Re: Pod Filter ?

it depends on the size of your airbox and intake plumbing as much as the 'pod' itself..

got a picture of your airfilter, and induction set up as it is now.. If it is really poorly designed or restrictive a pod might reduce a bottleneck and let her breathe freely.. It not really a more HP thing but a faster throttle response anyhow

Re: Pod Filter ?

on a mirage it would make a difference as they are only a 1.5, but it mite be worth it to borrow his air filter for the day and see how your car goes with it.

Re: Pod Filter ?

the way ahmed has his setup it aint working to properly, its drwaing hot air from the exhaust, it'll prob work but is drawing hot air from the motor, on a mirage the pod sits behind the battery, it mite work on urs, thats y i suggested that u borrow ur mates filter and see how u go

Re: Pod Filter ?

ur talkin about the cool sucking nosie yer ahmed?

i could try do that xf6250...i doubt he'd wanna take it off and put it on mine etc......

he got a mate to make up a bracket with a piece of stainless steel piping...

do u know what would make it work on mine? is it just a matter of what position its in?
