I wanna try putting a Hornet scoop on my bonnet with a pod directly underneath, straight off the TB. Wonder if it'll perform any better than what I'm running now... or just get me defected :(

I read something on here about losing torque by running a pod straight off the T/B. Something to do with the reduced intake length. It was covered in some thread though.

yeah there is a bloke on here in VIC that has that on his NF/NL, apparently not as good as first thought. tho the cold air wouldnt hurt.

would having a too small pod filter halm the power/torque output on a stockish motor? i bought one of those repco smallish pods thinking it would be easier to fit in the airbox, but thinking maybe its not flowing enough...

tickford have you heard anything about re-oiling K&N's being bad for flow?


over a dry one it probably does. as to it making any difference to your power, i doubt it.

they are a bad enough filter when oiled properly, i'd hate to see the damage done by not oiling one.

As long as it has a 3" neck it should be alright :wink:. I dont think it would make too much of a difference on a stockish motor though, only when you start really working the motor it may restrict it a bit due to the smaller surface area. Couldnt hurt to get a bigger filter in there if you have the money to spend in that area though. I went out and found the biggest pod i could lol and got it for about $50 :lol: fits perfectly and seems to work fine for me
