Question BMC CDA Focus SVT Installation

Hello guys...

I have the European SVT brother, the ST170.

I bought a BMC CDA air filter and I am very happy with it, I can really feel the difference.
But I am sure that I can improve the performance with a better air flow between the exterior and the filter.

I put the BMC CDA air filter in place of the original OEM one, but I am looking for a better air flow there.

Does anybody have an idea?? thank you very much for your response..

either a hood w/ vents, or get a CAI which would route the filter to a different location, theres also that grill cover w/ the duct on it that goes in front of the snorkle

BMC CDA! Cool!!

The best air filter in production to me. Its expensive, but its very good

Try to pass a tube in the exit of the intake to the lower grill between the battery and the left light... Iīve seen that somewhere, but i donīt know where. Great mod thougth!

Do u have more mods? Iīm from portugal, and i find very hard to buy anithing to the ST170

hey 127 Boy.

I am from Switzerland and here I can find some good stuff for this car. It depends what kind of mods you are looking for...

I hate body tuning!!! But i like improving the performance of my car.

These are my changements for now:

- Bilstein PSS9 (one of the best shock absorber on the market)
- CSC exhaust system
- Front Anti Roll Bar ( picture taken before the installation)
- BMC Carbon Dynamic Airbox
- Bridgestone Potenza RE 050 A

What a pretty Carbox Airbox
Yes you are right I am very happy with this Airbox!

The filter has the same form than the cylender carbon box.

I let you imagine the resonance and the sonority. It s not too loud, but you really here the noise of the motor! It is gorgeous!

I advise everybody who wants to buy a filter to take this one!

Have a look on the main site of BMC:

Real cool!
Iīm a fan of performance too, and I donīt like bodykits.

Iīm thinking in de-catting, but i canīt find nothing here! Only supersprint has exaust system for the ST, but they donīt have a de-cat pipe!!! I was hoping to find a de-cat pipe to fit with my (almost done) cat-back "home-made" exaust system for track-day use! ;)
