Simple. Pull out the stock intake box, unhook the MAF sensor. Install MAF sensor in new CAI (FSWerks or CFM), than install CAI per manufactures instructions. Pretty straight forward.

That stays exactly where it is. that is you drive-by-wire throttle body. You unhook the intake from the 2 hose clamps (one connected to the throttle body, the other at the intake).

The most straightforward intake to install is a short ram intake. Steeda makes a snazzy looking one that's not too expensive. http://focus.c-f-m.com/newitemfreesh...dfocus20l.aspx

Nope. Just needed to purchase a CAI. Everything needed will be included.
