The Iceman is nice. Mostly because it isn't loud as hell. The best for the Focus seems to be the Volant. I also like the Focus-Central.

Go with the Iceman. Best bang for the buck and looks stock. Nice sleeper intake.

i'd just stick with volant... all the iceman does is replace your snorkels with cool colors and give you a less crappier panel filter. gains are about similar, better powerband with the volant and better torque with the iceman, or so i believe.

The Iceman also gives you the additional duct for bringing in cool air. It isnt just an assortment of different color tubes. The main snorkel is more direct and is smoother than the original. The intake tube issmoother and resists heat a little better. It is a nicer intake than stock, obviously, but it isn't just a couple of different color tubes.
