SPI cold air intake

I am looking for a cold air intake for my 2000 focus with the SPI 2.0. Can anyone recommend a good brand. I was gong to get a K&N but I don't think they make one for the SPI.

Hey its another Intake question,

Just kidding I am glad to help, I have an AEM I love it another favorite on this site is the volant, eitherway no matter what you will have to get a new throttlebody (60mm) try www.focus-central.com. The reason for the new TB is that most good intakes are made for Ztech the spi TB is too small and no you cant take a Ztech TB off and put it on yours it will not fit, other than that any Ztech intake will fit our cars.Also if you do get a CAI DO NOT forget a bypass valve, if your filter sucks in water you will be srewed out of an engine. If I left anything out I am sure it will be added later.

Looks like you hit just about every thing focusin. He could also try myfordperformance.com for the t/b. If you deside to go with a cold air intake you will most deffinantly need a blowoff valve so that way you wont hydrolock the motor. Now I personally have the volant intake. The volant intake doesn't necessarily need the BOV. Welcome to the forum.

I think you mean bypass valve buddy, BOV are associated with Turbo's not Cold Air Intakes

I'm still looking for an AEM SOHC CAI. It looks like the only make CAI for ZETEC DOHC engines. Am I wrong?

It will still fit. like I said the only thing seperating the SPI and Ztech intakes is the TB the DOHC will fit the SOHC with a new TB.

Or... as mentioned in the "other" intake thread:

- get an adapter piece of rubber that fits the two sizes. The diameter of the SPI TB is 53mm, and the diameter of the Zetec TB is 57mm. Also...

- hose-clamp the bugger. If you're just taking up 2mm all the way around the TB, you "should" be able to make it work quite well without sacrificing the durability of the CAI. 2mm is rather tiny (not sure what that is in Imperial), so it should be rather easy to do.

In closing, a new TB (say the BDR 60mm) would be nice for throttle response, but would require the adapter bracket for an auto, and is a WHACK more cash that you don't need to spend if you're not massively modding the car out further. Which you might, and it's all personal preference in the end.
