    A few people make very good dry cotton filters. My favorite would be AEM. They have stock type drop in replacement filters as well as universal cone type filters.

    Just to throw a wrench into your thoughts. Cowl induction & snorkel? Both have the ability to pull cooler air without the risk of coating the filter in mud or flooding it.

    I'm doing cowl on mine eventually...
    I'm kinda sceptical about "cooler air" with the tube going right over the head though...

    I was planning on a scoop opening toward the windshield as I drive in the Pacific NW and don't need that much extra water spraying my engine down.
    So, by pointing it toward the windshield and then adding a small lip and screen on the hood where I cut the hole is to ensure water doesn't sneak past....
    That should drop the under the hood temps.

    Then for the air intake, I was going to redneck a hole on the side that could be modified into a snorkel or capped with louvers...

    Hey now... Google had 12,200,000 results for AEM.

    PS. Would flames shoot out my tailpipe like the Porsche in the pic on their page? That'd be cool.
    ... but the PD would probably ticket me.
    ......... and the O'person in DC would likely pass some sort of anti flames in the tail pipe emissions standards!

    It is a type of dry air filter Big Jim mentioned. It filters well and does not use oil. Washable and reusable. If you just get a of dust on them like we can down here on group trips, you can just shake them out and put them back in.

    I wasnt... He asked a generalized question so I gave a generalized answer.

    "Different construction"
    EX: Different material that doesnt require oil...

    Im pretty sure I remember them making an oiled filter at one point too, they must make only the dryflow now, couldnt find them on their site.

    OK ~ the grownup sized is the air filter (looks a little limp ) on the driver side...
    What's the jr. sized filter on the passenger side?

    Does the filter vibrate on the inside of the fender...
