I was going to tackle this this weekend. Thank god someone else did it first. Doing the research, formatting, and linking in the FMIC thread took forever.
LOL. I knew you would do it, wanted to save you the trouble. Thank you for doing the FMIC thread. It is a pain but must be done.I was going to tackle this this weekend. Thank god someone else did it first. Doing the research, formatting, and linking in the FMIC thread took forever.

Ok. Now that we've covered this ^^ for the thousandth time, can we keep the comments on the justification for intakes at bay. There are plenty of other threads for that. This one is for options, fitment and pricing which is why I didn't include HP figures that can be very subjective.. Many of us spend money on something just for looks, like wheels and chin splitters for example. I've been to a lot of meets and it's no fun opening a hood to look at a bone stock engine compartment. Boring.. Justification enough for some people.I think the key point here should be save your money and get a tune first. Without the tune you will see no benefit as far as any performance gain. The ST's stock ecu will negate any benefit. Why not take the 220 to 350 dollars and apply that to your favorite flashing device or intercooler. Heck, spend 50 and buy yourself a pretty little AEM, K&N, blue, green or pink filter if that grabs your fancy. Pretty much throwing your money up in the air and letting the wind take it to hear the blow off sound. Stock airbox is more then sufficient to do the job and then you can pull the stock cover to accentuate the sound for free.
What is your reason for changing?I'll be replacing my Cobb one for the CP-e one. Waiting to see what special edition colors will be available!
That's already on the list. Last (alphabetical order) but not least.Here's another one for the list:
TR3 Focus ST Air Intake System
I've been running it since last December; it has near perfect fitment and a very reasonable price...
Take a look at the CP-E one! Aesthetic value for sure. There isn't much performance difference between the intakes besides how the filter is stored (IMO).What is your reason for changing?
As stated, I only wanted to start with full kits because there are so many variants and it's a lot of work actually finding pics to download and getting all the info right and the range of prices. But you are right, without those options it really doesn't show the whole picture for people who are in the market for intakes. I will add all options out there and variants I can find ASAP.A few of the FSWerks kits are missing.
The Cool-Flo OEM kits, the standard Cool-Flo, the turbo inlet tube, and our ITG variants.
2013 Ford® Focus ST Performance Parts and Accessories
Strange, I've installed this intake and don't remember it touching the engine cover anywhere but tolerances are kind of tight in the engine bay. Wouldn't say that everyone would have this issue though. You may also want to contact FSWerks if you ever try to put it back on.I have the FSWerks green filter Cool-Flo Plus. It looks great in the engine bay, different than other options, and it sounds awesome IMO, for those who wanted some more sound without getting an aftermarket BOV. The tube touched the engine cover just barely in one corner. I don't run with the engine cover so no problem at all. Very satisfied.
