Intake inlet

So i have a green filter's open end drop in filter in my 2014. I want to keep the stock box but i was wondering if it would be at all benifiatial to replace the inlet (the hose that goes form the filter box to the throtle body) with something like what comes with the full intake kit from like K&N and i think Steeda. Does anyone think it would make much of a difference? Do they even sell something like that seperate from the intake?

The ones for the ST require a turbocharger due to their shape and configuration.

The air induction system is completely different between the two cars with the exception of the actual air box and throttle body assemblies.

You might be able to ask Steeda about buying their metal MAF housing and changing the stock hoses for smoother ones, but I can't see there being a great benefit there personally.

Yeah I know the ST is different, I've popped the hood on my car before lol I was just using that as an example. The first link in post 2 keeps the stock box but changes the filter and inlet to make it sort of a stealth intake. That's what I was going for.

It would be cool if we could just get the inlet tube from the k&n intake



I'm wondering if there is something similar to that.

I sent them a email so I'll post their response when I get it.

Some one posted in a form that the stock tube flows just as good as aftermarket but if your just after looks go for it.

Well if that's the case then i wouldnt worry about it. I'm not to worried about looks I prefer the stock look. If did go for a new inlet it would be black so it didnt look aftermarket. I got the idea from a thread i read a while back from focaljet that compared all the different intakes with actual dyno numbers and the K&N had the biggest gains and the only difference i saw between the different intakes was the K&N replaced the inlet where as the other intakes just replaced the box and filter. And then i was reading on fswerks and they offered there "OEM intake" for the ST Focus which is the first link in post 2 and it utilized the stock box with a aftermarked inlet and filter. So i thought maybe doing something like that would be benifitial to the N/A Focus too. I'll have to do some more research though. If it's not going to be benifitial then i dont really care to do it.

That pipe plus a ported throttle body should be worth at least 30 hp.
