Best filter option

I have considered building an airbox but am very restricted on space and also don't think I will be able to fit ducting etc in the correct places.

My only options I believe are the gauze type filters or air socks - whether it be single or double socks?

I think both options are compromised in terms of performance etc but any opinions on my 'best' option....

Thanks

Jon

Neither are a good option, socks have a habit of being ingested by the engine, gauze can do the same if not made to fit the inlet properly and securely and of cause let in large amounts of crud. Can you not fit a "sausage" style filter?

cut a hole in the bonnet, then you have all the space you need

That is my worry, that both are compromised.

My concern with the sausage style, is that the trumpets are very close to the chassis rail and worry it wont fit.

The link below shows one I have found with no holes in the back plate so I could drill them offset to raise it up as high as possible....

Is there a step by step guide on how to upload photos, it may be clearer then..

I already have a hole in the bonnet which the air socks stick through.

Thanks

Weber DGV carb, OEM inlet manifold, 2.0 Pinto, MK Indy - hole in the bonnet. Passed SVA without issue and ran very well.



I'm guessing you've got something more horizontal than vertical?

I have no idea why it is uploading the picture so big, apologies for that.

However, it shows how close the trumpets are from the chassis rail and my concern regarding fitting a sausage filter....

Would an idea be to remove the trumpets and run it without with a narrow filter?

Your engine is too low at the front, it's meant to slope backwards not forwards. There are oil drains in the rear of the pinto cylinder head to take away excess oil from the cam. The way it's currently sitting it will fill up the front and lead to valve stem smoke. Even the carbs are designed to work with the engine sloping backwards. You will also get incorrect oil level readings on the dipstick as though you were sitting on a slope.

I suggest you fit thicker engine mounts, old ford transit diesel ones are larger and very compliant.

That's not ideal, although should be relatively easy to check etc.

Do you know what sort of angle it should be fitting at?

Thanks
