It will, but I like my turbo loud. I may try just a green filter at first to see, before going to a whole open intake and tube.Induction noise will be high with that intake
Do a green filter swap on an ST and you will see how much of a difference it will make, it will be louder just may not be to that extent for the RS.I don't think a green filter will change the sound. The RS intake is essentialy an st intake with the cover removed, which is pretty loud.
Also real excited about the exhaust. You can see in all the videos exhaust is only coming from the right exhaust tip. I imagine when switched to sport mode, the left is used which bypasses the 2nd resonator.
I agree, I think they'll dress up the engine bay a bit more than thatI wonder how those pics were taken, Ford was adamant about not letting reporters take pics in the recent Road and Track article. I would be really surprised if that is actually the finished engine bay. For one, the engine cover is generic and I doubt that is the finished intake, especially considering you can see that the RS logo was painted at some point but isn't now.
Hmmmm, horseshoe airbox inlet.
First, mod will be to replace the air filter with either a K&N or Green filter to get rid of that OEM filter.
Looks awfully similar to the ST air box minus the horseshoe inlet top.
Please show a engine photo minus the engine cover.
The blue is on all 4's. However from what it looks like, the rears are the scrawny calipers you see on the standard Focus. I would have been nice to see the rears like a matching mini set of the fronts, but this would unnecessarily add to the cost. Form with no added function.Are the Brembo brakes only in the front or are they on all 4 wheels? Because it looks like the blue calipers are only up front.
There would be some function. At the very least it wouldn't look half assed while the front looks nice, the rears look like someone took a can of caliper paint to them in their garage. That's very disappointing.The blue is on all 4's. However from what it looks like, the rears are the scrawny calipers you see on the standard Focus.
