How illegal are they - well, usually something is either legal or illegal. There are not too many degrees of legality. Best way to find out is to ring your rego mob and ask them. I understand the rule here to be as long as the filter is securely mounted, it is fine.

And most of them are red, though there are other colours around. I had a Simota one (about $50 from most auto shops such as autobarn, supercheap etc).

JC, I think he meant a defect notice when he said "Yellow" - not the colour :)

I had a K&N pob on my EB, and was pulled over many times by our friends/enemies in BLUE. They never blinked an eye at it, and was not securily mounted. All i did, was remove the air box, cut the restreictor throat off the rubber intake pipe, and put a piece of 4 inch alloy pipe between it and the pod. My pod had a 4 inch throat on it, and was 10 inches long. The more clean air the filter can hold, the better.

Only thing with pods is that they can suck the hot air from the engine bay, not the best for performance. Though its probably still better than the original setup.
Check out Cold Air Intakes (CAI) while your at it. Theres a couple posts on these forums, just do a search

ford racing make a nice carbon fibre partition, to seperate you pod filter from engine bay heat. They are $500 and you get the partition and a K&N pod with it. All you need to do is cut a hole under the partitioned space for it to breath cold air from under the car. Be careful if you have ABS, as the ABS module is under the airbox mount. Contact Race Parts Australia in stapylton on 07 3807 6870 for info on the partition.
