    Correct...the P5s do not have an cabin air filter.
    Go here and get 5% off your order from Redline Shifter Boots and other leather goodies (e.g. steering wheels, armrests, e-brake boots).

    I believe theman did a how-to for this

    2003 P5 46k miles KLDE motor with JDM tranny swap w/ lsd, Tien struts and Tien S springs, custom intake, Vibrant muffler with silencer
    It runs off magical fairy dust, and little gremlins live in my engine.

    things to do forge engine, t3/t4 turbo, intercooler, turbo manifold, new haltech tune, new wideband O2 sensor and gauge, new oil sandwich plate, and clean up my wiring a little more, A/C compressor and lines, and a little extra (thinking about deleing fog lights and using holes as possible ram air till i turbo it, or making a scoop driver side behind the lights) and lighting effects

    Interesting, I wonder if the filter is thick enough in it to do the same thing I just got thru doing on my truck.....cut up an adjustable electrostatic washable house filter and made washable cabin air filter for my truck. Hmmmmm, I may have to look into doing this when I get caught up on other projects and/or get bored. Searching out that thread......................and here it is, yes he did......................

    Don't be scared when you first start reading the thread, there is a shortcut further into the thread. Looks to be about 50.00 of parts and an exacto knife to gittit done...........
