Just looked at the pics again, looks like I need to do some more smoothing up of the little stuff, I think I will wait until it is warmer as it is 22F with a 15mph wind

Just put a horn on the front of it and you won't have to have the thread moved.

I like your wheel covers. nice and symmetrical with the zap straps.

So I had the pcv hose changed out a few months ago, changed out the idle valve (hanging idle) and did a fresh tune up with new motorcraft plugs and coil boots, now possibly gonna work on the WAI, looking to retrofit the airbox from a 2012 Focus and hope to build a custom box to have pvc screw in caps for the WAI or CAI depending on everything else, also I am needing to rethink my lower airdam because the factory one sits back from the front bumper, more pics to come.

Well after a long hiatus in the posting department of my own stuff, I am proud to have hit 38MPG in my car, I was able to hit 29MPG avg for 50 miles with my wife's Mercury Mariner doing the same route and techniques

55MPH in a 60 or 65 with cruise on, 42MPH in a 55 zone with cruise on, coasting down all major hills, and shutting off engine at stops all the time!

So I have been doing some research, and I am getting ready to make a cold air intake for the retail price of around $30 using factory ford parts!!!

2012 Focus air filter, maf adapter and that is it

Remove resonator on top and the tube that houses the maf on the 2005-2007 focus, may also apply to the 2008-2011.

Keep in mind, I am still going to do a warm air solution, but my air box is one of those "lifetime filter housings"
