Fitting a cone air filter

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

This is my first post on this forum so I hope I'm doing it right!

I am switching my '52 plate Arosa to a cone filter. I understand that I will be removing the air filters from the box. I have also purchased a small filter: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Air-Filter-Oil-Breather-Cold-Small-Mushroom-Intake-Crankcase-Turbo-Car-Vent/163689109250?hash=item261ca19702:g:1XgAAOSwUYpc2nHv to go on a breather pipe. My concern is that there are multiple pipes going into the box so what do I need to do with each of them? Which pipe is the oil breather requiring the smaller filter? 

Thank you in advance.

PS. I know that this will not benefit the car's power output. I only want it louder :) Also it's my first car so still a bit of a noob!

Okay so I’ve found out that I need to put the small filter on the pipe that’s on the left of the air box. What do I do with the other two pipes on the right? Shall I leave them connected to the air box?

Catch can.

Don't forget to post how many BHP you lose by fitting this :)

Thank you for your reply. Do I connect the catch can to the left pipe and then link it to the 2 on the right as well? 

Also is it possible to use a filter instead of a catch can? 

Cheers

Take a photo, I'm struggling visualise. Not owned a 1.0 in ages.

I'm confused by the question..... what filter?

Okay so I understand the oil breather is the one on the left. I believe I can either use a catch can OR a small breather pipe filter.

My main question is if I ran it with a filter on the left pipe, what would I need to do with the two small pipes on the right?

And when I say I will connect a filter to the oil breather pipe, I will most likely ensure it is further down underneath the engine so fumes are forced out away from the cab. 

Thank you for your replies
