One of the first upgrades you should do to your vehicle, if you're looking for improved performance, is a nice intake. So today we're going to be installing this Steeda Cold Air Intake on our 2013 Focus ST. This Steeda cold Air Intake is designed to fit your 2013 to '18 Focus ST. it features a high-flow silicone intake tube with a velocity stack and a pre-oiled air filter protected by a polyethylene heat shield. It'll look great under the hood, as well as helping the Focus breathe and sound better, and the best part is you don't even need to tune.
Tools you'll need for this installation:
A T-30 Torx bit.
And a Phillips Screwdriver.
Okay, this intake's pretty simple to install, and as you can see, this factory intake tube right here is extremely ugly so we've got to get this thing out of here. First thing we're going to do is remove the engine cover. Loosen this hose clamp right here, it's on the back side of this intake tube, it's an 8-millimeter. Unplug the intake sensor. Undo the strap on the air scoops. Lift up on the airbox to dislocate it from its rubber grommets. Remove the rubber tube. Get this out of the way so we don't break it. And remove the airbox. This piece of the air inlet can also be removed. Just simply pulls off.
Remove the 8-millimeter screws securing the intake sensor, then gently twist it and remove it. Install the intake sensor onto your Steeda airbox, and secure it with the provided bolt and nut. Install the mounting bracket onto the airbox. Install the velocity stack onto the air filter. Tighten up the hose clamp, and install this into the airbox. Install the filter, and secure the velocity stack with the provided bolts.
Next we're going to install this barb fitting. Install the bolt through the bottom of the airbox. Put two washers on there, and thread on the barb. The provided rubber trim gets installed around the airbox next.
Install the silicone hose onto the turbo inlet pipe with the two hose clamps. Remove the hood latch cable from the latch. Drop the airbox in place. Get it seated onto its grommet. Attach the turbo inlet pipe. Tighten your hose clamps. Secure the airbox to the core support with the provided screw, and then tighten it with a T-30 Torx bit. Run the hood latch cable through the hole in the airbox, and reattach it to the latch. Reattach this connector, and also your intake sensor, and your installation's finished.
Okay, we got our Steeda Cold Air Intake installed. It's looking a lot better under the hood of this Focus. The blue filter adds a nice touch, and we got rid of that ugly discolored hose right here. It's going to help this thing breathe a whole lot better, and installation really wasn't too bad, it's probably only going to take you about an hour, and before you know it you'll be heading down the road.
