looking at it it would be pointless as the gap on the front lets the air to the intake at the front the rubber seal would just block this but the 2.0 has a different setup so the seal would work for that as the intake sits under the front upper grill and not on top of it

it exactly the same setup on a 2.0 as on a 1.8, anyway yes a 2006 focus should have a rubber strip just under the front of the bonnet.

i was referring to the us 2 litre svt intake which is a popular mod instead of the intake sitting above the slam panel it actually goes underneath the slam panel up against the upper grill
