Definetely do the pics thing ;). I read that the BA Pod is a near zero loss filter, so it would seem to be a good idea. The hardest thing is making sure your air stays cool.

ok done this mornin and was a success. now has a nice intake growl under acceleration and im sure it has opend up or changed the exhaust note. for the better tho.

and yea actually a slightly noticeable diffence with added performance.
just a small hitch of the top of the piping cutting into the bonnet liner so i stapled a old plastic cuttin board up ther hopfully that takes the bump n grind and saves my bonnet liner.

tryin to upload pics file limit of 500kb :(.

And by the way, use photobucket or any other photo share website and you won't have to "blank out" your pics

the pod airbox i havec doesnt have a openin for the second intake over the radiator. also from wat ive seen the second intake is preety much zero gain anyway.

i rekon just the one under the light is far big enough.

Sorry to but in, but i find the easiest way to resize the pics is to email them to yourself, it gives you the option to resize them then.

Looks the goods though. I wouldnt mind a BA/BF 3v V8 Ghia in whatever the dr=ark blue was for them.
Cheers
Brett

Picasa (Free, Google) or Windows Photo Editor allows you to resize the whole pic...
