Re: POD Air Filter

Don't waste your time if you haven't got a proper Custom Air Intake made up. If you choose not to go that extra length of making a CAI, just buy a quality panel filter (K&N for example).

Re: POD Air Filter

I'll have to agree with Xrated. I put a pod filter on my EA and just left in the hot engine bay. All I got from it was a slightly better engine noise. So get a K&N panel filter. but if your going to made up proper Ccstom air intake then go for the pod filter...

Re: POD Air Filter

Re: POD Air Filter

Pod filter in my EA with EF airbox (pod lived in airbox) with 3in piping to factory scoop bit on Radiator (slighly modded with a hacksaw) saw a noticeable difference in both power and economy (only slight)

one thing it did do was allow the thing to rev much better. And it sounded bloody horn (especially when i left the lid off....occasionally would sacrifice the grunt for the sound)

Am undecided what to do with my EL. Wanna keep it looking factory.

...mmm clevo...

Re: POD Air Filter

I had a Simota Pod filter on my old EL XR6 and all it did was make it sound abit better, from idle it had a notciable "sucking" sound and from around 3k to redline it sounded shit hot. No power increase was evident and I knew there wouldn't be I just put it on for the sound.
