    Cool Ed! Now you and Ron can compare side by side. But I think his LMS intake looks prettier :p;).

    We can't wait here in Chicago, doesn't seem to want to warm up at all. It's nice having another FX45 around since we both are limited to our mods without going custom.

    w00t! i knew my ears were ringing for a reason. how funny is this? i'm actually on my way to the body shop now to show the guy my engine cover for an estimate. hoping to detail everything soon and get my engine bay all done. i bought NISMO caps for the oil and radiator. (yes, yes. ed told me to do this a long time ago)

    btw, mr. chedman, we can run MAFs anytime you want, punk!

    also, body shop guy doesn't deal with high-temp painting and didn't wanna touch the engine cover at all. guess i gotta find another route now.
     
  11. Reviving this thread. I need a new cone. anyone know where I can buy one? Preferably not the blue JWT one some cheap alternatively like chedman said will work fine.

    What intake do you currently have? If you have the JWT w/ velocity stack, I think the only filter that will fit is the JWT (I have the JWT). But if you have something like the LMS which has a place for the MAF, any cone filter will work. Or if you just have a Z-tube, you can get a MAF adapter and run any filter you want. I got the JWT because it bolts right up to MAF, but I'm about to get a MAF adapter and run a different filter along with extra pipe to get the filter down lower.
     
  13. I dont know what velocity stack is.

    I have JWT Pop Charger in my FX45.

    It's the part the filter attaches to, on the picture it's the metal piece with 4 bolt holes. If you have that, the only filter that fits is the JWT since it is very wide.

    But if you get a MAF adapter like this

    $T2eC16JHJF8FFp-Di2,lBSDr8YkKOQ~~60_35.JPG

    That will bolt onto your MAF where the JWT metal one currently does and allow you to run pretty much any cone filter.

    I think you would as I'm pretty sure all JWT filters are set up that way. Otherwise, I'm not sure how that would connect to your MAF. The JWT picture I pulled is what they show on their site for the FX45. All of their intakes are set up similarly.
