Air intake recommendations

Firstly hello to all - i'm a long time 'visitor' who has finally gotten around to registering.

I've bought a Edelbrock EFI kit for 289-302w and am looking at what sort of air filter i'm going to put on.

In the pic, you can see the manifold.

Any suggestions are most welcome. My car is a 67 XR Falcon.

I had a single chrome trumpet about 6" high with a foam filter inside - looked mickey mouse and didn't need a hole in the bonnet.

My brother works in the US, and he sent it to me. It is considerably cheaper over there.

VPW sell the same unit for $5995
