View Full Version : ITG panel filter - Q's.

27th July 2000, 16:34
Fitted one today, feels "uncanny" to fiddle with these things... http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif

It's either me or the filter didn't seem to fit quite as good as the original paper one.

When I put it in, and snapped the "lid" on, it seemed as if the lid pushed the filter "upwards" somewhat.
I removed and reinstalled the filter a couple of times, and it did this every time, so I guess it's the way it should be.

Has there been any MAF's failing with the ITG?

I know what you mean. It took me longer to fit the filter than it did to fit the SS backbox. But it sounds like you've got it fitted correctly.

I have heard no reports of any problems with the ITG filter.

I agree with Dave, when I fitted mine,it didn't seem to go in right, but I've been running it for a while without problem.

Thanks guys!

I let my local dealer check my installation, and they said Ok...so I won't loose any sleep over it...

had one on for a few weeks. no mess no fuss, but fitting can be tricky (not a fault of the ITG, purely the panel box)

unless u want an induction kit it comes with my recommendations http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif

Hi Lee!

Still grinning from the recent family "addons"?


How's that Blitz working, no problems yet? It's still on my wishlist...but the little lady said "isn't it very expensive - it's just an air filter???"...so that was that.

Soundwise...is it bearable on long runs?

grinning yes, sleeping no !

blitz is nice http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif makes no extra noise over normal until you are at about 5psi boost. Then the audio begins.

Pricey but its the only one you'll need I guess.

I inspected my ITG over the weekend - the tight fit is just making sure the rubber makes a good seal and stops air getting in where it shouldn't.

After 20'000km's downstream from the filter is spotless - although some of the "gunk" the filter is impregnated with has collected in the bottom of the airbox, but this is the unprotected side and is no problem.

Interesting to note - after removing my resonator box maybe 5'000k's ago - had to clean the filter of a lot of dead flies, sticks and insects!!

Definitely needs to be more a regular cleaning interval if you've no resonator!

Secret Agent Man,

Right up until the point you mentioned you had got your dealer to check I was convinced you had encountered the same problem I had.

For anyone else attempting the filter replacement, especially on an MY00, keep an eye on the 'tabs' at the lowest part of the lid. I found they naturally try to slip inside the filter housing rather than sitting into their correct 'recepticles' on the outside of the box. This caused the filter to exactly do the things decribed above. Took a while to work out what was going wrong as it needs a reasonable amount of effort to get it in the correct place. Once you get the tabs located though the filter fits perfectly http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/smile.gif.
