Re: Airbox pics for you all

Getting into a Fiesta airbox is a more lengthy procedure than, say, breaking into Fort Knox, or trying to sort out the Tax Pack for Small Business.

So from what I can work out, you've removed the airbox assembly (both top and bottom), and installed some heat sheilding onto it to prevent heatsoak from whatever it is that the airbox sits on, is that correct?

Not a bad idea to have done,if that is correct!

Re: Airbox pics for you all

also removed what can only be described as really squigly plastic resonator.. u can just unclip it and remove it, as soon as i did this when i put my foot on accelerator you could hear the car sucking in air.

Re: Airbox pics for you all

I was thinking of almost totally hollowing mine out, leaving only the filter, filter mounts and screw areas. Could you think of a reason why this wouldn't be a good idea?

You can get BMC carbon airbox, but they are extremly noisy and require extremly frequent cleaning.

Re: Airbox pics for you all

Mitch...has the heat shielding help reduce induction temps??

On mine, as soon as it is a hot day and the car sits after a run, it is just a pig to drive as heat soak is a problem so it just does not want to rev. It is noticable.

Does anyone know if a pod style filter can be adapted to suit and remove the air box??

IOM, a pod filter inside the airbox would be best, as you'd get more surface (filter)area using a pod as well as getting cold air from the outside the engine bay by still utilizing your box.

On the otherhand, your engine bay would look better getting rid of the box and having your pod exposed. But then again, your pod would be sucking heated air radiated from your motor, radiator, etc. Not really nice.
