Recently bought a 2012 sel. When I opened the hood I discovered that the car already had a k&n drop-in filter, newmission mod and snorkel delete. I am having a hard time figuring out if the shroud has been removed. I don't see where it looks like anything has been cut? Can you tell if the shroud is removed or is it in this picture?

I copied and pasted the link and yes it looks like it's gone... just a thin piece of rubber that would be on top of that... not that it's anything to worry about removing, I literally see no point in removing it although I did cut the flap straight across the intake opening, I wish I never bothered.

I always saw something about snorkel delete on here and I never really gave it a chance or a read because I thought it would be too much cutting and I just never gave it a chance. But I did it today and for the 10 minutes I took doing it, I am liking the extra boost its giving me just as much as my steeda CAI. Actually I feel the snorkel finally let that sucker breathe and my goodness the difference was amazing. Was not expecting that much from this mod but definitely worth it and so so so so easy to do.

Wow. That's unbelievable. I never got to drive the car with snorkel to compare but I am impressed with how these cars run and get 31 mpg.

Hey I am new to the forum, I just purchased a 2014 Focus 3 weeks ago.... I was wondering what benefits this modification provides?

Thanks!

The very first post of this thread says what benefits you should expect. The 99 pages is just further evidence of the popularity of this mod.

maybe dyn085 needs to update the first post again with a TL;DR - aftermarket filter + snorkel delete = dyno-proven power add.
