    Mountune, Fswerks, Finsport or Auto Specialists?
    I have heard all but Mountune and Finsport for the FiST. All these CAI's look like they mount differently. Im looking to purchase one of these but im undecided. I would like board members opinions on which one they think is best performance wise.

    I would tend to lean towards the FSWerks intake since they always seem to be able to produce a high quality product that actually works. I am sure the Mountune stuff is outstanding, but seems very pricey. I am unsure about Finsport. Given the vast years in the sport compact market, I would go with FSWerks.

    Here's a teaser pic of our prototype intake from the SEMA Fiesta ST we did with Ford, Tanner Foust, and the Pat Tillamn Foundation. Hopefully more details on availability will be here soon!

    Shoot! how did I forget about COBB? You guys need to hurry with your intake cause we are becoming impatient...

    None yet. I was really waiting for FSWerks as their products are usually great. But, I dont like the lack of heat shields they finished their product with. Figured it would have been more similar to their Focus offerings.

    Cobbs from the pic's looks like a mountune copy but using the OE bottom air box w/ hardpipes.

    Mountune is engineered well w/ more volume and multiple air intakes. Couple it with their forthcoming steel reinforced large diameter silicon hose kit and you'll have mega flow. But, I'm a sucker for intake noise (which it wont increase)

    The other offerings from the UK so far are for the most part are just clamp on open filters w/ no heat protection.

    My decision will likely end up based off dyno #s

    That's a custom airbox lid hiding the not-even-close-to-a-mountune-copy air filter. ;)

    Thats why I'm waiting to see what comes out with #'s to back them up.

    From the pic, it looks to be a cone filter mounted downwards inside the OE box with hard pipes added along with a custom lid. Hell, even if that is all it is and it produces good results more power to you.
    Sometimes intake systems are actually designed really well from the factory to begin with (with their army of hundreds of engineers) that there isn't much to be gained from things like this.

    So get back and tell those guys to get crackin! We are eager for parts :)

    Agree 100%! Modern airboxes are really well designed and that's why we utilize the stock one on the Focus ST.

    I put extra caffeine in the coffee this morning. :wacky:

    I'm tempted by the JS Performance silicone tube.

    Its available in black and almost OEM looking so that with a nice (mostly hidden) mandrel bent pipe connecting the tube to the turbo, it will retain a sleeper look.

    If the air box becomes the restriction, then maybe add a Mountune box. If the filter can't keep up, time to get creative.

    On the other hand I'm planning for a turbo upgrade that might need more air than the stock filter can reasonably provide and under hood bling isn't always my thing.

    I don't like any of them, so I was thinking of building something. The OEM air filter housing is a little on the small side for the simple reason there
    is no room. My idea (maybe) is too mount the battery in the rear hatch area in a battery box and build a air filter housing where the battery is currently located. Plenty of room to built something that is a decent size and run a cone filter with a cold air intake.

    I will probably get the Mountune lower box and, if anyone makes an intake pipe that mates to the OEM box, I'll grab one of those.

    Have fun with that, lol. There's reasons as to why companies build certain products the ways they do, and I'll support the people who continue support our beloved small Fords!
