I just installed my pod filter today but I had trouble finding an adaptor for my EA everytime I asked at the auto stores the idoit's kept giving me adaptor's for the EF/EL and onwards that bolt on in four places and I had to point out on the packet's "No you givin me the wrong type I said EA/EB or ED only there's nothing to bolt onto it's just tubing" they kept going " it has to fit mate it says so in the book" I said " mate if you knew what the setup's looked like you would know there totally different what your giving me is an adaptor to fit an air meter which is for the EF/EL and onwards were as the EA/EB & ED's don't have them on the intake tube at all " I even showed one guy so he could see the huge difference.

After all that crap was told then there is no adaptor for that model then which p****d me off so I started looking at the pod adaptors to see if there was one I could use and YES I found one it's for a Holden Commodore VN to VS just perfect for the job and below is it fitted into my EA Falcon.

What I plan to do now is to close the pod filter from the engine bay like a heat sheild if anyone has made one already please post your pics of it thanks.

I like the angle the pods on, sits really nice. You should be able to blank that whole area of nicely.

Then you will want to drill a hole down through the gaurd and feed it air from down there with a 80+mm pipe.
Probably also a wise idea to install an XH snorkel to feed into the closed off section.

Well like I said that area will be closed off so it won't suck the hot in.

Yep that will be after the are is closed off I will then add a CAI to it and I should be able to feed that tube to the bumper bar lower grill area so it won't stick out the bottom.

Thanks for the XH snorkel idea as well. :wink:
