Re: pod fillters

they arnt too bad considering they are cheap and they get more surfac area to suck air in... but unless done properly they tend to suck more hot air in than anything else unless u got it set up so its sheilded from hot air from the motor...
if u got it sheilded or it is somewhere that it is going to suck cold air then leave it.. if its just sittin in your engine bay sucking hot air better to go back to the paper filter and standard box i reckon

Re: pod fillters

i put a pod filter on in my ea (no heat shield) and it did nothing (noise isnt counted as anything....)

im sure with a shield it might do SOMETHING

Minor difference. Cops find them a great excuse for a canary though.

Re: pod fillters

they work real well when they have a shield around them and a decent air duct leading to the pod, the std air box with a k&n filter and decent ducting to the box will prob make as much power as the pod

Re: pod fillters

fair enough. I had a panel K&N, then when i put on the JMM intake(pod in air box) got an extra couple of Kw's on the dyno(did B4 and after) , so a correct pod setup is the way to go me thinks.

Re: pod fillters

I agree, only concern is the drawing of hot air into the pod...I used to have a BMC Carbon Dynamic Airbox, looks great, sounds fantastic, and works well. Now, I'm running a K&N filter straight through a 4" intake to the turbocharger...works a treat!!!
