Re: pod filter

it is an air filter in the shape of a 'pod', the traditional filters for our cars are panel filters that are fittet inside a box, the pod filter can be put inside a box or standalone connected to the intake pipe.

Re: pod filter

Rather than having a flat "panel" air filter which is situated in the airbox, a pod is a cylindrical or cone shaped air filter which supposedly allows the engine to suck the air in easier due to its larger surface area relative to is size, creating less restriction of air flow. Due to it not needing to be housed in an airbox (although legally it must be i think?) it can allow the filter to be relocated to a place where it can recieve more air flow, or colder air. Basically this all adds up to letting the engine create more power. A good quality panel filter however can have quite good results also. If anyone has pictures to help explain POD/PANEL, then please post them up.

Re: pod filter

Well if you have a CFI engine then you would have a tennis racket type filter case.
and no the airfilter will go into the tennis racket air filter case and if you wanna get a panel filter then convert it MPFI :) then you can even use a pod filter to. :) and with a cfi i wouldnt bother puting in a Kn airfilter or simliar just a waste of money might as well convert the bugger.
