Wink Mounted My Pod... Not Under the bonnet! (IMAGES FIXED)

Well I have come up with a way that you can have constant cold air with out mounting a pod filter under the bonnet. I know all of you out there are going to say "But its going to get wet." But no its not and heres how...

I have mounted the pod under where the airbox would be and snuggled in behind the bumper... And it will not get wet or get mud on it from what the tyre flicks up because I have made an alluminium shield which protects it from under and behind where the tyre may flick up water/mud etc.

Here are some pics! Tell me what you think!

Under Bonnet:


Behind Bumper:


And Closer:


Undernieth:

Yeah the pics sound good. But what you are describing is the only decent way to get cold air that I am familiar with. The technique has been employed by quite a few members, and I plan to do it myself at some stage.

Re: Mounted My Pod... Not Under the bonnet!

Ah yeah not bad.

The difference is that the technique I was talking about blocks off the rear of the front bumper, and doesn't have the pod so close to the front of the bumper.

It's an original way of doing it - good stuff!

Re: Mounted My Pod... Not Under the bonnet!

looks good but be carefull at the car wash washing the wheel arches out.
was it easy to do and did you need many extra materials or just what was in the car at the time?

Re: Mounted My Pod... Not Under the bonnet!

Thanks psycho chicken, you beat me to it!

The only extra materials I needed was another rubber intake pipe and some aluminium for the shield! Did it in my hour break from work today so it really only took 40mins to do all of it and that made it fairly easy.

Ya I will b carfull wen washing my wheels except Im getttin 17''s soon so ill clean them with a toothbrush. lol.

Re: Mounted My Pod... Not Under the bonnet!

Looks quite effective. How is the aluminium held in place? I'd like to do something similar. Have you noticed a big difference?
