Just thought i would let people know, i installed a pod filter on my EF Fairmont 2day, and couldnt be happier!!! The sound above around 3000rpm is wild, even though im yet to adapt the lid to allow the pipe in (ie. the lid is off at the moment).
All i did, was get a second rubber hose that is used to adapt the plastic to the throttle body at the other end from a wrecker ($4) , a 45 degree 3" stainless steel bend ($35), and a pod filter ($35). Unfortunately i couldnt afford a K&N pod just yet, but the cheapie will have to do for now. Put it all in place using clamps, and in around 40 mins my car was sounding wild!! i dunno if it will make a whole lot of difference to performance, but even if its the same, just the sound made it worth while.
Soon i will cut out the hole in the lid into an arch shape so i can close the lid over the pod to help keep out the hot air, and just take it in the snorkel. This will prolly make it quieter but help perfomance
I've got a 95 EF Falcon, thinking about doing the same thing...
When you get a picture, be sure to post it, i'd love to see exactly where you ran it and what problems you encountered...

How much boost?
Well, pics may be a bit of a problem as i no longer have a digital camera and none of my friends either..... But there have been no problems as yet, except it took about 4 hacksaw blades to cut the stainless pipe :D
The 45 bend I cut about 40mm either side of the bend giving a total length of around 160mm from end to end. The rubber connector off the throttle body is then used to clamp straight on to the existing factory piping (with the lid off) and the other end to one end of the 3" pipe. The bend is aiming almost straight down into the box (about 80degrees or so), with the pod clamped onto the other end, facing down into the box. What i will do next, is where the factory pipe bolts into the lid, i will cut that out into an arch shape to allow it fit over the rubber connector, and to be easily removed.
Hey I've got a question in reguards to washing the filters, such as K&N.
Does anyone know what exactly chemicals is used to clean them? The whole point to this question is so I can fgure out what cheaper stuff can be used to clean it instead of forking out the $$ for the proper K&N cleaner.
Any ideas fellas?

just added one to my EB couldnt be happier:):) in reference to bass crazy the only way is with the K&N cleaner ne thing else can halm the filter or clog it with crap:S soz i know its expecive about 22.99 from SCA (where i work)
