I've had this intake installed for a month and so far it's been exactly what I wanted. To start off, I'm using this on my N/A '12 Focus Hatchback. This intake appealed to me because the design is very intuitive to work with the factory air box which is, in essence, a cold air system in and of itself and I'm not dropping a huge chunk of change on an aftermarket kit. The scoop fits perfectly behind the bumper, coming down right in front of the air-dam and installation was easy even considering taking the front bumper off. Performance-wise, this does exactly what I'd expect it to; I can feel a slight increase in throttle response and it does feel like the power curve has smoothed out throughout the power band. As for induction noise, it really opens up with the throttle; you can catch a hint of it at lower RPMs with a fair amount of load (quick starts, up hill throttle) but once you open it up you can really hear it. I'm very pleased.
