Will also need to have a look about getting the ST snorkel. I don't really like the idea of leaving it just bare like that, and 5 bucks is a low price to pay.

Either way, looks like it'll all have to wait a bit; it started snowing here after such beautiful weather. I hope not many people here swapped out their winter tires...
I would get a Mountune or Green open end filter

There's also that on Amazon.ca, the price difference between the AEM AE-20993 and the K&N E-2993 is about $30... The K&N E-9289 is another $10 (so $40 from the AEM). Haven't really looked locally with the weather as it is. Thanks again!~


It's preference. The k&n and other oiled filters are cleanable and thus reusable. The aem is a dry filter thus requiring replacements.

Yeah, the AEM one is still advertised as being reusable. I'll take a look locally as well, see if there's one that has been mentioned that has a good sale on it or something.

Hi Guys, I've done the snorkle delete but not yet put a new filter in there and I've noticed my fuel efficiency has dropped by about 60km/tank, is this to be expected and will it be fixed with a new filter?
I've been quoted $150 to get a focus RS airbox (welcome to australia prices) and then a green filter would be approx $80 more, but I've seen the FSWerks intake includes a green filter with it. Even though it doesn't look open ended from the pictures, would they been the same filter? Which would provide better gains?

Surely a rs box would give better results? Or is it not noticeable considering the price.
Anyone know the cheapest way to get Green filters in Australia? The cheapest I can find a K&N is for about $95 but the end isn't open so not sure if it will do as well?

I doubt it would be a noticeable gain over just the stock air box with a open ended filter.

I did the snorkel delete and installed a AEM Dryflow filter last year (on my 2014 SE hatchback) and I have been very happy with the outcome. I have reduced the annoying lag at takeoff to the point that I no longer have to concentrate coming off the clutch in order not to stall (I would call it a 90% improvement). I think the clutch pedal has become less stiff which also helps with 'feel' (my Focus had 4 miles on it when I purchased it and now has 23K...it seems to have 'broken in' if that's possible...but at any rate the car is much more pleasurable to drive now.

I removed the entire snorkel but did not cut flaps etc...I also left the stock airbox when I installed the Dryflow air filter...if there was a slight difference in noise, I no longer hear it (I'm used to it). The same goes for MPGs....no noticeable difference.

My question is...Does removing the entire snorkel have any negative effects on the durability of the engine? I ask because I see that some have cut their snorkel and reinstalled it.
Thanks.
