200TDI swap air filter box ideas

Before I got my truck, someone very hastily swapped a 200TDI. I've been slowly chasing down all the issues over time as you guys have seen. Now it's time to address the air filter situation...

The swapper left the 2.25 diesel oil bath filter. That's got to go. I have seen many different installations and ideas. I want something that uses a factory filter, so that it can be replaced easily in the future. So cone filters and that type of stupidity are out. I may want to add a snorkel in the future, so that's a consideration.

Here's my current setup:



Anyone have any ideas that they feel are pretty slick?

To start with DO NOT use an oil bath air cleaner.
I used an air filter from a 1993 Chrysler New Yorker.
It tucks under the left wing nicely.

Also 80s era GM V6 vehicles use a small round air filter about 1/2 the size of the oil bath unit.

I reused me 2.5NA filter but had to fab up an "L" shaped bracket to mount it.

That turned out really nice Dave, but Danny doesn't have a 2.5NA filter.
He has an oil bath.

That is certainly better than my current horrorshow.

I found on the glencoyne website. Apparently an early disco air filter.

I bet somebody on the board has a 2.5NA filter housing to give away or sell cheap. How many guys here have yanked out that lump for a TDi?

I would like to fix the (300tdi) housing up on the left wing.

But I'm not quite sure about what our surveillance agency will tell me, the next time when showing my car?

But I'm pretty sure this way of locating the airfilter is in use!

I really dislike the stock 200tdi air filter canister. If there was something half as large I would buy it in a heartbeat.

I'm sure that between Newman and Dave you can arrive at a solution, but you could consider a 200tdi air filter housing and factory mounting bracket. That what I went with when I did my 200 swap. It looks similar and might be the same as a 2.5 but that's for the experts to determine.

The factory 200TDi filter housing is way bigger than the 2.5NA and the defender model is pretty rare to find with the mount. If you are going to snorkel the air box thru the wing top like I did the 2.5NA housing is absolutely the way to go in my opinion.

Let see if I can accurately show what I did without taking things apart. I welded up and "L" shaped bracket with a second sloping piece attached (think ramp that is higher in the back so the filter sits nose low). The front attaches to the left of the intercooler using one of the bolts that I believe holds the inner fender in place. It is the bolt under the two ground wires:


The back mounts to another inner fender bolt. I used this cross piece to mount the relays for the electric fan. I need to order more loom to wrap the wires you see.


Here is the underneath area where it ramps up. I threaded a big jubilee clamp thru the gap and that is what holds that air cleaner in place:


Here is the completed hose setup to the turbo:

But forgot to clean up the left side mount till Uncle Douglas pointed it out, LOL. Any guess what my next project is and yes, those are hood pins.


Feel free to hit me up with any questions you might have.
