Talking Video on TB (RDC) Upgrade

Helps with understanding all that's involved with removal of peripheral items and installation of new TB.

It feels awesome all the way through and through.
The video does pay respect to Red Devil Customs for coming up with this modification originally.

questions

I was wondering if these mods will work on a 2014 5 sp SE?
I have the RS airbox on my focus as well.
I was wondering what will be the impact on the throttle response for a car in the Denver area which is at 5280 ft above see level?

thanks

bob

Too much flow through the engine at this altitude might actually slow you down a bit up here and push torque higher up in the rpms and we need all the torque we can get the 2900lbs moving if you really want to see a real world diff.

IMO save your money or buy a turbo ST if you want to defeat the altitude a bit.

New focus owner here, I have read through the thread and am still unsure if the delete would benefit the setup that I have planned. I have ordered an RS airbox and Cobb open ended filter. Once installed would the additional openness of the filter and box combo negate the benefit of deleting the snorkel? Trying to get some advice from owners with a similar setup.

Hey! I don't have this setup, I just have the snorkel deleted with a drop in filter. I also removed my airbox resonator and got the bottom of the airbox that the ST's come with to plug that hole.

Ultimately, I don't foresee that using the RS airbox lid with a green openended filter in conjunction with the snorkel delete would negate any benefits. One thing you could possibly think of doing would be to, perhaps down the road, add one of those snorkels that feed the air directly into the airbox (for example, the Velossa Tech ones or Ford Racing snorkels.)

Again, this is all based off what little I know about the OEM snorkel delete and I could 100% be incorrect.

I tried the setup you are describing on my 2013 focus SE 5 spd manual, and did not like it.

I had first deleted the snorkel and dropin AEM filter with stock airbox, observed noticeable improvement in throttle response and low end pickup.

After a few hundred miles I added full rs airbox setup, increased the sound of intake (only above 3-4k rpm) and also observed drone at about 2~2.5K rpm while cruising in city traffic. Did not improve the performance, slightly reduced it, ambient temperature was around 100F and IAT's were 120+ around that time, I was heat soaking, so I went back to just snorkel delete + dropin AEM with stock airbox.

I am planning on 63mm throttle body upgrade and RAM air snorkel (3D printed)

I'm at 5,000ft-6,000ft ASL and I don't have too many issues with low end torque. Just ensure you're using 91 instead of 85.

63mm, stock airbox, snorkel, and airbox resonator delete works perfect.

Hi guys, I'm going to refresh the thread. As I own an Ti-VCT engine not 2.0 but 1.6 105BHP (hooray for EU downsize...) will above TB fit in? I've already got K&N intake mounted and now searching for some other mods that could help me out with this beast.
