    No, that is not needed from what we've seen here. This is a MAP based car so it's not as sensitive to air intake changes like the typical MAF equiped cars. Even though the car has a MAF sensor, it's not being used for airflow on US and Canadian models.

    It takes about 1 to 1.5 hours for the average DIYer.

    Yeah, so post up some pics once it's installed and let us know how you like it. :) The FSWERKs intake will be my 2nd mod after I get my Christmas present... ~cough.. cough~ ~Cobb AP~ ~cough.. cough~ lol

    Geeezum, I can't imagine how or why it would even take that long. Looks really straight forward and easy.

    That just Canada or any car with a block heater from the factory...My clip is mounted between the air snorkel and the hood clasp on the top of the radiator area..

    I guess I can't use one of those.
    I don't have a block heater at all. :(
    But the ball heaters work very well. :)

    Yeah, that's a nice looking setup but I still have my doubts with it being exposed to the engine environment. Sure it's going to get some cool air from the original cold air tube but it's also going to suck up warm air from under the hood. It makes me wonder if this isn't one of those deals where the dyno numbers look great but real world performance not so much.

    I drove our Fiesta ST with the Cool-Flo kit installed and it drives VERY well. That car really feels like a rocket. :cool:

    Umm...not a biased opinion, right ? :p lol

    I am not saying that your Cool-Flo doesn't work. (I'm sure it does)
    But didn't it feel like a rocket before? ;)

    Just trying to let people know that it works very well with the Cool-Flo.

    I'll be giving it a go, replete with dyno runs after I get a few more miles on my car. I don't see a problem with this kind of intake with an efficient intercooler. I used a short ram on my MS3 and they typically give ridiculous gains on that platform, even with the stock top mount intercooler. I can see where some heat soak might be an issue on a 100 degree day in stop in go traffic, but who cares... it's not like you are going anywhere in a hurry. lol. I do find it odd that this part is now available but no dyno runs have been produced.

    I do know that FS Werks does build some good stuff but I am also surprised that they didn't provide a Dyno test.

    As far as I know, Cobb hasn't made tuning software available to anyone so there is no way for FSWerks to get the most out of the intake.

    I'm impatiently waiting for the software also.

    I bet we will see a lot more dyno numbers after people can actually tune for their parts.

    FSWerks has the ability to tune and was given permission by COBB to release their own tunes.

    I just dont think they have a stock car to do a dyno, install parts, dyno run on to get the #'s.

    They only have their SEMA modded car.
