    if you are running the stock carbs, there should be one filter in a box right in between the two.

    Do you have to use the box or can you use two little air filters on each carb?

    You will either have to:
    Learn as much as you can so you don’t destroy your engine, or
    Pay someone to do it properly for you........
    VW mechanics are few and far between, so please be careful......
    Check your other thread for further advice;)
    Cheers,
    Mark

    Stick with the stock system.
    Works well with the solex carbs .
    Paper filters retain good airflow longer than foam type and the pleated box types have a big surface area.
