Does anyone know of a company building a cold air induction system for the 2021 Bronco Sport 1.5 Dragon.

Do you think the stock system is restrictive?
Not trying to be snarky but over the years I've done a few intake upgrades and the only measurable difference has been intake noise. When paired with other engine upgrades they begin to matter.

Fossil,
Yes I do...the box that most manufactures provide are just allowing air to be sucked in through a flat filter...which is also limited by the 2” x 5” opening at the front of vehicle Feeding the box. Most aftermarket cold air systems use a round filter maximizing the amount of air taken in. I am an old tractor puller who had engines that ran on nitro alcohol. Trust me...the more air you can get to an engine means more torque and HP. I use them on my twin turbo F150, my Mustang, and our Fiesta. All of them have about a 15% increase in HP and fuel mileage. ITG Maxogen makes one for Fiesta I3. It appears it might work. With the1.5dragon at 185 HP...a good cold air system would take it to about 200. That would help a lot. Thanks for your comments.

Now you just sound like a parts salesman. 15% with a CAI, I call bs.

I'll remind you of my last comment "When paired with other engine upgrades they begin to matter. "

If it gave 15% better mpgs it would come like that from the factory.
As an air filter becomes dirty the throttle body compensates. So if you open things up the ECU will throttle back to maintain the correct air fuel mixture.
They got a good ECU flash out for the 2.0 Liter I hear... It's in this forum.
I suspect one will come for the Dragon,
