Don't forget to treat your old cotton filter and then you can resell it like new Lenny. Maybe you putting a whole in the air filter box impacted its life quicker too. I have to say since fitting mine a week or two after a bit of dust has built up its performing better than ever and sounds better too. You can really hear it woosh

I have it packaged up as is if anyone wants it for the price of shipping,

Its never been cleaned because i cant find anywhere in Ireland that supplies the induction filter cleaning kits, and aviation regulations wont ship a cleaning kit from the UK,

I agree,

Drilling the holes in the front of the stock airbox lid; did allow more contamination to enter speeding up the dirt level of the filter,

Although it did increase induction noise it didn't do much noticable difference in performance having done it.

Im gonna clean it up, stick a K&N +5bhp sticker on it and list on eBay,

Looks Good :)

That would be your MAF sensor (Mass Air Flow) adjusting to the increased flow from the newly fitted filter mate,

After upgrading induction filter, people disconnect battery for 10 minutes to reset the ECU,

This causes the MAF sensor to adjust immediately however the MAF sensor will self adjust in a couple of weeks without disconnecting battery as you have now found.

I personally don't recommend disconnecting the battery to people because it leads in to a whole different discussion regarding the security code for the stereo headunit etc.

Glad your happy with the filter upgrade mate,

Other mods you may consider on your 1.6 petrol are:

NGK Iridium Spark Plugs,

Oil Catch Tank,

Silicone Induction hose replacement,

Engine bay earth kit.

I think ill leave it black mate,

If i did have it colour coded id be spraying the K&N logo black again, would leave much silver,

I cant spray paint to save my life neither so would mean leaving it with body shop,

Probably could purchase a cleaning kit via ParcelMotel in Antrim but to be honest i didnt try too hard to import a cleaning kit,

The guys at Pri-Racing whom sent me the Green Cotton Performance filter tried to include a cleaning kit along with the filter,

But airport customs sent it back to Pri-Racing refusing to ship it with can inside,

So i just recieved the filter and i didnt try purchasing elsewhere,

Halfords sell the K&N cleaning kits but i havent priced them,

I just went for the 57s kit.

My Green filter which i ordered off the back of this thread arrived today. Couldn't fit it as it was raining so much earlier. Itching to fit it tomorrow and see if there's any difference. Already looks the part though.

Hi lenny, the recommended k&n drop in filter for my 2007 focus tdci 2.0 is e-2993, if i order a 57s perfomance air box, will it have a drop in filter that compatible with my focus?

Hi,

Sounds like it's using an open induction system which doesn't use the factory box, 

this type of kit tends to be model specific and as result quite expensive but here's a link to 1.6TDCi upgrades including hybrid turbos
