I would look up the Hot Rod Wagon mod if you are looking to modify the stock intake system

Right now the air has a direct route to the engine from the grille. There's no better location for it.

I asked this question a few months ago. I have a CAI already though, so I was wondering if relocating the intake would make the CAI more efficient. I was told that unless the air was colder, it wasnt going to be more efficient. I thought maybe it could be relocated down by the foglights, but it would really be about the same thing. I decided that insted of relocating the whole intake system, I could add another one! So I went to the local junkard and got all the piping from another Focus. But...it is still sitting in my room so I have yet to know if it helps or not. lol

see in logic it should be colder air and if i hit higher water its gonna take a lot to suck all the way to the stock box but how were you gonna add a second one just curious
