Hey guys,

I've been through quite a few different ideas in my head but it's finally come that I have to do something about my air filter set up.



I live in Brisbane where the air temps are often 30 degrees which can't be good for intake temps obviously especially as quite a bit of my driving is in traffic.

I was thinking of maybe a Prelude cone filter that alot of people in the states seem to use but I'm unsure how to link everything up - the car doesn't have an AFM so perhaps a 90 degree bend from the black supercharger inlet and some form of pipe towards the headlight?

Or how about a flexi-pipe all the way from the black supercharger pipe to behind the headlight?

What options are people using for enclosed air boxes etc?

Thanks in advance again

Looks to me where you have it would be pretty good. You would just need to cut a hole in your firewall next to the filter element and make a box to enclose that corner and insulate it to keep the majority of the heat out. It would be similar to a Randall style cold air intake like many people use on their N/A cars. It pulls outside(cool) air from the other side of the firewall and it's fairly well protected from the elements there as well.

I would opt for the flex pipe to behind the headlight. Might not look pretty, but Tom at Fastforward has measured the results of all kinds of intake tracts and found virtually no loss with the flex stuff. Once you are there you can surround the filter with a box to isolate it from under hood temps.
