Default DIY F6A EFI K&N Chrome AIR FILTER for under 700 pesos!!! (Now with PICS)

If your like almost every zuki owner out there, you know its almost impossible to find an air filter for our f6a EFI engines. I have an f6a rear mounted engine and i recently installed an nifty chrome power air filter on my zuki baby...and i spent only about six to seven hundred!!!. It just takes a little time lang. While i was shopping at my local BLAZE auto store at SM, i noticed they had a huge engine exhaust tip. It is about three inches in diameter at one end and tapers down to about two to two and a half inches on the other end. I then grabbed one of their after market air filters, put it on top of the three inch opening, and bamm!!...i had my own power air filter. (when searching for the exhaust tip, the filter fits exactly on the big opening, there is only one filter tip there ata that fits.) I just hoped the other end would fit in the ruber boot adapter on my throttle body. With a little motor oil to lube it up and a little pwersa, you should be able to muscle it on(TIP...take off the boot adapter on your throttle body to make it easier to slip on). Oh and make sure they weld everything on the bottom of the tip so from the top when lookin at the engine it still looks nice and shiny. Anway before i installed it on my engine i went to my local muffler shop so they could weld a small metal nipple to the underside of the muffler tip and a flat metal bracket. The nipple is for the blowby hose (make sure to show them the air filter box so they use the same size for the nipple). As for the metal bracket they just used a flat metal bar. just make sure it lines up with the hole where the previous air filter box attached to. just buy a nut and bolt to secure it. Anyway after installation the engine sounded a lot nicer and i could tell i gained a few more horses. Well hope this helps guys!!!

Sir ZukiDelight,

Thanks for the tip, but would greatly help if you could take some pictures on your new air filter to give us some idea.

Thanks

here are a couple of snaps of my intake. the last picture is from the bottom. You can see the bracket and nipple for the hose welded to the bottom. Oh and i recommend you take off the rubber boot from the throttle body and take it to the store. Just to make sure you get the size right. enjoy

Thanks for the pics sir ZukiDelight!! it looks great, I'll drop by to blaze one of this days and get me one of those power filters.

Just one concern though, what if on rainy days, is there any chance that the filter might get wet? since the engine bay is open below and the filter might get splashed with water, specially here in the streets of manila where it gets flooded easily and also the potholes.

yeah i was worried about that too at first. dati i was able to wade in water up to my bumper. Last rainy season i drove around with my new filter in floods to about half of my rim and thankfully i had no problems. Basta its normal rainy driving it should be fine. also they sell a filter at blaze that has a plastic cone covering the filter media. feeling ko this might protect water from coming in better than the one i got. The one i have as you can see is just exposed lang. just a couple hundred pesos more ata. good luck

sirs congrats. yup that's the problem only when you're wading through the water. i guess you need also to install a heat deflector so as not to absorb the heat from the engine.

Default Air filter

I don't know if we have the same set up, but my air filter has a plastic
casing. BTW mine is F6A 12V EFI van. My air filter is a little bit longer than
the casing but it can be closed tight. The diameter is somewhat small I think
but we can't be sure since we don't have the original one. Here are some pics.
