Default FRAM AirHog worth recharging?

The air filter originally in the car when I got it was a FRAM Air Hog, it'* really dirty... but I kept it. I replaced it with one of those junk FRAM paper filters, because I don't have what I need to recharge the Air Hog. My question on this is, should I recharge the Air Hog, or pay $65 for a K&N drop in and get a recharge kit for later?

Comparison pic of the filters... the paper filter has around 350-450 miles on it so far.

$65 for K&N... where u buying that from that Seems like A LOT of $
Normally they are around 40-50

I would get a K&N. Fram just doesn't seem to care about making quality products

Well, I haven't made the effort to go to the stores in town personally, but online at all the stores I have in town they're $65, even the non-K&N Napa has is $65 (Mr. Gasket).

Check ajusa.com. You can get one for 51.50. Not sure what shipping to your zip would be..

Look up part # 33-2086 under "performance parts"

See, that'* the thing, I searched the site after doing the part # and the only K&N filter that comes up fitting is the OIL filter. Though, seeing as how you have a '92 SE I can take your word for it :P.

EDIT!! I typed AIR instead of OIL, correction in bold.

Um, why not recharge the air hog? I've run both K&N and Airhogs, both seem the same to me. Just clean and re-oil what you have and save a little coin.
