    Good move. The first time you get on it in third gear you will stress your smile muscles! And the intake does allow more sound. Have you deleted the Sound Symposer yet?

    I did the intercooler, induction hose and complete turbo hose upgrade along with the quick shift at the same time as the mp215. ...As long as the air box is out, I highly recommend having the Quick Shift done at the same time, as it has to come out anyway to get that done. .. If there were only going to be two mods done to the car those two would be the RMM and the Quick Shift. The latter makes a difference every time you drive. Every time you shift, not just for the shorter throw, but for the better feel.

    Suggest getting an RMM as well the MP215 opens the torque on 1st and 2nd. The RMM will help transfer power to wheels.

    I just installed a COBB RMM and a Fswerks shifter. I love them both. The only other mod is a K&N panel filter.

    I have not deleted the sound symposer. For now I like the way it sounds. What is the benefit to deleting it?

    If you like it keep it! It has no effect on anything other than sound, I prefer to hear my engine not a phony engine sound. But it is totally inert as to performance. Some like it some don't. While I was doing the MP215 and OCC I just went ahead and deleted it in hopes of a new exhaust system sound soon. It will probably mask any intake sounds with the MP215 kit. After about a week it started bugging me that I was listening to a rubber diaphragm instead of my engine. This new thing of fake engine sounds piped into performance cars is just strange to me. I enjoy listening to my car when doing spirited driving. And when not I like my audio so deleting the Symposer was a need for me. No reason to change it other than personal preference.

    You did well is asking for advice, you will find Mountune to be a great company to deal with. Their connections with Ford insured the MP215 would only do good things for your car. I have much more power (torque), increased fuel efficiency and a worry free warranty. If you have not yet installed an OCC do so. Look at the various threads for reviews on the different ones available. For various reasons, location and easy drain mainly I chose the Damon. All are good stuff for our D.I. engines. Wrench on!

    I thought it just piped in throttlebody and intake sound from the engine. Maybe when the new intake is fitted I will delete it to hear more of that instead of the enhanced engine noise.

    I will look into getting a OCC. Where do they plum into? Would it affect my warranty at all?

    Some guy removed his, and found out that the mod had increased his boost.

    I've got the kit sitting in the garage, as I haven't gotten around to buying a pair of really long nose pliers to remove the clips around the symposer.

    Only benefit of Sound Symposer is the phony engine sound disappears! Easy to do with a kit or just a BOV (Block Off Plug).

    As to the OCC it is connected in the PCV lines, no warranty issues as long as it does not cause a problem you are OK, it is not an active device, it just condenses the oil vapors to a liquid in an attempt to keep your valves clean. No difference as changing all of your hoses to braided or color types. It does not affect the engine's performance or emissions. Damonds is plug and play with factory connections. Others may also be, I used the Damond for several reasons, installation was about 45 minutes and easy. They made me one with yellow hoses as a special request and I love the ease of emptying their OCC....... so I am somewhat prejudiced. But special care from a vendor should be praised. Lots of threads on the +/- of all of them. Get one!

    I'm really happy with mine. The warranty issue was a major concern to me, as this is my only car; but as you've mentioned, the price tag...

    Then a friend pointed out that Mountune is 20 minutes from my house, and offers free installation. So I had to.
