Oh of course, I ended up here from a google cross reference to his comment and was wonderig if a tune would fix it since its transmission related. But my current question is, I have a full stock 14 focus SE Sedan, I plan on doing this delete, would I need to buy a CAI kit first to use a drop in? The K&N filters I'm shown are the cylinders. Not the square drop ins I see in all the videos I've been watching.

K&N and several other companies make drop-in cylindrical filters for the Mk3 Focus. You don't need a "CAI" kit.

What is the ST inlet some people have been saying to add when you do the snorkel delete? I can’t find any references to it in the first couple pages of this thread.

Did the snorkel delete and K&N filter modification last weekend.

Hard to tell any difference in sound or performance, but fuel economy has improved about 2 MPG under the same conditions the car is regularly driven in. Is this typical of this modification?

I plan to do a cat back exhaust and Tom's tune in the near future. Also considering changing to the Mustang TB if it makes sense.

As far as sound I couldn't tell much difference either but a slight darth vader inhale when you floor it, stationary of course.

I had a decent increase in MPG as well. 2-4 MPG depending on how I'm feeling and the day of the week. Performace had a SLIGHT increase in higher rpms but barely noticeable. So yeah, you're sitting
good. 😎

I dont have the funds for a tune or exhaust atm but I plan the exact same in the future. But for now Im doing a cut at the resonator and straight piping to look stock. Also upgrading the TB is happening too, just still unsure as to which one to invest in. Have you looked into a new header as well? Tremendous flow with these mods my guy! Awesome plans none the less. Cant wait to see what else ya got! 😁

Ridix - I ordered the Mustang TB, Gasket and bolts last week. Next month the exhaust and the tune. At that point I'm done for awhile. I wish the exhaust wasn't so expensive but by all accounts this will result in better performance while not making the sound too loud or droning. Cheers

Sweet! Yeah, exhaust are pretty expensive. But you will definitely have some increased performance. I'm interested to see the Stang TB on it tbh. Do you have a website or part number I could use to research?
