Hey guys, I'll be asking about a special buy but it will have to wait until Monday. I can't make any promises other than I will ask, though I'm sure we can do something.

EDIT**You guys are fast!! LOL - our vendors like autoanything and amazon or ebay can offer compettitive pricing so check there as well. Just make sure to confirm the correct part number, it's exciting to get an intake... not so exciting if it's the wrong one.

As far as Steeda goes - Hi!! :) glad to see you guys on the forum!!

Troy.

Has anybody installed the K&N intake yet? I'm looking to increase my power, but I'm a bit concerned about the effects on MPG...that's one of the main reasons I bought a Focus. I've never installed an intake before...does it really change the sound of the engine that much? Any thoughts/advice?

The intake will not reduce gas mileage as long as you continue the same driving habits.

Probably either broken or fell off a truck...which is why I never bother with eBay.

I may spring for this kit, although I'm not sure how much it will help over what I've already done. I was very surprised at the difference I've seen by just installing a K&N filter, removing the resonator, and removing the air dam in front of the intake ports. If I 'launched' the car (auto gearbox, brake held firmly, giving it plenty of throttle holds rpms at 2800) before doing all this I could chirp the tires at best...now I'm getting wheel spin all through first gear. And that's with only some redneck mods and a new filter.

Oh, and I also opened up the spark plug gaps. Still stock plugs, I think I ended up at .055". Butt dyno says all that made a pretty decent difference...wish I could throw it on a real dyno and see.

I thought it was super cheap, so I jumped on it. I was wondering how he is making a profit myself. I have purchased an intake from this seller before and everything was great. I will report back with pictures when I get it.
