personaly i dont see the point in a pod filter as it sits in the engine bay sucking in hot air.

iv used the stardard air box with a K&N high flow filter and it made a big improvment in response and fuel economy. Plus its not defectable

There a few options on what you can do...

Like wtbdlltd said you can leave the airbox there and use a K&N Filter.

Put the pod filter in the air box.. http://www.fordmods.com/documents.php?d=84

I would advise putting it back in the box and running it like that.... If you wanted more air to it try different mods to the air box such as:

Bigger intake pipe
Larger snorkel
"Speed holes" in the side of the box

Yeah try some heat proof paint cause other stuff will just start to wear and bubble if it isn't. Just take it out of the engine, give it a good scrub and clean, paint it back up and let it dry for a few hours.
