I need to buy the type of filter on the left.


I bought my car with an AEM cold air intake system already on there. We looked at the air filter and it was black, so my dad automatically said it was dirty. But the filter has that long neck. My dad used a filter cleaning agent on the thing, but now the rubber looks warped on the filter. (And I don't remember if it was that way before we messed with it or not.)

I need to know where I can buy a 3 inch diamenter AEM air filter with that long neck.

There's a number on the filter that's 60-90103. So I don't know. I tried AEMs site, but I can't find the type of filter with the long neck.

eBay would be the first place I'd check.

Ugh.....

The air filter is obviously by AEM, why would they have stopped producing it?

you don't have to have that type of filter for you AEM CAI, you can just pick up a 3" opening K&N filter and it'll still work perfectly fine

Re: I need to buy THIS type of filter (but where?) (urgent)

Well on the cold air intake, the AEM sticker does look like it was slapped on... So I really don't know what type it was. But it WAS an AEM filter. We managed to put that back on. (the original warped one) So soon we will just have our local mechanic buy an air filter and have HIM put it on. Yeah I know waste of money but given our circumstances, we can't put any other type of filter on (unless it's a long neck.)

Re: I need to buy THIS type of filter (but where?) (urgent)

if you cant find the filter i doubt your mechanic can find one. try finding an extension piece or something. or just buy a whole new CAI they are like 30 bucks on ebay lol.

Re: I need to buy THIS type of filter (but where?) (urgent)

My best suggestion is to abandon hope of finding an AEM replacement, since it already seems that you've looked around. After you come to terms with that, go to www.knfilters.com. Search for a product by Dimension. Take some measurements of your filter and see if they have something that works. I've put K&N's on my Mazda (now dead) and I have a drop filter in the lude. They're good and the recharge kit is inexpensive, easy to use, and works. Like SpiritCrusher said they are expensive, but they also have a warranty and only really need cleaning every 50k miles or so.

I would have seached the K&N site, but as I don't know what dimensions you're looking at, it would have been wasted time.

Hope you figure it out...Just be mindful of vapor lock.
