    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    @ MR $400 for a $36 piece of rubber I'm making a new lid "cause I can" to save some $$$$$.
    Understand what you're saying Ben , so why are ppl buy a Crap alloy air box that delivers air the same as an OE box.
    Its good with all the attention now, I have seen enclosed "POD" style filters,
    that are straight through, with a Kevlar appearance.

    The new lid is to allow for a 3" intake, I'll have a spare MAF housing soon I hope to modify so it fits a piece of 3" piping.
    As I said before not sure this will make any big differnce performance wise, but hope it delivers more air in a more
    efficient way.

    http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/UNIVERSAL...item2a49128943

    I would think a round filter housing would be the way to go,,, I'll go see some of my
    mates with the high output toys and see what they say or come up with

    It looks good the rubber/plastic cobra adapter, except for 3 things.
    Sharp bend, air has to negotiate , coming out of box creating flow issues.
    2, shape changes twice , added turbulence and further restriction.
    3 the sharp corners "bellow area" within the short length create further turbulence.

    I just can't see how this will help, other than shifting the air boxes oem restrictive outlet.

    I'm hoping to use 3" all they way to the turbo from the top of the air cleaner box using 3" stainless fittings
    Somehow I'll incorperate the OE MAF housing into the 3" piping,
    that cobra head is only if you have no room . I''l put up a pic of what I think it'll look like
    It there are no gains how come there are heaps of PPL doing this mod,lol and I mean heaps
    plus all the aftermarket gear you can buy to acheive the same thing I'm doing

    yes it does address the issue of up sizing dia "in the given space using the std airbox".
    but imo that is all.

    bends and changing shape in a very short distance creating its own problems.
    and that's the trade off, cobra head addressed the 3" issue but created another,
    oh and simply moved the oem air box flaw down the line further.

    Increasing dia all the way to turbo with "minium bends & restriction" etc is the better option.
    In doing this is where you will notice a good result, yes.
    I was simply pointing out its set backs, money could be wasted, if your chasing the best result possible.
    Hope I've better explained m2cw

    Alls good the more imput the better, the first 3" 90 is set into the lid then a 45 and then another 90 down to the turbo.
    Could do the lot all tigged with the MAF sensor housing incorperated into it at about where it is now.
    Bit that gets me is they say the OE airbox supports so many KW but fitting the stainless steel lid and 3" cobra head it will support more KW
    So is their theory more air more KWs can be put into the motor

    The OEM convoluted tubing is enough to create plenty of turbulence. Even if you were to go the same size but eliminate the convoluted tubing, it would make a difference.

    I think there will be pretty good gains wiv what ur wanting to archive with ur intended mods to airbox.. Not a zd30 but I'm pretty sure this is what u want.. 3 inch streight frm airbox lid to turbo but with the the original maf housing modified to be part of that particular intake system... Keep up the good work and let us knw how u go.. Cheers mullet..
