Air for Edelbrock
#1
Hi all you experts out there -- I do not like my oval aftermarket air inlet filter etc. 
I'd prefer the round one ....I'm not running dual quads just a single edelbrock 4v  500 CFM

waddya think?

Are you looking for a factory set up or just a round aftermarket?

What is best - "ford racing circular"  ?  ... I just think this oval thing looks too whacky .....a bit over the top

Yes. I think the Oval ones are an "acquired taste" so to speak. Take a look through the threads below for some ideas. K&N and I believe Summit private label offer some performance oriented air filters with additional surface area on the top.

Might be worth a trip up the road along the A5 to Stateside autos. Rich has a good stock in and also a ton of used parts out back

I went with an Edelbrock. Same "design" as the K&N for a lot less money and it had a dropped base which I needed. I also wanted a plain look, no ribs, writing, etc.

I’m with Ed, I also like that style of air cleaner. I got mine off eBay pretty cheap.

Hi 
very much appreciated guys 

I think functional and proportional round one is better - I'm not trying to pick up satellite TV like this oval thing is

Here is my current set up. Due to distributor I am running I had to go with a slightly smaller diameter.

What about a triangular edelbrock elite 4222? It can be turned so the pointy end is facing the front or back of the engine. Edelbrock and K&N do smooth chromed finish versions as well.
