    Default pod filter placement in 250gti

    Im going to put a pod on my 205, only because my stock intake sys is shagged & will probably fall off soon (the barrell holding the filter is hanging by a thread ), im not expecting anything performance wise, so please no need to tell me this ok (cause i know someone will)


    I've got a pod filter of a mate for free & thought i may as well use the thing.

    Just want to know where you guys reckon the best position for the filter would be? This pic attached has more or less what i thought would be a good position, what do you think? Where will the most amount of cold air come in (if at all)

    I'm pretty sure PeterT or one of the other gurus had a setup that was ducted and heat shielded which is the option I will be going for. Shielding shouldn't be too difficult, but ducting could be a little more involved either through the front (like the oem one) from underneath (do the 206s use this) or making use of a bonnet duct for that touch of rice

    You could always do the fau-racer (read: canary candidate) and duct through the left headlight.

    Excuse me SON but that pod filter is going to give u less power than the standard system and it will be too loud and noisy it may damage your hearing aid when your driving to the local RSL

    AHAHH, sorry sir. I shall write, 'modifications on peugeots aren't allowed' 100 times on the blackboard'

    O alex got a pic of your setup? If i remeber correctly you had a decent DIY heat shield thing on yours didnt you?? Or was i dreaming?



    Btw how hard is it to move the battery to the boot, would i even need to do that?? I mean id have a heap more space if i did.

    ok ,asanka ive seen this conversion done on another 205 gti where he had the pod behing the headlight as in the 405 setup.
    he used a NISSAN rubber pipe that is nearly the same as present one [ie same amount of hose fittings]that he got from pick a part.as long as it has the right hose connections,you can use any make car.
    this one was straight and was the right length without any cutting.
    you put the afm in line with pod.
    if you want to check out the wreckers,ill come with you as i might do similar and im interested in checking this out further.

    now moving the battery into the boot can be done pretty easy if you have the right tools.
    ask chris about it as he is going to do it soon.
    also you can run the cables inside the car if you want.

    or you can do what chris has to the recce 205 and put it on at the a.f.m and get rid of all the other piping.

    or put it on where the pug one connects so it sits over the manifold but you better make a heat sheild as it will be drawing straight off the manifold heat.

    i reckon the behind the head light is best as you can drill holes in the plate below to let in more cold air.
    good luck-BAZZZZZZZZ

    This is the setup in my car, but since the photo I have added a heat shield under, behind, & between it & the head up to the under side of the bonnet. I have recorded the air temp with no more than 1 degree difference than outside temp while driving. The battery is in the hatch (another great mod). I machined an adapter between the flex hose & the throttle with a huge lead in. This adapter also has the connections from the cold start valve & fuel tank breather. Performance improvement? Well, not really noticeable.

    Whats going on?? I can see daylight and the ground through your engine bay! You must have an undersize 205 engine in there!!

    I reckon if you work out the angles the light seems to be shining out of an orifice about a metre off the ground, pointing down, just in front of the grille?

    and also because the battery is missing and the battery tray also.
    these usually sit right over the area where you can see through to the ground.-BAZZ

    actually on second look the tray is there ,but the bent air flow pipng sits in this area usually???-BAZZ

    I guess some of the comments on this thread just proves that you hear only what you want to hear.

    Just out of interest, what was the power/torque benefits of this set-up?

    Asanka, why not just put it like the other guys have, behind the headlight, and run a seperate pipe from behind one of the spot lights up to under the pod...? My mates 206 has this and you can hear it suck... thats all he wanted from it. - Chris

    ...... hmmm .

    Just under the headlight is the go. Just make sure it follows a straight course. That relay box thingy that hangs orf the support panel can be moved giving clearance. I ran a length of pipe diverting air from the grille to the filter.

    Yes your right i have to filter out most the bullsh1t + useless dribble that the internet mechanics love to spin on these forums.

    how was power improved? I have no idea....i have said many times over the past year(s) in different pod related threads that i DIDNT have the standard GTi6 airbox and thus it was much easier to slap a pod on there with a homemade dodgy heatshield. I now have a BMC CDA airbox on and the low down torque is improved as is top end while remaing shielded from the engine bay heat.

    Did you ditch the AFM? and if so what did you use?
    Thanks, Chris.

    Yes, no AFM. I used a Haltech ECU with MAP and TPS load sensing.
