Default K&N filter

Does anyone know the part number to the cone filter which has connection for the IAT sensor already on it? I am trying to avoid having to drill a hole in rice pipe in order to install it.

RX-4750 Be warned, you're going to need to widen the hole a bit, but its the correct location for the sensor.

Soldering iron would be the best way. Better than drilling,keeps the shavings out

Both times I did it, I used a progressive drill bit to widen it. I lowered the filter on to the spinning bit that way all the crap collected at the bottom. Better that then melted plastic.

To each his own. My first time around, I had a "Randy". Much better IMO.

One other question. What bit size is used to get the best fit for the sensor?
