Default Which Air Filter for a DIY cold air box

Hey Guys,

I want to build a cold air box in my NBB model.
To prevent buying a filter thats to big or to small, can you post pictures for me of your diy air filter box and....... the number of the K&N filter you used.
Why a K&N? It's easy for me to order. Most other brands from the states I can't order here in the Netherlands.

Thanks for your pictures.




note: I did some search, but I did not find what I'm looking for. Probably caused because I'm not a english native speaker. :(

Links to usefull threads are also very welcome.

You could use a K&N Apollo kit. It is rated for up to 300 HP applications, comes with tubing so you could run you air intake anywhere.

This is a picture how things are looking now:


The apollo kit is a option, but I still have about 20" of 3" exhaust pipes that I can use so a universal (eg oval) filter and some alu sheet for my diy cold air box seems a bit cheaper.
