I said goodbye to my Airraid air intake and installed a 2 stage filter system from Mann&Hummel the Europiclon. The main reason was to get the air cleaner and to find a air filter case which is sealed. In this picture you can see a part of the intake from the airraid system:

Image

The white bottle on the left is for the auto gas propane / butane system and is called flashlube. I had to find a new location for that bottle and placed the bottle near the a/c dryer.

Image

After removing the washertank there was enough place for the Europiclon. Nicest thing after removing the washer tank was that there is no rust even after 10 years! Here are some different view shots:

There is still enough place for mounting a smaller washer tank:

Image

You can see in the picture the air inlet on the left side of the Europiclon, i have placed the filter in that direction to maybe mount a snorkel later.. will see. In the middle of the filter is the holder, i´ll fab a bracket when the washer tank will be installed. So far there is no movement of the filter, but it will be better to have that sucker mounted.

Image

For the washer fluid i´ll go with that system:

Image

It´s mainly a small tank with 1.2 Liters, but it will fit between the fender wall and the air filter. If i find another location i´ll add a second one for the headlight washer and the rear wiper washer. I´m installing a Webasto hotshot system for the windshield washers and don´t need the original pump.
Image

A nice part of the Mann&Hummel Europiclon is that it didn´t cost me much. A K&N air intake cost me here in germany about 300€ the Europiclon was only 100€ and is really a nice part. It has two filters and delivers 4-8m3/min so there is no loss of power! Hoping that my throttle body don´t need to be cleaned as much often as in the past.

Wow, love the new filter. I've been absently looking for something like that for a long time now, but haven't found anything just right yet. Where in the world did you find it? In a quick google search, this thread came up surprisingly high on the hit list. I didn't see anywhere I could buy one.

You've peaked my interest.

Was not to difficult to find, it is a german company.. The Partnumber is 45 400 92 941 from Mann&Hummel, many web-shops use this Partnumber too.
Here is a PDF description in english:
http://www.republicsales.com/documents/MANN-Filter/Europiclon_catalog_700_800.pdf
That company website with the PDF is from the states, their contact is here:
http://www.republicsales.com/contact-us/

That seams a Webshop in the U.S with the exact filter like mine:
http://www.mannfiltersrus.com/mann_filters/part_lookup/4540092941/

Bought mine from here, but didn´t know if they ship to the U.S:
http://www.filter-technik.de/w0/45-400-92-941-europiclon-luftfilter.html

Hopefully that helps James. At least if you couldn´t find it in the states i could buy it here and ship it to your address.

It's been only a very casual quest for me so far. Maybe I'll get more serious about it in a year or so. But at least this is archived for the future!

That actually looks pretty purposeful. Plus the company is just down the road in Jersey. Not horrible at $135.
