I actually just installed it on my 2016 Focus. Haven't really noticed anything really. Revs up faster when I push hard on the gas.

I also installed it with the MST Silicone Intake hose and Mishimoto RS intake box.

Plan on getting a tune from Tom in a bit. So that should get a little more performance from the TB and other mods I did.

i would love to hear what gas mileage is with bigger tb and horsepower gains sounds like a waste of time and money for a daily driver unless you are running wide open running moonshine

We'll when I get mine installed and go through a few tanks of gas. I'll have an update on how it drives, response, and fuel mileage.

Garland15949,

I just installed the TB and the DM Spacer this weekend. WoW With my setup it's like a new car. It goes into the higher RPM faster and with little pedal pressure. Before I had to push it hard to get the car to move. I would say it was like having turbo lag, you had to push the pedal down allot harder.

Now It gets to the power quickly and it I believe it gave me back my low end torque. From 0-60 it pushes to your seat, and will just keep pulling and Pulling. I really don't have a road where I can push it more .

I just purchased a full tank of fuel after the install and will run it in Drive for this tank. Then the next tank I'll run it in Sport mode. The third tank will give the best overall gas mileage. I'll post the gas mileage for each.

Starting Gas Mileage: 31.9 (Cold week this tank)

I've been through several tanks of gas and I tend to be around 29.5 mpg.
