FSWERKS Green Filter Cool-Flo Plus Air Intake System - Ford Focus ST 2013-2018SKU: FS018GB
The FSWERKS Cool-Flo Plus air intake system is our top of the line kit for the Focus ST. It eliminates the factory airbox to allow for maximum airflow from all angles, yet still provides a barrier from engine heat. We achieve this by utilizing our powdercoated aluminum heat shield, which has a rubber hood seal that meets up with the hood when it closes. To further maximize airflow our heat shield incorporates a larger 3" inlet where our high performance air filter connects compared to the factory 2.75" inlet. The Cool-Flo Plus then takes it a step further adding our powdercoated 3" mandrel bent aluminum turbo inlet tube to the system, making this a true 3" air intake system from the air filter to the turbo. Features laser cut brackets and tig welded construction.
The factory airbox was designed, in part, to be quiet to meet the needs of the general population. Once the airbox and turbo inlet tube are replaced with the Cool-Flo Plus air intake system a much more aggressive and sporty engine note will be present. For the majority of auto enthusiasts, the resulting sounds of the turbo spooling and diverter valve whooshing are as appreciated as the added horsepower and torque. We include all of the necessary hardware and instructions for installation. Lifetime Warranty.
Note: A noticeable increase of induction noise is created with all open filter air intake kits like the FS018 series intakes. Only the ITG filter part#15BH-262 or a 7159 Green Filter with cap in the stock air box will maintain OEM like sound levels.

There’s such a focus (no pun intended) on exhaust note that the sweet sweet sounds of intake noise is often ignored; the symphony of whooshes and growls make me want to take the long way home. Butt dyno says there’s a little more oomph, especially higher up in the rev range (paired with an AccessPort and the OTS 91 tune). Intake temps while in motion generally only about 5-10 degrees above ambient. Installation was reasonably easy (~1 hr) and instructions simple to follow. Wishing I had gotten this sooner and not after 170K miles.
Great item. Looks bad ass and sounds much better. The tube you replace from factory is so much lighter. The green filter look sexy on yellow but also adds that sound and turbo noise you are looking for. Install pretty straight forward the pics that they send along with the txt instructions are on point. 100×better then IKEA lol. Service and delivery were fast. Great overall experience. If you have an St you need this. Dont waste time with other companies. Better pricing product and sound.
Bought from CFM and very happy with this Intake... Was pretty easy install, and really love the sound of the vehicle since I've put it on, really gave little more pep. Thanks for a great product
So far the CAI is doing what I needed it to do and that is reduce the odd acoustics I was getting with my Injen CAI.
Not too difficult to install, fits nicely
Sounds amazing - bought it used after cobb sent me sliced couplers and then their support acted like it was my fault. I also had a mazdaspeed3 and enjoyed the access port until they decided their customers needed to pay an additional 200 dollars to continue using their software then obsoleted my current software so it'd only run on windows vista. What a crap company. UNLIKE FSWERKS. I will be buying from them again in the future. do NOT give Cobb your business.
Got the intake installed tonight. Sounds amazing. Really lets your turbo breathe. Excited to start seeing the great results. Sounds awesome, looks awesome, and my car loves it. Definitely worth the price, quality materials. Definitely recommend.
pretty good fitment, but right when I went to turn the car on, I have zero power and now the car is practically dead. wont start, throws a check engine light, etc. not too pleased because now I'm stuck
Hi Tucker, most likely you forgot to reconnect the engine ecu ground strap under the intake shield. This will cause the car not to start or run. Thank you
Top notch quality and perfect fitment, had zero issues installing the intake, short shift plate, or the turbosmart dual port BOV. Would 100 % recommend and certainly will be ordering a ton more from fswerks. Thank you
I have a fully built motor making over 500whp, Quality intake. Best on the market hands down.
I was skeptical about this intake as it was too much money. I was leaning more towards the COBB. Words of advise don't think about just buy it! The sound is amazing! Breaths like a hurricane! You can really hear the turbo now!
Install was super easy with the provided instructions aside from one part that was in a tight area. Other than that, relatively simple with the right tools and the thing absolutely bangs once it's in. Love the sound of it and can't stop turning heads on the street. Definitely recommend.
Great fit and quality. FSwerks is the only place I'll order from since 2004
Great instructions, and sounds amazing. Took about 45 minutes and it is probably the easiest installation possible. Worth the money. Thanks FSWERKS!
Nice build quality. Standard install. Love the look and sound of final product.
A little tricky to install, especially around the turbo inlet area, but can be done with enough patience and the right tools. Overall it produces a great sound that is nowhere near the stock intake. Would highly recommend this on the noise alone .... oh ... it looks pretty damn awesome to!!
New to modding to cars, but just installed this on my 2015 Focus ST and it sounds amazing! Well worth the price, not only for the performance, but the sound alone. It's a beautiful thing hearing the turbo spool up along with the added intake sound. Still takes advantage of the stock snorkel which is a plus. Highly recommended!
I live on the east coast and engine gets pretty dirty, but I got this intake system with the optional Outerwears pre-filter and I love it... sounds great now, and the pre-filter keeps the filter nice and easy to clean.. I recommend both, you wont regret it.
This is at the top of list for intake. Injen intake does not take advantage of stock snorkel this intake does. Everyone is amazed how much it spools.
I had a friend recommend FS Werks to me and I decided to purchased this CAI, my friend who is a tech for Ford installed it on my 2014 ST. The sound difference and the air flow is definitely noticeable, I almost bought the air box version, but I am glad I decided to spend the extra money and got the higher end version with the silver powdercoat it was totally worth it! I did sand it down the intake tube and sprayed it a metallic red for my personal look and it looks amazing! FS Werks nailed it perfectly, it fits in engine bay nicely and looks great! I would highly recommend this product to anyone who was considering on getting a CAI for their Focus ST. This was my first time using FS Werks and I would definitely buy more of their products, high quality! :thumbsup:
