Yes, it can fit straight onto the air flow meter. You will need to fit a bracket and that can bolt to the battery tray where the factory air cleaner bolts.
Down side is that you will be drawing air from inside a hot engine bay. If it's for practicality then a better pannel filter and cold air ducting, if it's for looks then choose a pretty colour

Has anyone measured the filter area of the pannel and the area of the pod?

Practical

Yes practical i think is the magic word for me!! i like the look of the pod filters but i guess it doesnt make all that much difference either way, hahaha i just like the look of something big fat and shiny that sucks under my bonnet . So you think using a pannel filter and run some bigger intake piping would be just as good
