Question FS Cool flow or pipercross viper?Dont poll me down.

Hello folks.I know this issue has been talked about lots..

I'm still not sure which one is my best choice...
First.about fs cool flow..It has heat sheild,But Is it work?
We knew under the hood engine is very hot.Even the position that fs cool

My friend used the pipercross viper.It use the hose to reach behind the fornt bumper.So it can get more cold air.It seems viper works better.
But I know you guys give fs cool flow very good perfromance...
It's really confuse me........
thanks for you guys.And give me advice......

I don't even know what FS coolflow or Pipercross is. If I knew, I'd help you out. I'm still pretty new to this Focus scene. I just bought my car 11 days ago

For the price of the pipercross I don't know if its even worth it really. I personally run a AEM CAI and have no issues what so ever. I mean if you looking for large gains between intakes you won't really find that much of a difference.

I've always wanted a pipercross but, it just cost way to much

The Pipercross is the best performing intake I have seen on an SVT. That being said, they are a wallet drainer, no thanks to the fact that they're made in the UK. When I have the money for one, I will be getting one.

The FocusSport Cool-Flo is highly regarded, and is probably the best performing short ram intake available. If you wanted to go with a cold air intake though, AEM would be the best if you're not willing to spend on the Pipercross.

I'd disagree with the cool flo.. I think a Volant shaved (only on the bottom) to fit the SVT would work the best for a short ram... Especially if you get the ram air scoop, or make one yourself.

I used the Cool Flo and left the snorkel in to push cool air into the heat shield area and it worked pretty well, but when sitting still in the summer, the bog was kinda crappy pulling out.I ended up getting the piper cross and love it to death.

Pipercross filter is as nice as the Cool Flo and the carbon fiber housing stays cool while running. The hose pulls crazy amounts of air into the intake....I had to disconnect mine this winter cause it was sucking up rocks that were bouncing down the road, lol. With the hose disconnected it sounds just like the Cool Flo, hose on its a little quieter. The hose definitely helped with heat soak and like I said, it pulls a mad amount of air.

Definitely get a CAI though...you wont regret it. Many will argue for AEMs, they look nice, sound good and all that, but if you deal with crappy weather and dont mind the extra bucks the Pipercross is, without a doubt, the way to go. Nothing like being able to pull air from inside or out.
