is it single or multipoint injected. i had ea s pack 5sp multipoint and all it had was cat back exhaust and on 3 occasions on 3 diff dyno's pulled over 100 rwkw. ranged from 104 - 107kw.

if you do pod filter make sure it is enclosed not open to engine bay heat otherwise you are wasting yor time anyway.

Hi

I own a 98 el futura 6cl, and was considering putting on a pod filter (K&N) on, but was wondering how hard it is to mount into the exsisting filter bay, if possible.

Any comments would be great
