I think I posted this to the old forum, can't find it, so I'm posting the original post here, with an update...

First, the Update

I have 12 kits cut to size and patterns cut, now I have to do some touchup finishing on the edges. I should have them on the website for ordering in the next couple days. I will offering them without a cut-out for a snorkle for those that just want a sheild, and then 2 versions with a cut-out for either the regular Focus snorkle(you use your stock snorkle, snorkle not included in kit), and the 3rd version is the SVT snorkle version.

I have not found any "lids" for the snorkles yet, and unless I find some before I start selling them, you will have to find a way to "cap off" the snorkle during a rain storm and/or winter time. I do not recommend you use the snorkle without a "lid" during a rain storm, as water will definetely rush up the snorkle and go right to the air filter, and that's not good...


Now the old part:
I call it the AEM CAI Ram Air Shield. Protects the filter from everyday dirt and whatnot, rams air to the filter at the same time. Uses the SVT Snorkle as the ram air, can be "capped" during rain or winter use.

What do you think ?

Yes, plexiglass. Should hold up fine. I've had mine on my car since mid-June or so, and while it's dirty, it's still holding up. I'll include more specs on the plexiglass later, it's a good quality sheet...

Is this only for the CAI? Are you planning one for the short ram, too?

This particular design is for the AEM CAI. I am working on something for the MAC short ram, but it's going to be a while.

Update

I have 12 kits ready to go and will be making more over the weekend. Order online at http://www.myFordPerformance.com/ under the category [Focus] Engine Performance Products & Dressup Accessories

3 choices available:
  • Plain Weather Shield, no cutout for either snorkle, IE, no "ram air" effect.
  • Standard Ram-Air Shield, with cutout for the stock Zetec snorkle, you supply the snorkle from your stock intake kit.
  • Jumbo Ram-Air Shield, cut and assembled with the SVT intake snorkle for maximum ram air affect.
All kits include mounting hardware, instructions and a Lifetime Warranty. Simple 5 minute installation, no cutting or drilling required!

UPDATE: I found some "lids" for the snorkle to be used when it's raining [thumb] Good secure fit, should stay in place, comes with each kit.

SVT Snorkle Kit (SVT Snorkle Included)


Standard Zetec Snorkle Kit (Snorkle not included)

Ray, you ever think of making your own intake system using this under car scoop design? i think you could do it realtively easy, and sell it just like you do this one and maybe make some more $$$

I've thought about it, could modify one of those BOMZ intake kits. I'd rather work on a heat shield for the MAC short ram kits though.
