Very innovative Trollin, great job.

One thing to suggest though if I may, could you replace the concertina type joiners with normal one's, as they create havoc with air flow.

Where did you end up installing your pyro probe?

the pyro probe is below the dump pipe, you can see the wire going to it in one photo, but the probe cant be seen in the photo

i did have dual batteries and that was a good place to put it, but the 60 series airbox meant removal of the second battery, i put it in the ass end area in a battery box, and never bothered to move the isolatpr haha

I also have a 60 series airbox... but i'm about to change it out as I have found that it seems to pass really fine dust.... genuine Toyo filter and all.... am thinking some sort of donaldson with double filtration, but then you need to clean the filter way more often....

I'm going to be making a custom air box out of alloy for mine and using a normal pod filter in it.

If anybody has designs for a upgraded GU type filter (led to belive that the ZD30 is better), I will get them made in stainless or aluminium.

What's the different then using a normal box filter?

Obviously the filter will be a oiled one
Pod filters are (as far as I know) designed for lots of airflow through a small area, so have to have larger holes. They try and compensate by using oil to catch dust, but :S

Paper filters work by having smaller holes, as well as creating a static charge from the air that flows over/through them that attracts the dust to the filter.

I been around turbo cars for years now all running pod filters haven't had any trouble whatsoever one of those running a inclosed cold air induction box. Don't see whats the different to having one on the fourby? As said It will be an oiled type filter and inclosed in a alloy box
