whats a rocket cover? :lol:

Well there isn't much room above the engine to fit a filter and pipe to the throttle body. Why dont you just install the second battery in the boot?

I agree. Much easier.

3 options.

do your idea, worry about heatsoak

theres a forum meber that makes bbm's with the throttle facing the other way.

3. there is a white falcon on this club that has your idea, but without a scoop, he has his POD filter half sticking out of the bonnet.

Love to find out who makes the bb manifold with the t-body facing the other way. It would be way more efficient at a guess.

I have this in my EA ... and did it 4 years ago .. still running it now.
It would be the best mod if you went turbo.

So yes ... having your air cleaner out the bonnet is ok and you get good clean air ... and also get a soggy filter when it rains if your not care full .

Having your t/b turned around was a good throttle pick up and felt good... I used to have the filter under the guard in front of the tyre.
If you are thinking of turboing then I would do this so it has way better air flow

Bloke at drag day with the cortina, cant remember the name however he said he'll be posting up a thread soon after he installs it into his mates car.

He does a very good job of it too, looks like it was released from factory like that.

like i said if u want an alternate spot to put ur air filter so it cant b seen ur gonna hav to go under a guard..ur gonna put the other battery where the airbox is ...i hav done this so i could put my filter where the battery used to be....so the air dosent hav to travel as far to the turbo...
ur gonna hav a battery there to and u dont really hav any more room for an airbox in the engine bay.. so go under 1 of the guards.....drivers side would be the easiest.
yes it illegal but there isnt much more option....the shaker would look cool for sure.....but then you got to cut a hole, mount it some how, connect it some how, and make sure it wont get wet when it rains.

if ur filter is down under a gaurd yeah it mite get a bit we from spray when driving in the rain. but theres alot less chance of it getting sucked into the engine.......aposed to it soaking down into a filter through a scoop.

i wouldnt go putting a filter in the space above ur exhaust either....unless u dont mind a heap of heat soak
