no. The bar is bent to 'wedge' itself inbewtween the fuse box and intake box, wether it be an aftermarket intake or stock intake. I would have a pic to show you, but i guess i haven't taken any of the engine bay since i installed it.
FocusSport Upper-Front Stress Bars
An upper-front stress bar is an essential bolt on for all street & competition Ford Focus cars. The bar's rigid design helps to reduce the roll and twist of the front sheet metal frame, and in doing so quickens steering response and improves turn-in. Construction consists of strong 14-gauge mandrel bent heavy wall 7/8" diameter steel tubing. The tubing is then welded to 1/8" laser cut steel mounting plates. Designed specifically around the constraints of US model cars, the bar requires no modification of surrounding components (ie: Brake booster, fuse box, air box) when used in conjunction with the FocusSport Cool-Flo or the stock factory air box. Fits all SPI, Zetec, and SVT models and also now available for the Duratec 2.3L & 2.0L. The FocusSport upper-front stress bar is available in your choice of polished ceramic coated or colored powdercoated finish.
