That price is insane. You can get the FRPP upgraded inlet tube for a GT500 Mustang for under $70! (At least you used to be able to)

It is a nice piece and should be stock. Reminds me of the old days of putting the ST-170/SVT snorkel on the MKI Focus.

Anyone else notice that the car morphs from a Focus to a Fiesta half way through?

Yeah the ST doesn't have a snorkel like the N/A, just a short piece to seal off that hole.

That was my thought as well. Next time I am at the dealer for maint. I will see how much it is and order one if it isn't too much...can't hurt and again, I like a factory look to things...sven if it is hidden!

Every time you post in a thread my reading just comes to a screeching halt. Man that avatar is distracting (in a good way of course).

Is there any way to order just the snorkel piece without the filter? If you have a K&N filter already, it is kind of pointless to buy the same (or very similar) filter again, and just the plastic snorkel piece shouldn't cost too much (hopefully).

This x2. I would even attach it for the Typhoon or Steeda systems for the lulz. There should be a part number on it somewhere.

Many lulz to be had. In all honesty though, I really hope we can hunt down just the snorkel part number, nudge nudge Creative be our hero
