Here's a view of our air filter, as well as the airbox. The airbox view is looking forward from the left rear wheel well with the wheel off the car and the wheel well liner removed. You have to do that to change the air filter. I have a few K&N filters coming in and I'll find one that fits...it could be the GT-S filter, but I'm not sure. In the air box pic you can see where the panel slides in. The snorkel thing on the LHS is visible through the driver's side air intake behind the door.

Stan, in the U.K. a lot of the Elise owners seem to change over to Hurricane airboxes, do you have any thoughts/comments on whether or not this or similar mod would be worthwhile for the Fed Elise ?

Thanks, Mike

I'm sure it would be worthwhile. The stock air path has a number of turns, passes through corrugated tubing, has some rough edges and so forth. In my case I likely won't do it though since for SCCA purposes in stock class I cannot. But I can change to a different air filter panel. Check the thread titled "Stock Paper Air Filter VS K&N: PIC and Test"
