[quote name='Sid_WRC' post='23157' date='May 6 2009, 05:31 PM']hi, new to the forums i've desperately searched everywhere to find an induction kit for my 09 focus 1.6 zetec s
, i've even taken it to a few places who build custom kits from scratch and they refuse to touch it cos its got the MAF and some other sensor built into the stock airbox
wondering if you guys can help me out cheers
Just fitted one to my 1.6 TDCI without issue. Not sure how much difference there is between the air boxes? Got myself a quikshift Stainless filter. Left the airbox bottom in place and it fitted inside it as the normal filter is just a large cylinder filter instead of a panel. This left my MAF sensor fitted in the bottom part of the airbox with all the support is needs.
I can fit the airbox lid back on too.
I did have to remove the standard air ducts though, as it only pulled in ambient engine air. Just made a ram from behind the grill into the air box. I left the lid off mine so I can hear it more.
Funny thing with it being a TDCI, it doesn't give you the usual growl of a petrol engine with an induction, however I get the worlds loudest sucking noise and can here some sort of almost wastegate chatter between changes and when you come of the accelorator.
Definately feels more responsive pulling through the gears also.
Is there room in your existing air box to drop an aftermarket cone filter in??? worth a look.......
You can just remove the MAF sensor from the airbox, but you will need to construct some kind of support for it, and fit a filter that way?! K&N provide a Y shaped support bracked for use with their previous version.
