you really won't feel a power difference at all. You feel the engine to be more responsive to the gas

Yeah the throttle body doesnt really rob a lot of power on the stock engine. You can port the one you have now and get about the same gains. Depending on what you mean by power you could add a race header or cam gears. If you want big power get a head package or FI.

You have an aem cai . That changes the maf to the exact same size as the intake tube that you bolted it too 2.5 inches or 63mm or so almost 65 mm maf size. you would have to cut your aem cai to fit a bigger maf and wouldnt see any advantages . You arnt using all the cold air your getting as of yet would be my guess.

Wanna feel more power? Get a more powerful car. Otherwise you can go the forced induction route.

is there any disadvantage in the 70mm tb? i know it has no idle air valve or whatever, but i don't know how that affects the car as a whole.

Air! If you have your foci breathing in better (CAI), then you need to compliment it with an exhaust system that can freely fart out the gasses. Less restrictions the better. A good starting point.

If you really wanna feel power, trade your Focus in on an 03 Cobra.... Drove one yesterday and left white stains on the seats!
The torque is enough to make you yell for your mama!
