All you can order them via autobarn. Autobarn use to sell them off the shelf but they only seem to have Drift, SAAS and K&N pods now. Also those blue DRIFT pods are made by Simota.

when I had my AU taxi I used the intake pipe from throttle body to air box off the taxi (AU straight gas green motor) and put it on my EF it fits perfecly then I put the pod inside the EF air box clamped onto the end of the pipe. job done :)

is there any advantage on the bellmouth piece?

did you just heat the EF pipe and mould it over something?

bellmouth aids airflow, that why all intakes have them.

that added bit is a peice of pvc 75mm stormwater pipe. the intake peice in the airbox is a standard EL-AU top just modified by removeing the material (where the current bellmouth is) and jamming glueing the new peice in.

had to change the stepper motor on my LPG and the old one couldnt get enough LPG into it with the amount of air being forced in with the XR8 snorkel at above 90kmh.

One thing I can say is the response above 3000 rpm is very impressive even on LPG.

I want someone to try this on a petrol car.
all you need is some time..... a cutoff off 75mm stormwater pipe... and a xr8 snorkal ($48 from ford) can even use your standard filter cos at the end of the day it will make bugger all difference.

bellmouth on the stormwater pipe was done on the stove (carefully) and a glass.

heat end , press on glass to round it out and when nearly done carefully heated and flattened a bit at a time on the kitchen bench

this is where I got the idea from
