we just had a G2G today in Lansing michigan, while we were waiting to order our food I brought up that intake. the basic consensus was that they are (from what we've read) exact duplicates of the AEM intake. (correct me if you know otherwise) In fact I'm toying with the idea of buying one. at a third of the cost of a true AEM. it's worth a shot

i think that buying one is a good idea. a tube is a tube. aem or not. what could be different.

I think I may get one and put in a AEM bypass.It has to be better than stock even if it doesn't come with the AEM decal.

It's the same intake as the AEM. All of the newer AEM CAI's for the Focus Zetec are of a 2 piece design. I'd spend $80 on it as long as you could live with out the AEM sticker, and the Carb stickers.

Well, I just said screw it and bought it, in order to check it out. It is made of the same grade aluminum (6061) as the AEM, however this is a 2 piece model (where I think the AEM long tube CAI is a single piece). We'll see, but for 89.95 total, I figured what the hell. I will be using a different filter most likely as I imagine the one included will suck.

all full length CAI's for the Focus are two piece. I know the AEM is for sure because there is the spot where the Bypass goes in.

I was looking at this too. I asked if it would fit an auto and they said yes. I beleive it is a copy of the new AEM that fits both auto and 5 speed.
