Fitting a POD filter

hey
i was wonderin if someone could tell me how to fit a pod filter to my EA? Like where does it sit, what type is best, how much will it cost etc. I searched the Kand N site and they had about a million different types, made my head spin!
Or does anyone have a better idea than a pod?

Any info appreciated

One or two threads already on this but tips I can suggest are to custom fabricate a pipe to lead down from your air box (get rid of it completely) to the front of the radiator and mount the pod in there somewhere. A cheapie will do the job of a K+N pod cause the restriction is not in the actual filter but more at the boxes mouthpiece. Use nice thick piping to duct all the way to the throttle body and guaranteed nice little gain is to be had. If the pod is in a place where it sux under the bonnet hot air your in a bit of trouble come summer months. My friends got a EB with a pod attached where the stock box was and after a trip to the servo and back a friggin escort dragged him off and slaughtered him (outside temp was bout 28degrees cel) We modded the box to be infront of the radiator and needless to say no more escorts or Bommodore 6's could take him.

Re: Fitting a POD filter

i'm interested in how the pipe is run in front of the radiator also? my pod is just under the hood where the airbox usually sits. i'm a bit worried with the warmer weather coming up.

Not any faster? What about smooth changing etc etc. The benefits are not just to make it go faster but to keep air flow up to match the already rich fuel mixture. I believe you can pipe around the radiator XE-XF with heaps of room but E series to A it gets a bit tricky. Look for your plastic guard under the car and u may need to cut it to get the pipe through - check your clearnace from the ground (you don't wanna scrape it on speed humps!)

Agreed. This thread is about gross misinformation.
