Hi Guys

as the title suggests, I'm finding it really hard to locate a local supplier for the MAF adaptors to allow a Cone Filter to be installed into the Foz.
This is something i want to look at doing in the near future, if this is not "sufficient" I will also in the near future be looking at a full stainless 76mm system for some more grunt and growl.
something like the attached would suffice:



TIA
cheers

Iíve had that exact one in your photo, was cheap to import but still a waste of time and money. Heat soak was horrible and I very soon went back to the stock air box. It works.

And a cone filter is only good for very clean environments(showroom floor), or if you really want to practice engine re-buids.

I agree with this.
I also agree that the stock filter is also not that effective in very dusty environments...

If the stock filter is not effective enough, then what is?

My Dirt biking experience says the only way to keep dust out is an oiled foam filter.
On farm machinery the "paper" filters works fine, but only because the machines have a pre-cleaning systems.
My Ford Ranger also gets dusty on the intake side after the filter.

Just look at the amount of filter media surfave you have on a cone filter, and also the "coarseness" of that media.
The speed at which the air goes through a cone filter, compared to a big std filter, is much higher, therefore dirt(especially then fine dust on gravel roads...) is sucked through the media much easier.

Ask yourself the question: why don't cars come out with cone filters? They are so much easier to fit/tuck away/.. they save space and weight. ???

Looks like youíre in luck. I was busy cleaning and came across an intake project I had forgotten about.
Everything you need including a Greddy mushroom filter, maf adapter, etc.

Iíll post pics later if youíre interested.
