hey all has any used or useing a pod fillter on there late model car. i got an au2 and have put one on for a while for something to do and some fun, it wont be staying on for ever ill change it back to stock soon, my mate just had one lieing around. it sounds tuff but not sure if it actully does any thing or good. any coments or ideas on this subject?
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
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
Same car............new lease on life

thanks for the input guys keep it comeing. yeah im going to be putting a k&n panel when i get the money and more cold air to it. it was just a cheap 8dollar filter my mate had lieing around. and we were drunk silly and wamted to see what it would do.
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!!!
