    Open Airfilter isolation

    Could someone please redirect me to somwhere I could buy somekind of housing for my open airfilter? As it is now the filter is sucking in all the warm air from the engine compartment, I'd like to isolate it somehow.

    I was thinking something like this:


    My airfilter:

    Oh... they have to be able to ship to Sweden.

    Thanks in advance.

    That is a ready built filter. It isn't a cover to put over an existing filter. Take a look a filters like the K&N typhoon, Pipercross Viper, BMC enclosed etc.

    The thing is that I want an oil free filter so filters like K&N are no good, isn't there a housing of some kind that you can buy?

    Yes it's called an airbox, you car should have had on at some point.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    If you want an oil free filter, get an APexi! Works well and sounds good to!

    Apexi isn't enclosed.

    Diddy, did you look at the BMC and viper to see if they are oiled or not

    Is BMC and viper enclosed though?
    I've replaced my AEM filter with the standard box for the time being.

    Yep, as that is what you asked for. The picture you posted may even be a viper.
