Pod Filter In EA Falcon

I just installed my pod filter today but I had trouble finding an adaptor for my EA everytime I asked at the auto stores the idoit's kept giving me adaptor's for the EF/EL and onwards that bolt on in four places and I had to point out on the packet's "No you givin me the wrong type I said EA/EB or ED only there's nothing to bolt onto it's just tubing" they kept going " it has to fit mate it says so in the book" I said " mate if you knew what the setup's looked like you would know there totally different what your giving me is an adaptor to fit an air meter which is for the EF/EL and onwards were as the EA/EB & ED's don't have them on the intake tube at all " I even showed one guy so he could see the huge difference.

After all that crap was told then there is no adaptor for that model then which pissed me off so I started looking at the pod adaptors to see if there was one I could use and YES I found one it's for a Holden Commodore VN to VS just perfect for the job and below is it fitted into my EA Falcon.







What I plan to do now is to close the pod filter from the engine bay like a heat sheild if anyone has made one already please post your pics of it thanks.

Re: Pod Filter In EA Falcon

You shouldnt need an adapter at all,the pipe should fit on the pod no problems.all the pods ive had dont need and adapter.

Re: Pod Filter In EA Falcon

hi
it does work well. unfortinatly it still gets some hot air but not enough to notice a performance drop..
i dont have the pod on at the moment as i was pulled over in the christmas break and defected for the pod. but i will be puting it back on . just got to make a box to enclose it.....
