If you don't mind me asking, are you chasing performance or do you just like the induction noise that a pod filter makes?
Unless the pod filter is shielded from the hot engine bay heat and fed fresh cool air via a CAI, replacing the entire factory airbox with just a pod filter will actually make it perform worse. Sure, it will sound great, but you will lose power and run a greater risk of overheating/heat soak in warmer weather.
Keeping the standard setup and replacing the element with an aftermarket one seems a better option unless you get a whole CAI done with partitioning.
Not having a go at you, just wondering as the engines bays in our cars get extremely hot and wouldnt wanna hear that your engine overheated.
