Hi all,

New here but am starting first mods - want to drop in a K&N filter. I ordered a E-2790 as the guy at the performance shop said it was the correct model for my car. However I've got it now and it is nowhere near the size of my current filter. I've done a bit of searching through the forums but cannot find a reference to the model.

Its a round filter - the E-2790 is a wide and shallow ring, my filter is narrower and heaps deeper.

Anyone know? Will post pics soon if that helps...

I'm thinking one might not be available and will have to get a pod instead.

Thanks heaps
Matt

Took the filter back today and got a refund... they are like 'oh the turbo model' must have missed that. Basically they confirmed that there isn't one available for the turbo and that a pod setup would require some major modifications as well. Back the the drawing board...

Hey flavor flav do you have pics of your pod setup?

will have man...basically this is what you need to do...

Buy a 4" inlet pod filter
buy some 4" PVC pipe
fit the air flow sensor unit in the 4 inch PVC...
bolt the pod filter so that it sits right in there on the 4" pvc...
the next step is the hardest and that is getting a custom made pipe from the turbo to the air filter....this is the stage that I am up to....
