Did you specify a twin-carb engine? I ordered mine over the Interweb and described the engine and carburettor types in the comments box. You may have got a filter for a single carb engine. Does the baseplate have a Weber 36 IDF pair of holes or a single rectangular hole for a Weber 32 DIR?

I can't remember what my part number was, but it sounds like you need the same set as I have. If the one filter you have is definately for a 36 IDF then you need to get onto K&N and ask for another one (you did order a pair?). My set came to something like £100, and the performance specialists will argue that they don't breathe as well as Pipercross or ITG, but the chrome looks nice and they sound good :thumbs:

hi lauren
i went through the list, and it said ,bolt on kit for 1500 sud panelfilter, so i presumed i would have to take the original panel filter and box out, and bolt on two filters, it cost £50 no base plate with it, just is like an oval shape with a jubilee clip, i spoke to euro car parts and they said i need to order another one ,but if its a kit for my car surly it should come with both filters supplied

You need to specify that you want two seperate filters.The K+N panel filter is usually the one that sits inside the original air box.:rant: I got mine from Demon Tweeks,not cheap at over £40 each but worth it for the noise:thumbs:Don't forget to get some trumpets for inside the filters,otherwise they CAN restrict airflow at high r.p.m.:D

I'm wondering if the filter is designed to fit the oval mouth of the 90° cast aluminium elbows that the centre box attaches to. When you remove the clips and rubber bands from each side of the factory air filter box you are left with radiused inlets siamesed into a single oval intake. If that's the case, you will need two, one for each elbow.

"Different" at least :thumbs: The typical fitment is to remove the elbows from the top of the carbs and mount the filters directly to them. I'm not sure how much better, or worse, such an induction setup would be, but I suppose it does allow you to keep the breather pipes for the PCV system...

The choice is yours Melv!

IMO the best set up is to get the ones you bolt directly on the carbs. You do need to get some trumpets. Other wise you will loose som hp. Even the standart ones are better than nothing.
