[b]ive done some research on the internet prior to choosing the correct brand of replacment induction filter,
most would assume that the best choice to be K&N but i have found Green Cotton Air filter to have the edge over K&N or PiperCross due to Green's manufacturing process being more hands on instead of automated manufacturing.

the green filter in bonded with precision to the frame of the filter the results are more air flow in to the filter where K&N use an automated process resulting in over use of bonding glue to the frame of the filter which can spread across the panel restricting flow and performance of the filter leaving is performing less than K&N's original prototype that they use to get their gains figures from.
but anyways enough of me blabbing on about the differences, because the information is available on other websites for all to view without me re-typing it lol.

So here's whats in the box for the focus 1.6TDCi induction filter.[/b]

Ive decided to upgrade the standard ford induction filter in my 1.6TDCi focus to a free flowing high performance induction filter. and since i was changing it ive decided to create this guide to show others what is envolved aswell as report on the performance difference between the stock and aftermarket direct replacment air box filter.

[b]fitting time takes around 15-20 minutes,[/b]
[b]Tools required are an 8mm socket and a pair of rubber latex gloves[/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2372.jpg[/img][/b]

[b]So Open the bonnet, [/b]

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2408.jpg[/img]

[b]remove the battery cover if fitted. [/b]
[b]and using the 8MM socket loosen the 4 bolts that are holding the lid of the induction box in place. [/b]
[b]please note the bolts do not pull free/seperate from the lid,[/b]
[b]they remove from the bottom section but stay inside the lid section by design,

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2373.jpg[/img]

Once lid has been removed you will see your heavy stock ford filter, [/b]
[b]hopfully ford wont have bent your stock filter when putting it in their as they have done with mine. [/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2377.jpg[/img][/b]

[b]place your hand on the top end of the filter and pull upwards to remove it. [/b]
[b]once removed, ensure the lid from the induction box aswell as the 8mm socket are stored off of the engine bay and close the bonnet if you are planning to wait a couple of minutes prior to fitting the new filter. this will help prevent any contamination getting in to the induction pipes. [/b]
[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2378.jpg[/img]
Lenny
[b]Here are some images of the stock induction filter removed from the induction box, it is heavier than the replacment and it manufactured with a paper style material that becomes very soft and britle when wet or damp,

wet or damp conditions can occour in the induction box in both winter and summer being caused by the heat of the engine creating condensation in the air box,
thankfully the material used in the Green filter is cotton a much better material for this type of filter and alot more breathable in both damp and dry conditions.
[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2381.jpg[/img]
as you can see more clearly in the image below,
the stock filter was bent when installed and i assume by my local ford dealership last march when it was booked in for a full service, thankfully by fitting the Green filter in the induction box,
ford wont have any reason to touch the replacment filter any time soon because its good for 80,000 miles,
when that distance has been clocked
Priracing also stock & supply cleaning kits for the induction filters to renew the life for a further 80,000 miles.
[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2387.jpg[/img]

as you can see in the image below,
the inside area of the stock filter is very small and the 117 pleates seem to be crammed togeather very tightly,
to be honest i wouldnt consider the stock induction filter to be sufficent enough to breath through air for myself never mind the engine and a human body wouldnt vacum as much air in as a car.

i really didnt expect it to be so restricted,

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2382.jpg[/img]

Since i had the filter removed i decided to take the oppertunity to clean out the induction filter housing,
and i spotted what i assumed to be a stone in the base of the air box, i couldnt reach in to pick it out with my hands so i had to fetch a tweasers from the tool box.

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2379.jpg[/img]

To my surprise
it wasnt a stone at all :o
as you can see in the image below, it was a Snail :D i know diesel engines are said to be slugish but i didnt ever expect to find a Snail stuck inside the air box, it would be fantasy to assume that he got sucked off the road in to the induction box, :lol: but i can only assume that he went in their when the car was in it's 6 month storage period earlier in the year. perhaps he thought he found a mate with the Garret GT1544v Turbo situated to the left of the induction filter housing.

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2380.jpg[/img]

I used to Matt finish Armor All dashboard wipes and a hoover to clean out the inside of the induction filter housing, then closed the bonnet for 15 minutes allowing the area time to dry before fitting the new free flowing Green Cotton Performance Induction filter.

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2390.jpg[/img][/b]

[b]I decided to meassure the differences between the filters to observe if their was any. [/b]
[b]i found that had ford not buckled the stock filter installing it in to the induction housing the it would be the same height as the Green Cotton Performance Filter at just under 8'' Inches. [/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2386.jpg[/img][/b]

[b]The filters differ in width/diameter though, [/b]
[b]the stock filter is 6'' inches in width/diameter and the new Green Performance Filter is 5.5'' in width/diameter [/b]
[b]this will allow more air circulation around the filter inside the airbox, aswell as more base clearance in the unfortunite event of any water engress due to flooding, the Green Cotton filter is positioned .5'' higher in the induction housing aswell as being constructed of Cotton it wont store much moisture compared to the stock paper style filter that could potentially store up to 3 times its size in moisture. [/b]

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2385.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2383.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2384.jpg[/img]
Lenny
[b]Overall the Materials that have been used to create the Green Performance filter are considerably better than the stock ford induction filter,
this can be most clearly saw on the image below with the support bar to prevent folding of the filter.
ford have got a similar type of support on the stock filter but it is less than 1mm thick and of flat design which makes it usless due to its ability to kink easily thus weakening the structure and allowing the filter to fold as it has on mine.
Green Performance have addressed the issue much better by fitting round stainless steel supports which have no corners to kink and would withstand much much higher pressure than the stock filter support,
To give you an idea of this:
if you were to squeeze the stock filter support bar then it would bend, </strong></p>
but i reckon if you were to hammer the suppot on the Green Performance filter, it still woundt budge or deform.
Quality Stuff all round. B)[/b]


[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2389.jpg[/img][/b]
[b]In the images below you can see for yourself the bonding of the filter with no glue, or plastic obstructing the flow of the filter and a consistant straight edge around the housing. [/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2395.jpg[/img][/b]

[b]Below is an image taken of inside the Green Cotton Performance Filter,
Their is much more room for air and you can even see much more light through the 0.1 Micron holes in the cotton. resulting in free flowing clean filterd air going in to your motor as it demands. [/b]
[b]resulting in less lag and a perfect mix of fuel and air, resulting in better engine performance, better sound and more MPG. [/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2392.jpg[/img]

The Image Below is inside the stock Ford Induction Filter. :([/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2382.jpg[/img][/b]
[b]At this point the induction filter would be dry and free of contaminants,
so time to get fitting the new performance filter! :D[/b]

[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2390.jpg[/img]Remove the plastic cover from the filter and put on the latex gloves to prevent any dirt on your hands from staining the lovely Performance Green colour of the filter that is much like the focus RS

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2398.jpg[/img]

Align the filter rubber base up to the pipe ensuring the induction pipe is inside the filter rubber flap,
i found the easiest way to do this is to gently push the filter on to the pipe while rotating it in one direction,
by rotating it you will pass through the full seal area and be able to stretch the rubber flap of the filter around the pipe forming a good Clean seal.

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2397.jpg[/img]

Once the filter is positioned on the induction pipe correctly,
The next step is to rotate it while gently pushing at the same time, in order to bring the lip of the filter flap to the bottom of the induction pipe and tight to the wall of the induction filter housing as you can see in the image below.[/b]



[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2401.jpg[/img]when the filter is positioned fully home, as saw in the image above this text,
then it should slot in to the two teeth on the opposite wall of the filter housing as saw in the image below this text.[/b]



[b][img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2400.jpg[/img]Their is also a rubber plug that holds the unduction housing in the engine bay and helps to prevent vibration,
mine came loose when cleaning the induction filter housing so its a good precaution to ensure it is pushed down when fitting is completed.

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2406.jpg[/img][/b]
Lenny
[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2403.jpg[/img]

[b]The filter is now fitted tightly in position, [/b]
[b]their is no guidance on either filter in regards to where the support bar section of the filter should be positioned, but i decided to position it in the same place that the stock one was damaged, [/b]
[b]it may prevent any damage from happening or support a weak spot i dont know but its as good a place as any,[/b]

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2402.jpg[/img]

[b]Final step is to replace the housing and re-tighten the four 8mm bolts,
take care to ensure that the right side of the lid is sitting in to the groove on the top end of the induction filter because the top section of the filter is also the side wall of the induction box,
this design by ford may be to assist cooling inside of the housing.

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2405.jpg[/img]

[img]http://i575.photobucket.com/albums/ss192/lennymanwoods/Image2373.jpg[/img]

Finally replace the battery lid and close the bonnet,
take the car for a drive and feel the difference for yourself,

[/quote]
Thanks mate,
The gear change is more positive ispecially from 1st to 2nd
0-60 is quicker getting from 10kmh-30kmh the engine and turbo don't gasp for air anymore and you can hear a nice additional grunt from the engine aswell as the wistle of the turbo.
I'm not lying when I say its the best mod I've done to the car, I feel I have helped the engine by giving it the air it required.

In regards to mpg it has made a difference because I don't have to push the accelerater as far to get a response on take off due to the Green Cotton Performance filter being less restrictive.
But I'm not sure about figures yet to be honest, I was up in trim two weeks ago at souhan exhaust's got the Piper 3" stainless DPF back Duplex exhaust fitted aswell as an ECU remap to bring it from 90-120bhp so with this done and the filter fitted I'm currently getting a reading of 4.2litre's of diesel to 100km distance traveled.
So on a 50litre tank that would be 745.6 miles but I'm sure I could get better if I keep her tidy

Once again, great guide mate, well done ;)

Very detailed n informative.

Got me wanting to get one now

Just ordered one now, recommendation from Lenny is good enough for me.
The one to fit my car is a flat panel but i assume it's as easy to fit.

Nice one mate,
When it arrives maybe on Saturday or when you have the time, could you take some pictures of your fitting to the 1.8TDCi and either edit your post which is close to the 1.6TDCi fitting posts or create a new post on this thread with information on fitting to the 1.8TDCi to best assist others mate.

Lenny, again top work I'm going to order one. Im curious, why is the filter for my standard 1.6 (07 onwards) cost more than the TDCI models? Surely the TDCI models would get more better outcome?

[/quote]
Hi mate,
To be honest I don't know why their is a difference in pricing between the two filters Perhaps the 1.6 petrol was not as popular as the 1.6TDCi so the price of the Green Cotton filter for the petrol model would cost slightly more due to it being more likely to take up space in the warehouse.
Or maybe their is more design envolved in the 1.6 petrol induction filter
But the build quality is 100%
And all of the filters differ in shape, size and cost depending on model design fitment.

Lol wasn't your error mate it was mine, I just generally asked the one you needed as we both have 1.6 petrol, forgetting are mk's are different so would need different filters.

Nice one for linking the mk2 one for me as well though mate, confirmed the one I thought I'd needed ;)
Lenny
Update on my fuel econemy since fitting the piper exhaust, ecu performance remap and the Green Cotton induction filter I'm now getting 947Km on a 50 litre fill of diesel. Which translates to 588.43 miles on a 50 litre fill that was a mix of motorway driving aswell as some country roads and a 20 minute sprint on a closed road at 185km/h I tried my best not to do the last one but some times it difficult lol

just got mine for 53.98 :-) not much of a saving but still.

Yes i confirm i have the same air filter as u lenny even though it is a mk3

AV61-9601-AD is the part number for the ford filter currently installed

So you can extend the coverage to the 1.6tdci mk3 focus :-)

My filter arrived today, will look to fitting it tomorrow and post some details for changing a filter on a Mk2 1.8 tdci.
alkyz89
mine is the same cylindrical shape as lennys and im pretty sure its the same filter... wudnt have thought there would be any difference between diesel n petrol filters?? unless the size is slightly differrent, which i doubt as that would mean ford having to work harder lol
Stoney871
Filter for a 1.8 Mk2 TDCI is a flat panel one.
Stoney871
Got around to fitting my filter last night, what a doddle.
Remove engine cover, undo jubilee clip on pipe, undo six Torx screws around the filter housing, swap filters and reverse.
My filter had no need to line up any notches, it just slipped in and seated perfectly.
About half the thickness of the original filter and an exact fit.

Not sure if it was pshchological but the car seemed to be more responsive and revved easier.
Took it for a quich homeward thrash along the local A road and it was easier to get to legal ;) speeds.

Nice job Stoney,
You may notice more grunt from the exhaust in the coming weeks, or maybe not but I have noticed more growel in the lower revs in recent weeks I'm not sure if it was the DPF that's has been blown through by the increased induction or the bigger bore size after the dpf but the car has begun to sound better in the past 2-3 weeks.
Stoney871
I tell you one thing, it's not wishful thinking.
The car seems to have a lot less rolling resistance and appears to accelerate much smoother.
This added to my remap makes the car feel very slick.
Who needs an induction kit? Not me for sure.

I've gotten the same results with no rolling resistance on flat roads mate,
Used to need to push hard in first and quickly in to second to keep it moving but since fitting the filter its much smoother,
I've removed the slam plate yesterday to get it colour coded and to my surprise their is a snorkle that runs from the air box on the right side of the engine bay out to the front and across under the bonnet lock to the opposite side, I'll upload a picture when I can but its got a proper growell with the slam plae removed,
I may modify the snorkle section too.

Which would I need for my petrol 1.6 115bhp? I currently have a cheapo universal cone one.

Are these better than the K&N for example?

[/quote]
Not sure mate, may be the same filter as the 1.6TDCi because when I removed my stock filter, the air box had 3 part numbers on it two said diesel and one said petrol.
And they claim to be better than K&N due to their unique manufacture process their is no glue smeared on the cotton restricting flow.

I don't know for sure mate its just speculation from my mind but I do know for certain that if a company is making sales by offering 10% discount then they wouldn't stop the 10% off without other reason.
You could always email him directly mate then he could send you a paypal invoice or explain otherwise.

quick messege to all... Just spoke to ross and the offer still stands, he was just updating the website at the time.
I've ordered my air filter for the mk2.5 1.8ltr petrol... happy days :D

Just thought id put up a little update of my findings.

I've removed the slam panel to have it colour coded, and to my surprise their is a large snorkle pipe for the induction housing under the slam panel,
I always thought that the air was fed straight in to the airbox from the pipe directly in front of the induction box, I didn't realise it had such a distance to travel.
But the exhaust sounds better with the slam panel temperarely removed.
Which is causing me to consider removing the snorkle horizontal section to make it a straight feed but then if water got in I would be sorry lol.

purchased and fitted this filter.... no change in noise... no noticable change in power but when giving it some welly the gear change seems smoother... like when you change up a gear it doesnt struggle for air.... feels like there is no air restriction a car feels like it delivers power abit quicker... just my thoughts.
i have a 1.8 ltr petrol btw
