Dinan air filter
 
Anyone know where i can get a replacement Dinan filter and sock other than Dinan? They want $40 for the filter and $30 for the sock and $30 FOR SHIPPING and I am not about to pay that. Its free shipping over $100 but i'm not going to buy another filter just for the sake of it.

Just buy a k&n that's the same size. That's what I did.

After installing the Dinan Intake I noticed throttle response improved and the car pulls nicely to red line. I hear more of a sucking or vacuum sound from the engine. We had to mold some plastic. There was a little gap with the snorkel that fits to the stock air box. Overall, fitment was very good.

Advance auto. Model number is Ru-3130
It fits perfectly and is a bit narrower for some additional clearance.

No sock. That thing is pointless
