    Icon5 extractors and induction questions

    Just bought a 205 GTi 1.9L and found a huge crack in the exhuast manafold. Its putting fumes through the car at the lights, so I'm in the market for extractos and I dont know who to call.
    whats an average price for headers?
    I'm located in brisbane by the way.

    While I was sussing it all out i took the air-filter cylinder out and found a foam mattress material wraped around stel mesh as a air-filter!

    I've been quoted $130 for replacement k&n but I'm thinking pod filter near battery area, tuck those 2 black boxes under the body and there seems to be enough room.

    Dude unless your gonna seriously work the motor get a secondhand stock extractor put on.

    You can buy K&N pod filters but don't waste your time coz they don't give u extra KWs. They just make the thing more responsive.

    Hi and welcome and congrats on a nice choice of car, do a few searches as this has been covered heaps of times, but to answer your question the standard exhaust manifold is spot on, try to buy a replacement or have it welded, the cracking is a common fault, as for the pod filter the standard system flows plenty of cold air, a pod filter will make no difference except for making a cool whooosing noise when you accelarate. it may also make throttle response a little better.
    A website worth having a read is the puma racing site, lots of honest info on tuning the 8 valve engine www.pumaracing.co.uk

    hey suss,


    you can do what some have done and removed the cat completely but is obviously illegal or replace it with a better flowing cat like err from a commondore.

    yeah, check out that pumaracing site.

    when you replace the air filter make sure you give the inside of the air filter cylinder a good wipe down coz it gets real dirty.

    re pod filter youll just end up sucking lotsa hot engine air... but having said that, luca brother youve got a pod filer... is it worth it and what makes your set up spesh?

    Sure hot air from the radiator and thermo is filling this sudgested area but that "can" gets prety bloody hot to touch uptop of that manafold as well.

    A heat shielded pod filter at the front of the car with a pipe facing the air front on, plus skipping 2 foot or so of pipes running over the hot engine logicly tells me it has to have some advantages. But if I a wrong in my way of thinking I'm keen to learn why?

    A pod filter helps responce.
    Lets say I place a thermostat at both points inside the "can" and infront of battery. If the Battery position is cooler even whilst driving, What can I loose from placing a pod filter filter there?

    cooler, less restricted, less distance air has to travel to the throttle body, more engine responce?

    Thanks for the advice on the manafold, at this stage I plan to weld up crack, new gasket and VN / VP 5.0 L cat. Been told these are least restrictive.

    Please argue my thoughts guys would love to hear yours.

    Kev.
