Steeda is your best bet at this point.

I have an Injen CAI made for the 2010 Ford Fusion Sport. Works like a charm! Steeda short ram looks good too!

On most Ford products from '08 and up, a CAI kit requires a re-tune.

There isn't one.  If there was, it probably wouldn't be legal in CA anyway.

why in the world would a CAI be illegal or require a retune? That makes absolutely no sense.

Are you aware of the California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations and EO#s?  A CAI has to have a CARB EO# to be legal in CA.

 

 

C.A.R.B. and the Aftermarket

Modifying or tampering with a vehicle's engine can reduce the functionality of its emission controls. As such, California and CARB have established an anti-tampering law, Vehicle Code Section 27156 (VC 27156). The act of adding any aftermarket part, including a cold air intake, is considered an act of tampering with a smog-controlled engine. In other words, you could be breaking California law by adding an aftermarket cold air intake onto their vehicle, unless that cold air intake has received a CARB-issued exemption.

CARB Certification

Getting an aftermarket engine part to meet CARB certification is a costly and lengthy process. An aftermarket product that has been CARB-certified has been thoroughly evaluated and tested to prove that it is reliable and won't increase a vehicle's harmful emissions. CARB-certified aftermarket products will have a sticker or badge with a number detailing its Executive Order (EO) exemption status. This EO number will show smog control technicians, members of law enforcement and others that the part does not violate VC 27156.

 K&N website:

 

K&N Intake Kits, Are They Street Legal?

Every kit we sell is street legal in most states. California and other states that have adopted California emission standards require an intake system to be inspected by the California Air Resources Board (CARB). If the system meets the regulatory requirements, CARB will issue an Executive Order (EO) number. This number, when referenced, will inform a smog inspector that the intake system does not cause the vehicle to be in violation of state emissions standards. EO numbers are assigned for a specific part number on a specific vehicle. When a new year of the vehicle is released, a resubmission to CARB is required. The time required to go through the regulatory process can be lengthy and there is no guarantee the system will be found acceptable for each successive vehicle model year.

With the exception of our 57i Series, our intake systems intended for street use are submitted to CARB for each model year. Intakes with EO numbers means the product meets CARB emission standards ONLY for the vehicle model years cited. Generally, the EO will not cover current year vehicles due to the lengthy regulatory review process. If a model year is not cited on the EO, the part is not legal for sale or use for that specific model year in California and other states that have adopted California emission standards.

To determine if an intake kit is CARB exempt for the applications listed, use our Application Search Page to find available intakes for your vehicle then select the part number. A product detail screen will open indicating the CARB exemption status for the intake.

States that have adopted California emission standards include: Arizona, California, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington.
