Thumbs up Typhoon CAI took 0.8 seconds off 0-60 times!!!

I had a buddy in the car, using a very accurate timewatch, test my 0-60 times on a cold night in California, well not that cold because its CA. Anyways... without the cold air intake my 2005 Focus ST ran a 7.8 seconds, tested about 5 times just to make sure.

With the K&N Typhoon & Drycharger Kit intake installed it did 7 seconds flat over and over. Don't forget there was another person in the car, he weighs about 195! I highly recommend this intake for anyone with a 2.3L Duratec. Dyno results indicate about 8.7 hp gain at the wheels, at the wheels! It really woke up my ST!

What's also very sweet about this intake is that ofcourse the sound changed drastically, but now the driver and people outside the car can really hear the air being sucked it in the motor, especialy when the car has sat over night and started up in the morning. Because all ST's have sport tuned suspension, adding intake made the muffler sound so much more beefy. I make it sound like it has a turbo if I shift right after 3,200 RPM's and push the gas a little bit, let's out a "ppppssssss" noise. And also, I raced my buddy's 2004 GTI 1.8T and it was perfectly even up untill about 100 mph. He is a gearhead so I know he's shifting properly. These new aluminum block/head Mazda engines really kick buns! Any questions about installation let me know, i'd be glad to help!

Check out my ride and installation pics (also Dyno results):

Point of interest to a comment on your pictures "8.7 hp equals about 15 at the crank" or such. An increase of 8.7 at the wheels equals 8.7 at the crank, because the drivetrain and accessories don't take up any more power.

its funny because there is a loss of power from the crank to the wheels. Thats why when ford says duratecs have a 150 hp, it means that that measurement is at the crank. At the wheels the hp is more like 130 for manuals, and 115 for automatics. Meaning that there is a loss at the drivetrain.

Talking "Know-it-alls"

I like how the only thing people had to comment was on correcting me. I accidently said suspension, when I meant to say exhaust. Oh and "Simply Domestic Focus" is correct about the hp gain. If the hp at the crank is 150, its really about 130. My point was to tell Duratec owners that this intake is sweet, why is forum full of haters? WE ALL DRIVE A FOCUS DON'T WE? Maybe 15hp at the crank was a little much, more like 13. But if 8.7 hp was gained at the wheels, than it would be correct to say my "base" or "crank" increased also.....

One correction I have to make is that ST's do have tuned exhaust. If you don't agree with me than you really don't know your car.

To PDQ Eagle, know your stuff before you make silly comments!

CONCLUSION, which nobody can dispute:

The CAI makes the ST sound better and go faster. Unless you don't like a louder engine. In which case go away.

I think your method of measuring time is subjective.
Taking almost a second off time your 0-60 with an 8.7 increase hp seems a little far fetched...

Do a search on a dyno calulator and it will tell you a closer average of maybe shaving off .3 off a 1/4 mile.

whooaa, whoaaaa, whooooaaaah there... I commented on the sport tuned suspension comment. I was just merely pointing out that I didn't understand what you were saying, which I didn't. Now you come back with "haters" and griping about correcting you. I wasn't correcting you, I was wanting you to clarify, but since you came back with all this attitude then I have to point out it was your stupid mistake that had me confused to begin with.
