We need a PART NUMBER for your filter. Particularly whether it'* a MALE or FEMALE flange, and what size it is.

Part number would be best.

Throw it away. That filter very likely flows less than a stock paper filter.

We've found some of those cheap knock-off filters to actually HOLD WATER. No filter for that price will get you any performance.

That one is just as bad, if not worse. Honestly they only have enough airflow for a Honda 4 popper. If you check out the FS section, Hans has a used, beat up looking K&N for sale. Check it out, not sure of the exact condition though.

If that'* your budget, you're best trying a Fram airhog in the stock airbox. A 30 buck filter will hurt your performance, not help it.

the air hogs are just as much as a drop in k&n, sometimes a couple bucks more.

edit- do they even make air hogs any more, i thought they discontinued those and replaced them with the reusable. "synwash", or w/e/ its called.

I got the first production unit of this one. I got wind of it through the Xterra (supercharged) community, and called on it because of the ideal dimensions for the Series 1 L67'* with the double washer bottle. It was the perfect fit with the greatest surface area for that application. Allmachtige and I were the test cars for it, and it'* become quite popular since (about 4 years ago?)

I still have that original unit, but it now lives in the SLE/SC. Is it a collector'* item now?
