Pod filter recommendations for v8

Hey all,

Just wondering if anyone has recommendations for what brand pod filter to get to suit at '92 v8 falc. remember, that they have screw in MAF's, so a pod that preferably accomdates this would be good!

Thanks

I wouldn't really bother. You will either have to remove the airbox and suck hot air, or modify the airbox to allow the use of the pod. A K&N panel filter will give you more than enough air for most engine mods. If you do go for a pod filter, I would image you will either have to buy an adaptor, or make one up to allow the pod to bolt upto the MAF.

Or .... you could just buy a K&N Filtercharger which includes the Bellmouthed adapter plate within the kit.
Try A1 Performance in Myree, McKoy st.

The Bellmouthed adaptor included will bolt onto the ford MAF will it? What rough price are the Filtercharger units?

Re: Pod filter recommendations for v8

Yep your right, It does suck in hot air from the engine but only when stationary. A good heat shield will help a bit.

I'm gonna build a clear perspex box around the unit and duct air to it. so yeah hot air wont be a problem in the end...

Re: Pod filter recommendations for v8

I would much rather keep the airbox and use a K&N filter panel, or you could just modify the airbox to put a Pod into it like EDXR8 said.

I lost power my 5 litre with a pod. Went back to airbox and just used a K&N filter panel

Re: Pod filter recommendations for v8

I modified my existing air box, cut a hole in the bottom and into the inner guard and used flexitube and faced it forward. Ya cant see it unless I was to point it out to ya. And it cost $50 and 20mins to install.
Cheap and effective!

PS I also have a K&N panelfilter in the airbox too which aids the airflow too. A must imo.
