The COBB Ford Focus ST/RS Carbon Fiber Intake is a great way to dress up your engine bay and increase performance. The gloss finish over a bold 3K Carbon Fiber Weave on the intake piping is coupled with a matching air box lid. Which is accented by a brushed aluminum COBB badge. Included is a pre-oiled, dual cone, filter to increase airflow and amplify that great turbo sound. This intake is a complete factory repalcement all the way to the turbo and is compatible with the original factory tune and all available COBB OTS maps.
Fitment verified for left-hand drive vehicles only.
Is there ever a bad time for Carbon Fiber parts?The COBB Ford Carbon Fiber Intake frees up airflow and adds a level of refinement under the hood of your Focus ST/RS without any compromises!

Great quality and fitment!I had a Cobb intake on my car before this one, so it was quite easy to install. The biggest difference though, other than the carbon baller look, is how much more you can hear the turbo.
I would say it is about 25% louder in cabin. Not sure if it is just the resonance of the carbon tubes, but I love the sound.
Quality is Cobb. Never been let down by them. Still am not. The added touches of the SF Intake plaque is great.

Limited driving review:
The FORD CARBON FIBER INTAKE SYSTEM FOCUS RS 2016-201[U]8[/U] <--fixed that for you COBB... I'll just call it the CFI.
The intake looks amazing. I'm not a fan of carbon fiber EVERYTHING, but I do like the look.
Weight: The intake tube is featherweight, especially when compared to the stock tubes. The same goes for the intake lid. Overall the system saves around 3 lbs compared to the stock intake with a K&N filter. I would imagine very few people are looking into the CFI for the weight reduction anyway!
Fit: Overall the fit was good. I didn't run into any issues with clearance or having to make adjustments.
Finish: I expected it to have some minor flaws. But it really didn't. The packaging held up very well and I didn't see any scratches or chips in the tube or the cover. I haven't noticed any bunched up areas. The tube has seams, which are expected. Could they have been hidden better? Maybe, but I couldn't do better. The elbow coupler should have a notch to match up with the stock plastic elbow. If anything in the finish bothers me it is the hose clamps. They look cheap, and the screw is gold. All of the clamps are non-marring and don't have to hold boost, so I suppose they will do (for now).
Sound: To me it sounds exactly like the Mishimoto intake on start up. Louder than stock, with more intake and turbo noise. When you get on the gas it sounds awesome. It gets the "whistle" from the resonator. I'll be ordering a sound suppression chamber.
Performance: \No butt dyno. \ I'll wait until I have driven it for a few weeks to see if I "feel" like anything is better or worse.
Here is the video for now. Cold start comparison, Stock with K&N versus COBB CFI

Speechless!!!!bought to replace the Mishimoto intake I had. Cobb, another amazing product. The fit is spot on and super easy to install. The finish is absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommend this intake to everyone. Well worth the cost.
