The ULITMATE Tapered Intake Manifold for the Focus RS 2009 Mk2 and ST225.
The Focus RS mk2 and Focus ST225 / Volvo inlet manifold design has been available from many suppliers for quite some time.
So why have Pumaspeed decided to enter the market and design a new unit?
After looking at many of the designs we determined that some flowed well but could look better. Alternatively some looked beautiful but lacked the desired balanced flow of a true flow of a fully balanced Tapered design and others just looked like building bricks and shouldn't grace the under bonnet of any car let alone a Ford RS.
Elevate your car with the new Inlet from Pumaspeed.
After many conversations with engineers around the globe, our design team knew that only a fully tapered design with a cosmetic twist could really do the job for the Focus / Volvo owner, giving that all important mix of Power, Beauty and Reliability.
It takes a lot of time in research and development to make a fully tapered Inlet work This new Pumaspeed Intake manifold plenum is the product of this extensive R+D period where no effort was spared and no compromise taken. There were a total of 37 differing designs which resulted in a totally balanced flowing inlet that delivered 6% more intake charge than the nearest competition. More importantly it distributed the flow evenly to all 5 cylinders across the whole rev range of the 5 cylinder Volvo engine in the New Mk2 Focus RS and Focus ST 225.
How easy is it to fit ?
Very simple is the quick answer, all the standard connection points and joints are retained so it is as simple as swapping the original out and refitting it. No injectors need to be removed.
Why does it cost so little ?
Quality of the products pumaspeed supply around the globe are very important, we provide the best at the best price we can.
When we make an item, we make many hundreds and our buying power in the Ford Tuning industry is second to none. When you buy direct from the manufacturer you save, in this case you are saving up to 30% and gaining a 6% increase in added air flow.
SO HAVE PUMSAPEED CREATED THE ULTIMATE TAPED INTAKE MANIFOLD FOR THE FOCUS RS AND ST 225 ??
THE MECHANICS BELIEVE SO, OUR TESTING AND DESIGN DEPARTMENT BELIEVE IT TOO !
