I dunno if local Ford dealers would have pod filters but you can pick up Tickford/GT ect. snorkels from spare parts.

Autobarn / Supercheap / Bursons and all those kind of places will stock K&N and other filter brands as well as SS inductions and similar systems.

This is the pod filter I did today. I tried to put it in the box but I just couldn't fit it.

My question is: With the snorkel and the bottom of the box still there and bringing in cold air, is the hot air from the engine going to effect it that much? If so, how do I get it to fit? Can I grind down the supporty things on the top of the box so that it'll fit?

You just gotta get a pipe that you can tilt in down into that bottom part of the box, or as per the instructions use the pipe thats inside the top part of the box. Is it an EF or EL though? I think only the EF has the pipe inside the top box.

It's an EF. I've cut the pipe about halfway but even if the pipe isn't screwed onto the box, I can't get the angle I need to keep the pod there. Where does someone get one of those modified steel pipes the run the whole length so you don't have to have the plastic at all?

use the ef top half of the box just cut the rubber pipe inside to the first joint line closest to the opening then slide the pod on and tighten. and for a better fit grab a grinder and get rid of those high bits on the bottom of the box.

You could buy a 3in 45 degree bend (PVC storm water pipe) from Bunnings for $3. Then bolt the adaptor back on the lid with the 4*bolts. Cut the trumpet back so it protrudes about an inch into the lid. push the pvc 45 bend inside the rubber pipe and attach a hose clamp to it. Now attach the pod to the other end of the PVC bend.

Cheers...

Have a read of this;

Results:: 3A racing $30 pod was found to be the best, K&N pod the 2nd best.
