so i want a cold air intake, i found osme cheap ones on ebay, i know they are cheap but still, i think they might work good , i just need the tubing, i got a brand name filter already, so which of these two would fit my 2003 zx3 sohc, they both say they will but they look different.
item number 8076865365 and 200000575211

Just got with a name brand. The eBay brand ones usually have terrible fitment and are all around junk. If you want something cheaper, check out the MAC or AEM short ram.

really, i believe just about any focus CAI can be made to fit on any focus... really

i'd ask in the SPI forum, because a SOHC isn't a zetec

I don't think the SOHC SPI carried on into the 2003 model year and I believe no hatches ever got a 2.0l SOHC. Just the DOHC Zetec, D20 and D23.

^^^i was thinking the same thing...if its a hatch then it has to have either a zetec or a duratec engine...and i think the 03's still had the zetec...meaning that u would have a 2.0L dohc engine...what does the valve cover say?

You have a hatchback. The hatchbacks didn't come with a SOHC. You have a DOHC.
