    I may have missed it, but did you guys say you'll have some pics of the Blue pipe installed? I'm a visual person and it may take this for me to decide between plain black and the blue

    This was by no means a random choice for a color, a lot of in-depth research and some help from some folks on the forums aided us in making the decision to pull the trigger on this blue. I appreciate your input though! What color would you have preferred to see?

    Can you please reserve me a blue intake until I get back to the USA mid of next week?

    Edit: Also, will you be offering intercooler charge pipes for the RS? I'd like to replace the lower IC hard pipe and prefer to stay with one brand rather than jumping around if at all possible.
    We have heard of that issue on the RS when using a high flow air filter. This intake kit has gone through hundreds of miles of road testing and we have yet to hear any whistling coming from our system. This kit is a redesign of the stock system and replaces everything from the turbo inlet to the airbox. In fact, we've had a kit on a loaner RS (the ) since late last fall, and the owner of the car has not reported back with any sounds of the like coming from the kit - and that was the prototype!

    We are actually working on intercooler piping fo the RS! Hot and cold side pipes, as well as the full kit, will be planned options when the project is complete. We have a thread documenting the process of this on-going project, so keep tabs on it for updates! There should be another one coming soon.

    Totally understandable. We have had a few requests for the pipe to be placed on the car so people can see what it looks like. I am planning an official blog update with images of the kit fitted on our RS at some point this week, so stay tuned for when that happens!

Size:  33.0 KB I would also like intercooler piping and an intercooler in this color as well. If you have no plans could you at least tell me the specific color it is called so I can get the parts done myself? Is it just gold anodizing or what? Most gold anodizing I have seen done does not turn out looking this good. The color usually is not as deep as this and is lighter in color and does not look near as good.

    Thanks for your feedback. A gold intake pipe would indeed be an interesting sight, but the RS Wrinkle Nitrous Blue choice was a more viable option for us production/cost-wise. Again, the decision for this color was not only based off of what we think would look cool, but it was based off of what we believed would be the best option according to the market when taking a look at our research and the overall consumer feedback.

    In fact, that is precisely how we came up with the idea to give the option of gold intercoolers! We gathered feedback to see what people wanted, and the most common request was gold - so we went with that. Right now, we are actually looking into doing a gold color option for our intercooler, so stay tuned for updates, as we have R&D threads on both our intercooler and intercooler piping!

    I guess the power gains require some kind of fine tuning?

    Nope, no tune required with the use of our intake!

    These RS's gather airflow information via a MAP (mass air pressure) sensor as opposed to a MAF (mass airflow) sensor. MAF based cars are very sensitive to changes in airflow because the sensor is usually located right after the air filter and it's accurately measuring the CFM entering the motor. Sometimes, tunes are required so the MAF can learn the change and not have the engine sustain poor performance or even damage.

    With a MAP based car, the sensor is located inside of the intake manifold, reading real time load. It is unlikely for a MAP based car to run poorly due to a change in airflow (say, an upgraded intake) and this is because of the way it's measuring airflow. Both sensors accomplish the same thing, they just go about different ways of doing so. Hope this helps!

    Installing your air intake void the OEM warranty? On my 2015 Yukon Denali I installed an AFE CAI and dealer said it would not void the OEM warranty.

    Installing this intake and aftermarket bolt-on parts in general should not void a vehicle warranty. The only potential negative effect would be the denial of a particular warranty claim (such as repair). In this case, your dealer would have to prove that the part itself was a direct cause of the warranty claim. If installed correctly, you shouldn't have any issues!

    Absolutely! We were happy with the gains as well, they stayed consistent throughout our dyno testing and actually a couple different Focus RS's. Check out our dyno graph!
