    I just want to hear it spool.

    I know this is my first post, I'm not a troll!
    I just bought a 16' focus st a couple days ago, and i like it so far. My buddy also just bought a 16' gti, and we swapped cars yesterday for about an hour. Comparing the two i do much rather the focus, its handling just feels much more natural, we couldn't agree on who's car was faster so they are close. But driving his car.. all you can hear is the turbo spooling, super loud too.
    OK, getting to the point. What is the best cold air intake for these cars ?

    Welcome and congrats! I would recommend just getting a filter like a Green filter or K&N instead of a whole intake. The stock intake is plenty as far as following. If you just want sound, the filter is the fastest and easiest way of getting it. If you want to do more cash, there's plenty to choose from. Good luck!

    you likely aren't hearing spooling because the turbo in these are tinny and silent. Tell you open them up or make them bigger, not sure how you would hear it.

    You are likely hearing the sound symposer... I would HIGHLY recommend deleting that and then getting a AEM air filter and a intake tube. The AEM filter isn't going to make your intake louder but it is imo the best aftermarket filter.

    Or if you want to spend big money go pick your favorite brand and buy their intake. Steeda has a nice system ( just make sure they fit the 16, I know there is some differences between 13/14 and 15/16)

    i guess ill be deleting the symposer then! I have a 2013 duramax and my turbo is just deafening in it. I'm not expecting it to be like that, but i just want to at least hear it lol

    Stupid question. But does doing a sound symposer delete void warranty? And does it hurt the car in anyway?

    i possibly can't imagine so, i was just doing some research on it. it just seems that its only intended uses is to transfer some motor noise into the car... but i could be wrong lol

    @jasonsc95 Welcome and congrats on the new ST, I got the filter in the COBB Stage 1 Package, which I believe if you ask some is the same as a green filter.
    Though our turbos are tiny and quiet, switching the filter out and leaving the top off the housing will provide a nice sound.
    Here's mine!
    Also I just installed the steeda sound symposer delete, alot nicer interior sound without it!
