The 2012 Focus was a big step for Ford, making the U.S. version of the Focus a sharper machine and equating it with the U.K version. The Ford Focus has brought the style and handling of the European version to the United States. The Focus was almost completely redesigned with the new era, and this means new engines, new body and a new DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission). All these changes add up to a superbly responsive car that is now a possible competitor to vehicles thought to be in a higher category.
Additional power and acceleration can be realized on 2012 Ford Focus models with 2.0 liter engines with a K&N Typhoon air intake system, part number 69-3517TS. This air intake has an estimated gain of 9.97 horsepower and 10.44 lb-ft. of torque at 5872 RPM on the 2012 model.
The 69-3517TS intake system includes a silver colored powder coated air intake tube to streamline airflow, heat shield and K&N filter part number RC-5284, all designed to help minimize restriction and allow your motor to breathe easier. The air filter is washable and reusable and never needs to be replaced. It is made to perform for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed depending on driving conditions. The 69-3517TS comes with simple installation instructions and all necessary installation parts and it is designed to install using just a few common hand tools in about 90 minutes or less.
The 69-3517TS intake system is specifically designed for and tested on the 2012 Ford Focus with the 2.0 liter engine. It follows the basic idea that K&N was founded upon: less restriction equals more power. It was developed with all of the attention to detail and consistent testing that you have come to expect from K&N. This air intake provides outstanding engine protection and it is covered by K&N’s Million Mile Limited Warranty, showing the utmost confidence in quality and performance.
Part number 69-3517TS was designed for 2012 Ford Focus models with 2.0L engine.
