I highly doubt it would fit the Steeda intake tube better. This one is mainly for those who have a larger TB with a stock MAF. I could be wrong as I haven’t measured it or installed it yet. I know others on the thread are installing today, so we should have an idea soon.

With the larger throttle body the stock tube is getting partially caved in, I may have to trim a bit off one of the ends of the MST but im sure I can make it fit, just might make removing and reinstalling the steeda intake a pita

Be careful taking the stock hose back off the throttle body. Mine wouldnt budge, and I just broke the plastic coolant hose im the process of forcing it off. Looks easy to replace at least

I got mine installed, but I had to do some trimming to make it fit. The two little hoses I cut off so they were just little nobs left to fit the factory Hard plastic sensors.

Plus I have a 1" Damond TB Spacer, so I had to trim about 1" off. I could have trimmed a little less but it all worked out. Without further ado

It looks pretty good. Post an update on how you feel about it after driving it around!

I'm not sure if its 100% worth it, or if it even adds anything; but I'd love some more information on it.

I would say its well worth it and will add better throttle response and give you a slight advantage over someone else who doesn't have it. It will open an almost straight shot to your TB. You won't see it on the dyno, but in the real world you feel the extra punch w/ better throttle response.

It'll take a little while for the computer to learn the extra air flow and adjust the Throttle response. I will say it has quieted my exhaust at idle, but at WOT it will still scream. More to come...

I would disagree on this, not performance you will see on the dyno but it will show up on the track. In real world settings just like adding the ST Snorkel it allows for better air flow to the filter which adds better off the line response.

Just like when you replace the Steel flywheel and add and aluminum it lightens up the unsprang weight which allows for faster RPM's to get to your power band. Adding the larger TB and hose gives the engine more response which does almost the same thing. More response, faster RPM's to reach your power band.

Its all about the combination of your set up, one item won't add allot but when you add it all in your combination, that is when you will see power gains. Granted it won't be much 1-5 hp maybe, but what you have and the other guy doesn't gives you the advantage.

I didn't think it would add any gains. The stock hose isn't all that bad and it's already a short intake.

If it makes the car feel more fun, then $60 isnt a terrible price to pay. I was considering it more for the fitment anyway.

Focus-philes,

My 2 cents:

The smooth finish is nicer, imo, than the stock accordian-pleated tube and it fits the bigger throttlebody better. It's not a very expensive upgrade.

Tom knows the numbers so I don't disagree that the performance gains are negligible but I put the bigger t/b on to sharpen up the throttle feel and response. It's not an expensive upgrade and it is dead easy to do.

And who can argue with spending <$150 to get some wrench time and some pizzazz under the hood?
