air box for the steeda and going to pipe in more air to fix their changes to the inlets.

That sounds promising... Audio clips from inside the cabin at different loads, etc?
