    Focus RS will be the new hot hatch?

    Agree - I'd even bet it'll get FWD. But why manual only? Ford have used the Getrag 6DCT450: http://www.getrag.com/de/products/powershift/powershift.html It takes up to 450 Nm of torque which is sufficient for the RS.

    NEW OE intake for TSI/EA888

    Many aftermarket intakes are known to plunder power and cause several other issues. Somtimes better to go with OE parts. There's a "hot climate" intake/filter enclosure, that can be easily adapted to the TSI/EA888 engine (late Mk.V GTI, all Mk.VI GTI)...
