  • Where to put my air filter?

    Hi All,

    So I have a EFR turbo fitted to my car and it is really tight to get an air filter to fit in.

    Have any of you fitted a filter in the inner arch? If so could you link me to some pictures?
    Also what size of filter would you recommend for over 500 BHP


    Thanks!

    I routed my inlet down through the inner wing and the filter is behind the bumper air duct. I'll dig out some pics if of interest.

                  Or it’s a joke?

                    Filter has now been lifted up as it was resting on the undertray.

                      It now has a 90 degree bend in the piping to raise the filter up in line with the grill in the bumper and to move the MAF away from the filter.

                        Other than potential turbo damage, fitting a simple mesh on the turbo, isn't that the most optimal 'air intake'?
