Air Box replacing sock filters?


I need to get a new set of sock filters, it's a Tiger Supercar running a 2.0 pinto and twin 45's.

Having done some reading it has been suggested these can restrict the flow of air as so I was wondering if there was a better option. I've been looking at potentially making a stainless box to fit over the trunpets with maybe a single large filter facing forwards at the front..... Or maybe some ducting of some fashion....

Has anyone any advice or recommendations on this area....

Simple solution is K+N (or similar quality) dcoe filters. Do not be tempted by cheap filters, they are just not as good

But an airbox is a fine idea. I recently made one for my car (st170 fitted with GXSR ITB's, so broadly similar design to what you will need) made of ali, used pop rivets and sikoflex for joints, though welding would be nicer. All off to a big K+N cone filter via trunking.

And yes, socks are restrictive, a tiny filter area.

Stainless will be a lot harder to make than alloy. and probably heavier.
Why not ally?

Beware of what you wish.. for it may come true....
