Installed FSWerks Intake on my 2012, and Race Exhaust (Video)

Well I know it's nothing special but I haven't seen a video on youtube yet of this intake on the 2012's and I like to share with others here since this intake just came out and many 2012 owners are probably debating on buying one.

Well it went in in about 1.5 hours. Stock box was probably the bigger pain but came out actually pretty easy.

A tip to attaching the MAF to the intake shield is to tape the two long screws in so they don't slide out while trying to put the spacers and MAF on by yourself. If you had someone to help it would be easy but tape works. haha.

Here is the youtube video, my other videos of the exhaust alone are on my youtube channel as well.

Thanks for video! What do ya think about the "foam" filter style vs "K&N" (paper?) style on others? Filtration? Longevity? Flow? Etc. Thanks

I like how you attached the camera to the hood. Added to the effect.

I will straighten it. Haha I noticed that after making sure the clamps were perfect. Didn't have time to do it before work.

Ya I used a suction cup from my GPS to hold my phone for the video.

The price compared to the Steeda, even though it makes just a tiny bit less HP it's nearly half the price.

Also since I have the FSWerks exhaust and if I got the intake too from them, when they make a tune available it will be tuned for their own intake and exhaust not for someone elses and probably work together better.

Plus their reputation and history with the Focus.

the question i have about their design is that the air inlets from the outside are being partially blocked by the heat shield, which would make it seem like the air flow wouldnt be as good, but maybe there still is more than enough airflow for what the engine actually needs.

I noticed that as well. It seems that it still gets enough air as its not slowed or partially blocked by the original silencer and airbox. Even the small pieces that go from the air inlet to the stock intake don't fit back into place because of the shield. I know it would probably be easy to modify but maybe its a good thing too so that rain coming into the inlet doesn't spray straight onto the filter and get ingested.

Not sure if that makes sense. What do the other designs from Steeda and so on look like? Do they use the air inlets or no.
