We would like to notify all those who are wanting to use this intake pipe in conjunction with a POD filter.

This air intake pipe is a direct swap over for your existing factory intake setup. The stainless steel pipe does not extend into the airbox to connect up a POD filter. It will be hose-clamped onto a silicon joiner which will join into your airbox in exactly the same way that your existing air intake pipe does.

If you are wanting to use a POD filter with this set up then you will have to do a modification like is found in this Technical Document; http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=23157

At this stage we are not offering a setup which can be used in conjunction with a POD filter so please don't ask. After this group buy we will be looking into designing a setup which can accomodate a POD filter.

So will these things only look good, or will they provide a (small) performance boost too?
I'm interested in the 2nd design, but dont have the EL joiner. If you could source me one for a few bob extra then I'd def be in... as long it actually does something other than looks.
Cheers

The most that can possibly be gained from modifying your intake is slightly better fuel economy and throttle response and a maximum of 5 extra kw.

There are a million threads on "What Does Modifying My Intake Do For Performance?"

So in answer to your question, having a nice free flowing intake pipe may give you an extra 2 or 3kw but is mainly just for show. But! every little bit helps! :D

Righto... Guess I'll be in for the $80 odd dollar one. How much would you blokes charge me for the EL piece? I could probably just go and get one from the wreckers, but just looking for a price
Cheers

Honestly it would be easier and just as cheap if you tried to get an EL rubber piece from a local wreckers. We could source one eventually but they aren't overly easy to come by. One should set you back roughly $35.

I'll pop your name on the list.

No problem mate.
Has a set postage price been decided on yet? When you get them made up (or need payment, whatever comes first) send me a pm/email.
