Hi Guys

Just installed a new pod filter in my au and have already found difference in the acceleration on take off. What I want to know is that from memory the pod filter spins the air making it more condenced. I want to know if i need to change the air fuel sensor. If it does need to be changed who sells them and roughly what am i looking at price wise.

Thoughts!!!

no you shouldnt have to change the fuel sensor. its not a big enoughf increase in air. pods actully do next to nothing and cant really be felt. your cars computer will determen the air to fuel mixture itself and will adapt to small changes like this. cheers

Yeah, Pod filters are not that great, They tend to get to much hot air ... unless installed right say in a box or something ..

also, what pod filter are you running? and is it just sitting in the engine bay?

Want to be sure it doesnt get soaked in the rain, or clogged with dust, mud. They dont swirl the air, or condense it either, whoever told you that, is a bull s**t.
