pod filter sizes


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

i recently bought a heat shielded 3a racing pod filter to replace my current pod. my new pod is smaller than the existing pod. car sorta feels kinda differnt when driving i think it may have a bit more torque down mid. so i wanna know if this is a placebo?

makes zero difference

Unless of course you go too small or too large, and it either becomes a restriction or a resistance (too small and you'll choke the intake, too large/thick and you might get too much of a pressure drop through the filter). You'd have to go to extremes for that though.

Universal Racing Auto Air Intake Cone Filter BLK

I have an above filter for sale and its neck is 2.75inch and its more better than a 3a pod as it much louder and you can fell the difference.

had tried a trd pod and k&n before but this one is much better!

^^^^ ROFL at this guy...

mate, if you wanna sell your pod filter, then start another topic for it... :lol:

i'm with Hiro on this one... if its the extremes of sizes, then yes, it will make a difference... but slight changes shouldn't/wont make any difference... :)

well technically, the OP didnt say the sizing of the old pod and the new pod... so if they are indeed a big difference in size, then you are WRONG.. so bite me princess!! :P

oh and fyi, if the filter needs to be oiled, then they all come pre oiled... ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh SNAP back at ya... :P :lol:

And I tried Toyota OEM, it was better than everything out there including URAAICFBLK... Believe me? It gave me VVTLift-i, VTEC, i-VTEC, MIVEC and i-Joking.

Anyway back on topic... Your heat shield not really making sense to me =| It looks like a copper's siren/strobe.

I'm "assuming" its to replicate this idea?

Get the red one, it goes faster?

what ? do u think the size of the heat shielded pod would restrict flow?

No, it's red. Red ones go faster.

fyi i got the red because it matches my colour scheme...
