see funny thing is it wont make a difference
because the air box before would bring in the same cold air
reason ur wasting ur time is
the pipe that comes from the throttle body that goes 2 the airflow meter which goes 2 the pod the pipe that comes from throttle body is restricting the flow

The black D shaped plastic on the airflow meter is sealed to protect it from moisture and dust. I don't know about Tasmania but in Vic it can cost you $10,000 if you fiddle with it or even just remove the cover.

Im goin to fit a pod filter to my BG astina. The problem is space. It won't fit if i just take out the air box. There is a black box about 5cm after the AFM and there is a tube running off the bottom of it. Would it be ok to take this box out so i can move my AFM back so i can fit my pod in?? what would i have to do with the tube?? breather filter??? cable tie it some where so it can get some air with no filter???

any help cheers
No don't remove that, it is a resonance chamber, it will have a detrimental effect on the way the engine operates and may even lose power

Go to Autobahn or Repco etc. get one of those alloy 90deg elbow sections(I had an 80mm elbow left over from a turbo install on my Landcruiser that I had made at an exhaust shop), and a couple of the silicon/rubber connector hoses and some hose clamps (to connect the elbow to the AFM and Pod)
Below the air box is a big empty space.
Remove the airbox and the cold air intake tube that runs into this space. I took the black cold air intake tube and cut the it at the bottom in the centre of the "U" section and re fitted it(it's tight but it will fit down beside the pod) this will get you cold air into where the pod is
Fit the elbow to the pod, drop it into that space and then fit the elbow to the AFM.

All you need to do then is tie the AFM to something to stop it rattling or moving about(I used cable ties)
I then cut a piece of rubber sheet to fit around the elbow and cover the space where the pod sits

I know I'm bring back an old thread, but I fitted a pod into my BG yesterday and I just cut some of that piping going to the thottle body and the main section, I only cut about 3cm of each give or take a few cm's then just reconnected everything like normal and there was just enough space for the pod to fit if you put the pod in then connect the AFM to the pod, it does work quite nicly

sounds good when your next to it, but when driving cant really hear it because my exhust is quite loud, as for fuel it depens what I run 91 or 95, put $50 of 91 in yesterday and drove like a good 100km and it went down to half from just below 3/4, when running 95 it last a whole lot long can probs. do a good 150km and it'll be at half from the same point...

I also relised my Revs have gone down about 400RPS doing 100km/h

Not unless you you change a gear ratio in the trans.

I got a pod on my SP20... Sounds awesome although i have noticed it rev harder at higher Rpm but has lost a lil torque down low compared to the stock air filter. i still get 500k's per tank which is funny cause i drive it a lil harder so i can hear the pod LOL

For those having trouble with pod filter adapters... the pod filter adapter (Part number 9007) actually won't work on the BG, so you'll either need to make a rubber gasket (Which I'm doing, got a cardboard gasket right now) to cover up the gap or use a pod filter adapter for the VL Commodore. It'll save you $20. Also do not forget to get the clamp... Zip Ties only hold for so long...
