Neck Snapper!!

Well not the performance increase, but the deep Hooooowl that my new pod filter makes, made a kid nearly snap his neck turning around to see what was making the noise as I stuck the boot into it. :s6: :s6:

Yeah, the growl sounds very nice :) My mates love it and I usually get a couple of people looking back when I boot it!

Girlfriend's friend last night: "Why does your car make that 'ggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrmmm' noise?"!! Not to mention how excited my g/f gets!

Re: Neck Snapper!!

To pazza and other CFI owners.

You can put a pod filter on CFI motors, First of all remove the rectangular hose from the front snorkel and bend towards the left wheel gaurd 90degrees (L type shape). Now attach a 3in PVC pipe(10cm in length) to the rectangular hose with a 3in hose clamp then run a 3in 90 degree bend pvc pipe off that and connect up a 3in mouth pod filter($30 supercheap etc). The pod ends up directly behind your left indicator so you get cold air on it. I did mine last week, cost $40 total. It has improved my cars throttle response and power compared with the round unifilter air cleaner i was using before. And yes I get a wicked induction noise when i give the old girl the boot. Oh yeah and don't forget to disable the hot air duct if you have the exhaust manifold pipe connected and remove the existing round air cleaner.

cheers JJJ

$17.50, Thats what the filter cost me. :s6:

I still need to get another piece of 3" exhaust pipe tho so I can extend the pod down into the proper area, at the moment its just connected to the standard intake piping.

Re: Neck Snapper!!

Yeah, i don't wanna put my air box cover back on. I'm addicted to that roar! Mus be about the sweetest sound to come out of an E-series.

Would it still be as hot as hell under a bonnet in summer no matter where u put a pod?

Also, i seem to get coolent leaks when i give it heaps with the air cover off.
AND is fitting a pod filter on a E-series illegal?

Re: Neck Snapper!!

Pod filters aren't legal iirc... because the intake system on E-series doesnt use pod filters
