Dry Cone Filters

Anyone have a part number for a dry cone filter for a T7 9-3?

I looked on AEM, AFE, and Amsoil but cant find a universal dimensions search.

Please help!

If you go to your local auto parts store they sell aem or something like that cone filters that include several different size adaptors for like 30.00. That is what I put on my car.

I just picked up my Amsoil Cone filter yesterday.....its EaU3051 (same as K&N RU-3580). Its got a 3" flange, the base is 5", the top is 4" and its 6" long. This is the same dimensions as the filter Nick uses on the GS cone filter set up.

The flange on the GS T7 Intake filter is 3.5" not 3".

Is the Amsoil filter a dry filter the likes of AEM?

Yes they have a line of dry filters that they offer in a variety of conical shapes. They also offer pre filters (socks) to trap large particulate before entering the pleats of the filter.

I have measured the filter many times with a vernier caliper. The filter that was supplied with my GS intake has a flange opening of 3.5". Additionally, my MAF is 3.25" (without bands) and 3.5" (with two bands).

Have you installed or test fitted this filter yet? The length of the 3051 flange is much longer than the GS filter flange(1.75" vs .75"). Just worried that you might have some fitment issues against the inner fender in regards to total filter length.

The clear and VERY SIMPLE answer for anyone planning on replacing an aftermarket filter with a different aftermarket filter would be to go out to your car and measure on your specific car.

We could sit here and watch people with two different versions of an open air intake system go back and forth about the size (which is entertaining, but potentially confusing), or we could suggest that a person should be sure to measure for themselves to be sure!

EaAU3051 is the exact same size as my K&N RU-3580....this is actually the same filter off the GS T5 filter setup, not the T7...my bad. Fit without any issue...same as the K&N

Just curious, what is the is the:
Flange Length?
Filter height (w/o flange)?
Filter base diameter?
Filter top diameter?
....on the T7 GS filter?

That setup looks really good. Where does the cone end up? Behind the spotlight? Is that a K&N filter? Part no. please?
