Since it's only talking about the air intake snorkel and ducting into the airbox possibly not being sealed properly yes it would apply potentially to every 2.0 L GDI Ti-VCT engine.



On the right hand side of this picture just in front of the air box is the aforementioned ducts and rubber strap

Thanks for posting the picture, suss. I'll figure out how to do that on my own some day.

Intake

I just purchased a new 2013 Titanium, loaded with sport package, from previous experience with this car I find you have to drive them like a sporty hatchback and they're good. But concerning this issue.

I had a 03 Protege5 and it lurched and bucked, drove me nuts, thought it was the clutch. I put my hand on the intake tube and realized that it had a hole in it, I sealed it up and the issue was fixed. Put a CAI in it and it was perfect. The intake needs to have a seal to work properly. Really a CAI would be best. But are CAI allowed under factory warranty? Or even just a short ram intake.

bingo, don't drive it like a granny. And a loud car makes ppl get out of the way..

I get 31 in the city, 44 on the HWY. Your driving a MTX controlled by the ECU, either drive a MTX or correlate with a MTX and lay into the throttle a bit.

I asked ford about this and they said any aftermarket CAI other than a FORD CAI would in fact void the warranty. I'd assume it's the same deal with a SRI.

Funny enough, my friend was having problems with his throttle response and i checked the strap first. It wasn't sealed hardly at all.. I told him to just take it into Ford. (Not the type to mod their 2013 car)

That's blatantly false. Unless they can prove the installation of the CAI caused the car to throw a code they are required under the emissions warranty mandated by the EPA to repair anything that will make the car not meet the emissions standards.

This makes much more sense to me also, I was just stating what Ford told me.
