Ive got a VX S with standard CAI.

Ive decided to run extra piping from airbox to the front spoiler and take advantage of my fog light holes to get some colder air into the airbox.

I want to change from flat panel to Pod buttt I'm havign some issues finding an attachment that'll fit onto the Air Flow Sensor (diamater of about 3.5") and slide into the airbox through standard hole and attach to a pod filter.

Can anyone who's done this mod shed some light on what they used?

Thanks

I've tried every place thinkable to get an adaptor - only place I havn't tried is an exhaust place to get a piece custom made..

really? because so far (without the pod) and after two full tanks of fuel - I've had a noticeable mileage increase as well as small performance increase.

Either way - where did you get your adapter mate? :)?

hey dude i have just done a similar mod to my vx and this is how i did it..go to bunnings or plumbers supplies and buy a section of grey(to match other grey bits under bonnet and white looks **** and gets dirty)90mm storm water pipe.make sure you get the piece with flared end.the flared end will slip right into the air sensor with the original clamp still being used to hold in place then attatch pod to other end.not sure about fuel consumption but hey who cares when it sounds tough??check out these pics there in the dark but you should still be able to see what i've done.hope this helps you let me know how you go...

funny you ask.. left the lid on the driveway in my haste to take the car for a rap around the block to check things out(to make some noise)hehe, and when i come back, because the car is so low at the front i actually got the lid stuck under the front bar when i come back up the driveway and ground some of it away!! still useable in the future just a little worn on one edge hahahaha:thumbsup:

not really dude..you could probably do something if you were really keen but would involve a lot of mucking around with reducers..one thought but..how you gonna attatch the pod inside the box...and why do you still want the lid on??you wont hear the thing working...
