One of my friends has an EF Falcon and said he's getting his air filter and intake system modified and some of it removed and is going to have two pod filters and get around 20kW extra.
I'm not too sure about engines but my brother is looking for a performance upgrade but not something too expensive like a super/turbocharger.
What we want to know is do you recommend this as a performance upgrade, how much extra power would we get and overall, is it worth it.
Mate 20kw from a pod filter setup?
Ive been using Pods for 10 years, yes he should get a noticable improvement, but 20kw is just dreaming(unless the car is already turbo or sumthing?).
You should get a fuel economy improvement, and a bit more squirt.
my mate put a pod on his ef fairmont...got a touch extra power but noticed the extra 'noise' too when giving it to it hard. think its more hype than a performance gain to be honest. maybe a set of extractors and a good flow through exhaust with the pod you might find the extra power worth it.

20kw is extremely optimistic,but i have heard of a 5kw increase buy replacing the plastic intake pipe from airbox to TB with a 2.5-3" stainless pipe.Again optimistic figures.Just remember that if its making alot of induction noise it doesn't necessarily means its making power,ever looked at a four cylinder intake pipe and noticed expansion chambers of the pipe,they're there to reduce inducion noise,removing them doesn't increase power just noise.Choose modifications that are known for giving better performance.Good luck but do some research before putting power figures on here or these guys will just pay you out.
