Christmas time got myself a Fswerks Cool-Flo CAI with the green filter




Finaly a nice day came and I got to install it all went well but I saw the TB was a lil dirty so I decided to pop it off and clean it up while I was in there

Didn't realize how bad it was lots of buildup



A can of carb cleaner and a sore arm later.... good as new!


Final install



The zip tie has since been replaced with a proper hose clamp now


After thoughts are I love the sound it's like sex in my ears. maybe a tiny bit more getup and a MPG or 2

There's another one? Where? ..... lol
No one does mk2's they are the forgotten focus
I personally like these foci's over the new ones. Yes the ST is bad ass but other than the ST not a big fan of the MK3'S. Just a personal choice. (Wife has a 11 SES.)

I really like the MK2's also. I saw one on a different thread that was a four door with the dual spoilers and was all blacked out and lowerd and it looked sick. the ones on Fswerks website are badass too. if you could take the engine from the MK3 and put it in the MK2 it would be perfect. Also, would need to get rear disk brakes. drum's drive me nuts.
