MG MGB Technical - k&n filter mod
|can anyone point me to the webpage on how to do the K&N filter conversion using 2 separate k&N filters and the original stub stacks. (not the k&n's with alloy baseplate.|
Try this - I followed the guidelines and it worked out fine.
|It seems like a lot of effort, especially when the stub stacks are relatively inexpensive. The full kit with the K+N stub stacks will cost about £100, and considering the filters themselves will be around £80 it would make more sense to go for the 2 1/2 inch deep straight (not conical) filters and get much better airflow.|
The stub stacks are already in the Cooper Cans and my pair of K&N's cost $60US total from LBC Co. The other parts are minimal cost.
|The stub stacks are part and parcel of the OE Coopers base plates for each carb's OE filter assembly. It may not look like the stereotypical airhorn/stubstack, but it is indeed and serves that function very well. And, as BJ implies, if you already have them they are a no cost, no effort way to seal the carb end of the filter (which they have been doing all along) and provide decent airflow into the carb.|
|thanks for the address barry|
seems K$Ns are alot cheaper over your side of the pond. Ones i have seen here are circa £35 each and about £8 for each stub stack.
