they say that they've gotten the highest peak gains from their intake, but that was for a 2.3
they make quality stuff, but you'll pay less for a Marcy, or a FocusSport and get the same gains, minus a couple tenths of a horsepower

Any CAI will get you the gains you're looking for, none will leave you dissatisfied, so you might as well get the cheapest one, or the one in the color you really want, etc.


You can get a Marcy for like 180, a FocusSport for like 200-210 or something like that

Cosworth also makes one, but it's about 350, with no higher gains reported (well, none worth spending an extra 150 dollars over)

by the way welcome to the forum, you may want to look into Focus on the Beach, if you wanna drive that far, it's gonna be in Ventura

Dude yea that sucks. I have the AEM intake for my car and love it. I haven't had another CAI before this so I obviously don't have anything to compare it to.

I am probably going Saturday the 22nd so that would be cool to go up in a group rather than me driving by myslef.... I know there will be a ton of other foci's there but driving up with a bunch of others may be a different story.

I've only done it once, but there's something really cool about driving a focus in a pack of wild foci...lol
...and seeing all the civics in the vicinity rev on you
