The intake looks oddly familiar to the marcy unit
I wonder why
. Anyway I'd say the gains would be right around the 8hp they all seem to be giving. Until AEM comes up with one for the PZEV I wouldn't expect any difference. There's will probably net like 10 or so.

Re: FC Cai Available and Cam Sprockets soon.

I find it hard for them to eek much out, unless its a drastic difference. You can't use their V2 technology on it.
They always find a way to one up the competition by one or two hp. Oh well..i'm not waiting a year for that to come out.
I already enjoy my intake everyday.

Well, i've never met you in person, but I am sure you are very wrong. You are probably a very pretty man!

Just be careful. Remember Focus Central has a history of being first to market, but last in quality! But at least things are coming!!

Re: FC Cai Available and Cam Sprockets soon.

umm, i think i'm on crack...well I know i'm on crack. But i looked at the FC header, and then i looked again, and then again. And in can't see the tri-Y. I also see four tubes going into the collector. It looks like a 4:1 header, not a 4-2-1. Correct me if wrong...

...I dunno about your crack status, but you are very correct here...Theres nothing 'tri-Y' about this header...

...and the tubes don't even come close to being equal length from what I can see. I always thought a well tuned header had equal length tubes??

Re: FC Cai Available and Cam Sprockets soon.

you're absolutely right...key word being well-tuned. MOst don't bother, and the effects really won't become apparent until you reach the higher RPM ranges. SInce a long-tube header already improves high RPM power anyway, customers still see nice gains, not as nice as they woudl see with an equal length, but still nice enough that they can get people to buy the header.

I wanna see a 4-2-1 soonish.

Re: FC Cai Available and Cam Sprockets soon.

Is there enough room for a good 4-2-1 design? Won't this header be even louder because it is right next to the firewall?

Hey guys,

I just ordered the FC CAI and FC UDP's. I read in the description it was built to work with the stock airbox with "slight" modification. Would anyone know to what extent that modification is or what needs to be done? Thanks.
