Sprint pod filters

installed the sprint pod filters I got from A&J last night. They look pretty good IMO!(sorry about the messy barn)

One installation note for anyone thinking of these is that you have to take the little plastic bracket off between the two throttle bodies. THIS IS A MF'er... I could not get the one screw out because there's not enough clearance to get the short end of the allen key in there. I ended up cutting the bracket it off with my dremel after fiddling with it for an hour or so. I used the screw as a mounting point for the connector that's hooked to the bracket.

Just a thought; the “12 minute tune” might help after replacing the filters.

If you want to get the rest of that plastic mount out one day.

Undo the two band clamps that hold the throttle bodies to the cylinder heads and you can remove them (sort of roll them down and they pop out of the rubbers) then you can move them back and forth enough, with out removing the harnesses, to get at those screws.

I did mine this way (after fighting for a half hour or so, to start with, to try and get the screws out ) and it only added about 15 minutes of extra fitting time.

I cut an Allen wrench down to the appropriate size , and an 1/8th of a turn at a time , got it out. It was painstaking , and probably the worse part of the install. Glad you got it sorted.

It does look good. I got these on Amazon. Probably not as high quality as the Spirits (uses foam, but fits Honda engines so should filter just fine). I've put 1,000 trouble free miles on them.


I like them because they are small, and oval shaped. They did not need me to remove or modify the brackets. I used the left side bracket and screw to hold the temp sensor.


I found them recently in black, but I like the red. I get compliments on the pods.

I've spent my fortune on wine, women, and motorcycles. The rest I wasted on everything else.

Very nice Tron311! I wasn't considering doing the pod filter mod - until now! I think yours is the best style I've seen so far.
A&J you say......

They look great, we usually just remove the throttle bodies from the intake boots and slide them out a wee bit to get that bolt out.
