Right out of the box, the 2016-2017 Focus RS is a performance driven hot hatch with a very well designed intake system. However, cp-e decided that they could improve upon the factory setup. The result is this cp-e Black Alpha Cold Air Intake Kit

- 3” Mandrel Bent Aluminum Turbo Inlet Tube
- Black Powder Coat Finish
- Plexiglass Top Cover
- Air Box Constructed from 18 Gauge Stainless Steel

The key feature of the Alpha Cold Air Intakes improved design is the CNC-lathed aluminum velocity stack bellmouth. This bellmouth compresses the air that flows through the 4” air filter smoothly down to the 3” mandrel bent aluminum turbo inlet tube to reduce loss of energy. This helps to keep high airflow speeds through the inlet tube. The Alpha intake system comes in a satin black powder coat finish that will look great in the RS’s engine bay. The 3” inlet tube features a CNC-lathed port for the PCV system, a CNC-milled MAP bung and support brackets that are laser cut.
The Alpha intake air box is laser-cut and CNC-bent from 18-gauge stainless steel that provides a strong and durable design. The stainless steel design is more resistant to long-term corrosion and will remain cool even when the box itself heats up. The box will use both of the original fresh air ducts and will also suck up cool fresh air from your wheel well. This air box also features a clear, plexiglass window to help enclose your filter away from any heat as well as provide easy access to the filter for any maintenance. The air filter itself is specifically crafted by cp-e to provide the best free-flowing air flow your Focus RS can experience.
