Can You Get Around Having Pod + Intercooler?


Recommended Posts

hey guys. just a quick question. how do so many people get away with having a pod + intercooler? i dont want to put the stock air box back in but its looking like i have too now i have a big front mount. Also, the intercooler pieping run's pretty dam close to where the stock box sits. so is there any other way i can keep both? by making a cover for the pod etc or any ideas?

is this for defect needs or personal hahaha..

defect. (depending where you are) there are rules about pods/intercoolers

personally. FMIC and pod + heat shield & CAI is the best way to go IMO.

there should be room for both if thats what you mean as well even without sepearting them?

I asked a while ago, If putting fmic on and keeping stock airbox , you need to cut out some parts of the snorkel so that it can fit again!

I couldnt be bothered cutting it, so Im retainig ym unifilter pod and airbox set up.

Its not exactly bad having the stock airbox...as long as u can get it to fit i don't see why you would need a pod...a hi flow panel would work fine...if u must have a pod...hide it inside the stock airbox...skylines are lucky to have large airboxes which can accomodate some pods...its probably beneficial to have the box there to shield the pod from hot air anyway...you can choose to cut out the base of the airbox too to allow more air flow in as well...i've done it...works well...

I've got permits for the fmic and pod filter (I'm in WA) but am looking to shield the pod somehow. Was going to put it inside a standard airbox but upon closer inspection I think it will foul with the fmic piping, so I'm going to get some cardboard and sheetmetal and knock up a simple barrier, probably open at the top.

    • This is the famous "why is there a stud that stops me putting the rear wheel on the front?" question. There is no functional difference except for the tyre size. Nissan put a little stud onto the rear wheel so you couldn't put the fatty on the front, is all. Stud is easily removed, problem goes away.
    • Trust me mate, you've got way more important things in your life to spend your time thinking about.  Both rims are 18x8 with 30 offset. Put some tyres on and forget about it. 
    • No scam Murray"...........so why are the wheel rims stamped rear or front? the owner's manual refers to different tyre sizes front to rear but doesn't explain anything about rim differences.
    • Cars all over the world are frequently having the wheels rotated front to back to even out tyre wear. I'm thinking a front rim and rear rim is something like a right handed and left handed screwdriver.  You didn't have to measure your rims, they are both 18 inches rims, 8 inches wide with a 30 offset. What were you measuring when you were trying to find discrepancies between the rims? Looks like the only thing you need to sort out is a matching set of rubber for them.  But if this was just a troll post, good job mate you got me. 
    • Been doing some part collecting  first we have the oil pump blank because of the external pump the engine will now have  new set of cam gears from prp, my old ones were fine but I like the locking system prp have come up with on their versions  new timing belt, tensioner, idler, washer and crank gear  brand new rear main seal housing just because  and all new seals from nitto (they came in the full gasket kit)
