Default 240 Air Box Replacement

I'm considering ripping out the factory airbox in my 240T and replacing it with a "universal" cone filter setup. I've been using K&N OEM replacements in the other vehicles, but I'm considering other brands. Anyone out there got any first hand experience with Falken, Green or Ractive?

I've used a Jetex on mine.

I'm very happy with it, with the bonus that the CBV now sounds like a full blown dump valve.

It's rated to ~320hp, so I don't think it'll be too restrictive!

How would you do that with the fuel distro in the way?

I'm still working that part out. I've got access to a spare box to experiment with before I actually mod anything on the car. Might need to make some custom brackets...

Get Megasquirt, then run Cone filter. About the only way to solve the problem...

Assuming you're NOT using K-Jet, gut your airbox. If you want, I'll post pictures this weekend.

I removed the fuel distributor and capped the hole with a piece of scrap aluminum and a gasket. Take the air flap out. Remove the hot air crap. Thats all there is to it. My B230FT (and previously a B21FT) have no problems producing power out of that arrangement and a stock filter, along with MegaSquirt. If you want you can put a silica-passing K&N in there.

Advantage: The emissions monkeys can't tell its anything but stock.

oh yeah, what setup are you running?

with my 60 trim t3, bar and plate ic, and b230 ic the stock box wasn't a restriction at all(the head was more than anything) at 15PSI

so if you;re running stock turbo/ic/intake the air box is youre LAST worry IMO

Thanks for all the input. It'll probably be a summer project. I spent my entire day today doing repairs on three different cars...
