Just wondering.. i have a vn s, will a pod filter do anything at all performance wise? i hear K&N filters are the best, my mate also says they use more fuel, is it worth getting one? Cheers Shaun

do a search bro. theres like a million threads..

ive had one, and i liked it. pretty cool, makes a cool noise when accelerating thats about all i noticed. I wouldnt bother getting a k&n, just get a cheap one.

ive got a CAI and k&n panel filter at the moment and in all honesty, i think the POD was better, should have kept it.

English is good too, you know.

You'll never get a pod to fit in your airbox. A cai may or may not be better... I think alot of it comes down to perception..

I beleive that having a CAI would help, think about it. Leave the bottom of the air box connected to the CAI. Sit the attached POD ontop of the bottom half of the air box. CAI gets colder air and sends it to POD.....Simple.

I now have used both on separate occasion.
My ratting is there both very even.

Low down Pod wins.
Mid range CAI wins.
Economy wise freeway driving both keep revs down and bring better economy.
Heat CAI wins
So in summer the CAI would also win.
Sound wise the Pod wins if you have the right one it might buzz like a supercharger.

none
wow and no one knows a thing about pod filters

fact 1) larger surface area
fact 2) no bottle knecks in the filter area
fact 3) DOES suck in hot engine air
fact 4) ARE NOT ILLEAGLE
fact 5) Do increase performance (just ask hozy)
fact 6) you can make a heat shield like mine to prevent against hot air being sucked in

they do sound louder, ive found the cheaper ones are better

in my opinion pods are crap and jus suck in hot air...... stick with an airbox and cai and a highflow panel filter... it works great and is legal :)
