    This car is warrantied until 2024 so I won't be tuning it. The goal is to build a clean daily driver and maintain that warranty. We'll see how far we can push it...

    I hope you enjoy and I'll try not to eff it up!

    Mountune® Symposer Delete

    Notes:
    Install was incredibly easy, about 20 minutes in the driveway. It was good for getting the rust off the tools though...

    I think the block-off plate itself is thinner than the others I've seen. The kit included shorter replacement bolts. I realized this when the stock bolts bottomed out and plate was still dangling. Don't lose the o-ring like I almost did. It definitely frees up two decent size pockets in the engine bay. I think I might fill one of the gaps with an Oil Catch Can...

    Intake

    02/21/2017
    mountune® Low Restriction Intake (black), no filter
    mountune® High Flow Induction Hose
    Ford Performance RS Air Box
    Ford Performance K&N Filter

    Notes:
    Install was reasonably tough and takes a bit of wrestling to rotate the tube-ends into the couplings. The filter and air box was easy enough, just takes some careful fiddling and you'll get there. All said and done it took about an hour.

    The cold idle was noticeably louder than stock (Symposer Deleted). To be honest, after putting a few hundred kilometers on the Symposer Delete over the weekend I found the overall noise to be uninspiring and kind of bland. If I was staying stock I would definitely run the symposer. The revs now, with the open air box, sound incredible. A hint of turbo spool under the whoosh of air. There isn't much of a difference, if any, during regular driving, but during WOT the sound builds nicely into the higher revs.

    Project 'Metric ST' - 2016 MM ST3

    I'm getting antsy for spring. I just want to get under the car and get working...

    I got a call from the wheel shop yesterday - wheels and tires are in. Now for re-drill and refinish... should be ready by next week (even though the weather won't be).





    I'm also waiting on Steeda Jacking Rails. I will put those on first (in the cold) to get prepped for everything else once the weather turns.

    Until next time!

    Looks awesome! I like the RS air box. I was thinking of getting one for my ST and the RS engine cover which looks cleaning IMO

    Edit - I like the Ford Performance booklet cover, wonder where I can get one of those!

    Thank you! The added sound from the air box is great. Do we know if the RS engine cover will fit the same as the ST? I like the Ford Performance moniker on it but I have zero room against the mountune Intake.

    Yes, follow link to this other thread (& image) post #15: http://www.focusst.org/forum/focus-s...ml#post1317969

    I was just checking that RS airbox & engine cover thread earlier today.
    Looks like we both picked up our STs recently, cool. Will be interested to watch your build, I might have to make my own thread for mine, lol. I am not planning on doing anything to kick it off warranty too, but I've already started down the rabbit-hole. BTW, I like the symposer's sounds, (I installed my JBR (top quality piece of equipment) OCC under my airbox to keep the symposer) I will be keeping the piped in tunes until (if) I put on a front strut brace. I am thinking an RS airbox may be in order for mine too.

    Nice nice. I'm trying to keep my warranty too. I'm guessing we both have the extended warranty? 7yrs or 100k miles right? 2016 White ST1. So far I've done shifter bushings, pedal movement, supertone horns (CA traffic), a focus delete, rockblokz, and changed my ST badge colors. I think a RMM and short shifter are probably what's going to be next for this car.

    Everything I've read shows it as a direct fit. It's the same size and shape as the ST cover.

    Thanks for the link. I think that looks pretty good. I'll see if I can hunt down a part No.

    I like the symposer too but I want to enjoy the exhaust and open airbox. I'm curious to get the uprated BPV installed.
