i'd have just put an EF box in there.
easy as to do, you just reverse the flow throught the box and use an XH intake

heaps better then any open air pod

the EF and EL/AU boxes where very close when not fitted with a filter.

but the EF one had a smaller drop in flow when a filter was fitted.
they said it was because of the pipe inside the EF box drawing air from the center not at one edge.

Ok, just a quick question, will an EB lid fit the ef box? I assume it would, and the airflow could then be rerouted? Actually.... Would be a waste of time I think. Nevermind!
