Isn't an axle back basically just for looks and sound? No wonder you were a bit faster if that's the case.
It's a full exhaust haha

After seeing the various intake results (drop in/snorkel delete is decent), a combination that matches of that and a CAT back should do better than Steeda/axle back.

Balanced changes to intake/exh. even if not huge by themselves work much better than a change at one end alone.

Question Coilovers

Does anyone have any updates with putting coilovers on a 2015 Focus Se Hatch? If so were you faced with any issues down the road? What brand do you recommend for being a daily driver?

I have a 2012 Focus with a drop in high-flow airfilter, its K&N. And I want to go cold air intake, but I've been told ROUSH is good, but its just a high flow filter with an air tight seal to the hood, but what I want to know if its worth investing in a CAI for my car or should I just stick with my current?

If u have a NA (non ST) intakes will free up a few horsepower more than a drop in filter, I actually have a Roush kit on mine and seems to run a lil better than just a drop in but I've been told the Steeda or FSWERKS intakes are pretty good too

Having had the ROUSH for some months. I get consistent performance (butt dyno) in hot or cold weather. Warm air rises and the ROUSH seals the box to the hood preventing pulling in that hot air. Yet it also keeps the factory connection to the snorkel, pulling in cold air and an open ended cone so that you pull in more air. It seems like a good design to me.

The growl it gives is just music to my ears. Makes the engine sound bigger than it is.
