    Paper cleaners flow pretty good when new and they are cheap. Also, there are lots of K&N clones out there that cost less.

    paper, easy to replace, and cheap to replace.
    K&N, washable million mile warentee, you simply wash it when it gets dirty, but are you up to it?

    Here's a cheap trick for ya if you're running low on cash. Just buy some 1/4-20 threaded rod, then stack 2 paper filters on top of each other. Or check out the paper filter that came on some of the GM trucks in the 80's. They're the same diameter as the other ones, but are 5 or 6 inches tall, instead of the standard 2 or3 inches tall. Either will fit in the stock air filter housing, but the lid obviously won't close against the bottom any longer. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Oh yeah, make SURE that the new setup will clear before ya slam the hood the first time. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif If the new setup is too tall you can dent the hood and bust the carb. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif But there's usually lots of room under the hood of our rigs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
