Airfilter..

Post #1 by mavchick » Thu Jun 12, 2008 3:23 pm

I'm thinking about buying this air filter off the ford six parts website..
Has anyone used this yet?

I'm also thinking about getting a dress up package. But I don't need the valve cover because I already have one.

What do you think?

The dress up kit is nice, but neither one of the air cleaners will fit your stock one barrel carb. They are designed for 2 barrel or 4 barrel carbs. :wink:

Aww that stinks! Thanks for telling me before I bought it.


Can you recommend any nice ones? I can't seem to find one.
Perhaps I should just switch to a two barrel carb?

I also made the mistake of putting a Mustang valve cover on mine, but I made it work.

I got this one from Mustang's Unlimited, but I had to modify it to make it fit. The opening in the base for the carb was too small...but I was able to make it work. :wink:
