Putting On A K&N Pod Filter

No taking the airbox out wont stuff anything up. Using a Pod air filter is fine, im not too sure how legal it is in some states. Another option yould be to get a K@N Pannel Filter and put it in your existing airbox. Then buy an AU2 xr8 snorkle (if you have a v8) or an XH snorkle (if you have an i6) and fit it in place of the old one.

you would be losing power, from not having proper cold air intake. The pod would be sucking all the thin hot air in the engine bay.

so get a proper cold air intake put in, gotta love the induction noise tho :)

Someone on here did a pod filter setup a while ago involving the pod filter inside the standard airbox. May be worth doing a search

Yeah thats what i have, I K&N pod filter in the airbox in My AU1. Pretty easy to do, had to run some different tubing however, that with a T series air intake and you've got the same as something like the one from ssinductions for less than half their asking price.

Im thinking of doing a pod filter for mine, I was told you should run the pipework from the throttle body to the pod filter instead of the airbox, and then put the pod filter inside the guard??? Any one have pictures of a POD filter setup in an EA with MPFI?

you are better off running the pod inside the airbox xplodboom, under the guard is a dirty, low pressure area, you wont notice anything except how often you will have to clean or replace the filter! A pod inside the engine bay is a waste of time also, as it is only sucking in the hot air from the engine bay. As said before, its best to have it inside a sealed airbox with a supply of fresh cool air from the front of the vehicle ( snorkel )
