I've been looking around on ebay and can't find any k&n panel filters for a BA (except 1 that comes with a bigger snorks which I dont want). Alot suit AU and all e-series. Is the BA airbox larger or something?

EA-AU 6 cylinder's use air filter A491 which is a KN33-2015.

BA 6 cylinder's use air filter A1475 which is a KN33-2852.

BA airbox is a lot larger, and the K&N filter is somewhat more expensive.

I had a K&N in my EL XR6 and took it off before I received my BA. Cleaned it up and went to put it in the BA and found it fitted except for 1 corner which was rounded more than the others. So, no-go with the K&N. Anyone after a low KM K&N for an EF/EL?

I'm not from the area, but just about every spare parts place deals with Rocket Industries, and they are the Australian distributor of K&N filters.

Hey guys, hey smiley you heaped me heaps with my BA mods summary.

Uhhh i rang rocket industries (didnt even know this thread existed till i searched to check price against quote) - they said ANY auto parts retailer will have or order KN filters for you - eg Repco ; Autobarn or whatever company in state.

From their website (rocket indust) http://www.rocketindustries.com.au/sear ... 0&limit=50

KN33-2708 K&N FILTERS - Panel Filter - Ford Falcon (a431)

KN33-2015 K&N FILTERS - Panel Filter - Ford Falcon Eb-au (a491)



Me - Queensland- Repco quoted me $161 for a KN filter for a BA I6.

I reckon thats a bit of a BS price ey (fu%king repco).....BUT it is for a BA i guess and yeh...well is the closest store. but i reckon i might just ring around, tell the other stores what Repco quoted me and see if they can beat that price.

hehe, cheers mate, I guess it does pay off to help others :wink: I thought i'd be looking around that price range, damn I wish i could start my apprenticeship now!! i'll ask repco if their air filters ever go on sale, that would be my best bet.

Check out Jay at RPD's price on K&N. He's usually the cheapest around western Sydney and he does mail order.
