Pod filters generally do nothing other than suck hot air. Pure wank factor, you're better off getting a decent panel filter, unless you make some sort of heat shield.

Re: pod air fillter's on std 6?

yeah, u need it set up well to really make the most of it's abilities. some people have aftermarket airboxes for the pods with dual intakes or like chicken said, have a heat shield.

Yeah, all go no show, good for 'noise factor'. That's about it.

Re: pod air fillter's on std 6?

Yeh sound faster and impresses your mates is a fair comment.

Its sort of like that 6" oval chrome exhuast tip I just had to get.

The pods do actually have a bigger surface area than the panel but suck hot air and cold air is more useful than any minor difference in flow.

A pod in the airbox perhaps may be OK but most people find an EF airbox lid with a tickford snorkel and a K&N panel filter is the tried and true combo that works for real. Cold air and improved flow.

It doesn't sound faster or impress your mates though.

Re: pod air fillter's on std 6?

Air filters are all much of a muchness really. I am of the belief that a good panel setup will do a lot better than a pod, however I don't fully discount the abilities of the pods as a lot of people who are running Turbos etc use them, and they are even part of some Jim Mock DEV kits.

The main issue with ANY air filter/induction system, regardless of shape or whether it's a snorkel and box setup or not, is what air is it going to be getting in there? The goal should always be to get the coldest air possible in there, thus some guys who have pods fitted (Rollin is one I can think of), have made up heatshields to stop the hot air from the bay being sucked right back into the engine. How you shield and set it all up is up to you.

However, if you dont want to be stuffing around with making heatshields etc, the standard snorkel+box setup is usually sufficient. I know some guys have added extra piping to their airbox to get more air in there (I think Casper has run a pipe from his airbox to behind his headlight so it gets air from there, he said it made a bit of difference), but essentially how you go about it is up to you, and you can't really expect 'x result from x setup'. The results on every car will be different.

But yeah, as long as you're aiming (and getting) as much cold air in there as possible, you should be right.

Just my 2c, apologies if I've gotten anything wrong.

You can setup the pod inside the EF airbox with a $10 part from holden. The au snorkel also does wonders.

I found the pod filter did nothing for performance but made the car a hell of a lot louder. It roars now when you floor it as opposed to having the airbox.
