do Pod filters really make a noticable difference in power and fuel consumption?
It takes just a moment to join our fantastic communityRegister
BAM right on. The pod only gets better performance cause its not enclosed and is free breathing. Put a pod into the same intake box as ur flat filter and you wont notice a thing cause only so much air can get into the box. Seriously, get a good flat filter and customise the intake box (maybe cut a larger hole and make a better/wider cold air intake). Its all about more air getting to the engine easier.POD filters... again? seriously?? We need to just make a stick thread about POD filters...
Yes they can improve fuel economy and give better throttle response IF they are correctly installed within a heat shield so they don't just suck hor air from the engine bay.
Though they are illegal... by ADR regulations.. thus in all states IF they have an oiled reusable filter... as having an oiled filter un-enclosed in the engine bay.. is illegal. Same as alot of OTRCAI's.
ANd finally... your just better for getting a better flowing panel filter and putting that in the air box with a better CAI... better result... less hassle.
