Keep the box chuck a K&N or BMC filter in there, get a better snorkel and maybe make your own CAI.

Yeah, panel filters are all you need, they will give you more than enough air. I have always suggested K&N, but the BMC ones are now suppose to flow a bit more.

Re: Pod Or Box???????????

I will be getting a BMC Panel filter for my XR6 and just upgrading the snorkel to the XR8 one. Basically the panel filters are very good these days and it really makes for an easy mod rather than messing with the pods.

Re: Pod Or Box???????????

another thing you could do which ive seen on a few cars going around is ciut a hole in the bottom of ur airbox run piping to a hole in your front bumper and stick a pod filter on the end of the just at the opening of your bumper and take out your panel filter. gives a really loud inducting sound and is sure to suck plenty of cold air into your engine as heeps of wind would cycle through as you drive

Re: Pod Or Box???????????

I have a K&N panelfilter in my airbox. What Ive done also is cut a hole thru the box and thru the inner guard and put a 4in flexipipe thru the holes, and faced the flexitube forward and cable-tied it to the body. I then siliconed the area inside the box where the pipe came thru so no air wouldnt escape.

One thing you will need to realise is that the EL's will have the abs box in the way. (mine is a series 1 EB non abs) I have seen it done still but you need to be careful.

That sounds like a reasonable setup Blueoval. Neat, descreet and a 4" hose would certainly bring in air. My question on this is where is the end of the hose? In the actual wheel arch? If so, how do you stop water and mud from being thrown up and into the opening?

Just curious cause, apart from this issue with the water, it actually makes a lot of sense.
