I have to admit that I havent been under the hood much on my 05. Its winter and in a year Ive only driven the car 7000 miles. 2000 of that was on 2 long roadtrips. So on my 03 Focus, I installed a CAI. Later, I ended up ditching it for an oem SVT Focus intake to make a strut bar and new valve cover fit. Anyway, the Focus CAI and many other cars place the filter down low behind the bumper cover. The other day I was under the hood of the Stang looking around. There is plenty of room to do the same on our cars. Why hasnt a single company designed such an intake? Im also going to call Volant when thier offices open. I emailed them weeks ago, no reply.
