Shomare and I were browsing around the 2012 SEMA show about a month ago, and we stumbled a crossed The Green Filter. What we were so impressed with, was the air flow that the filter had, versus other brands. So I filmed a short 15 second product demonstration. I knew that I would be getting one of these filters for my car as soon as I saw this, and I wanted to share with everyone. Pay attention to the little ball..
So, after the demonstration I asked what the filter was for the Focus ST.
Filter Number: 7159

So The Green Filter is a cone filter, and it is steel mesh construction. Since installed I love it. The sound is great! You can hear the turbo, and there is a very nice whoosh sound when the air flow is sucked, then stopped. It makes the engine a little lower, and the exhaust a little louder. It really sounds cool when you are "on" the car.
There is no way for me to determine if the filter makes the car faster or not. I don't feel a difference, the only way is to dyno. Every filter says that they increase mileage, and power. Someone needs to test this.
I have not seen a decrease is mileage, if anything a modest increase. But I don't have any data to back that up. I know my car doesn't get worse mileage. In the past, other cars I have got worse mileage with a filter. This is a great enhancement to the car, without doing a complete Cold Air Intake.
Take 4 bolt screws out.
Pop the cover off
Pop the filter out. May take a bit a of work.
Install by slipping the filter over the hose intake, with the clamp. Do not over tighten clamp, or the filter will pop off. Just get a firm grip and it will not go anywhere. Mine has been installed for a month with no problems.
Reinstall cover and enjoy!
