ITS a OBX filter, on stock tube's. Had to get a Couppler so it would fit right, haven't taken pics of the back, just got windows XP and i haven't installed my digital camera yet.

On the G1 the air filter mounts differently depending on if the car is a 5spd or an auto. If it's an auto the throttle cables are in the way and you have to aim it down into the engine bay. A 5spd doesn't have this problem and you can mount it like he did above.

A: I did use stock elbow. Leave the plastic insert in it. And miracle of miracles, it fit right in the end of the filter. Turned it a little, plugged vacuume port, drilled another slightly undersized (rubberized elbow didn't need aditional gasket) and inserted vacuume port. It is tight. Sits "slightly" rubbing plug wires and battery. Bent a little sheet metal where the original air box hooked up...:eek: ....
Main thing to watch out for:
The cable from the throttle cam to the trans (automatic). It wants to sit right where you want to put the elbow for your cool new expensive filter...
I just took the bracket off and let it sit on the elbow, attached it to another bracket behind the battery to help stiffen it. If you don't tie it down your trans will slip and you'll start having the "dam I gotta spend a lot of money" sweats... so tie it down and it will shift.

and man, it sounds GREAT!!!

Tips from Buk the king of low tech...

So you go down to the local hardware store and buy yourself a dryer vent tube with attached plastic vent cap wedge on one end. Paint it flat black for stealth. Get under the left front wheel and take off every screw that holds on the flat horizontal vented plastic cover between tire and bumper. Take out pre heater so you have space for vent tube. Cut circle the size of tube in flat plastic cover (right on top of vents). Place panel and tube up into car to measure and cut tube to length. Add seal to top of tube (I used an old door seal) so that it rests up under the sheetmetal where the intake pickup is located. (I'm going to enlarge it next)
Drill 4 holes in plastic cover and rivit or screw vent wedge facing forward scoop like. Replace all those dang screws. Done.

Mildly cold air induction for about $4.00...

Bukowski.... Do you still know the part number of the filter ?? I'm looking to replace my W/R foam filter with the K&N... I'm gonna test the difference with my GTech... I may even throw the old stock one back in to check that as a baseline...

Part Number for Filter

cdndvl, All:
Part number is: E-1796 from K&N. Spent over two hours going through the shelves at the local Pep-Boys to find a fit... :D

Please keep us posted on the numbers with your G-tech.

Thanks all,
