Got a urethane DRIFT pod from autobarn, been told that pods with metal tops act as hot plates and in effect might look good but actually heat the pod up.

I looked at those SAAS pods at autobarn, they come in a nice box much like the drift one i got.

cheers.

actually, please tell me if im wrong, but the way i see it is when you plant it the throttle body opens up and the less restriction the quicker and easier the air can be sucked in, rather than having to pull it up through a twisted stock pannel filter setup. sure its not going to have any advantage if its sucking hot air because people dont think to vent to get cool air to the pod, but if it does get the cooler air... its basically stright down there when it needs it.


so surely this is the solution.

depends, where the pod is located, how much air restriction and how much hot air it suffers from, sometime a pannel filter is much better as it dosent get hot air, but if the pod gets cold air it may be better.

As long as the pod has a heat shield from inlet manifold( gets hot) and has cold air feed, it will work really well. my 2bob anyway.......
