K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

Is there a K&N replacement filter for the AEM V2? And of course I don't mean that there's a K&N filter made for the V2 (unless there is and I just didn't know about it). What I mean is a filter that is pretty much the same size and that I can use to replace the seemingly crappy filter on the AEM. I don't know if the 5th gen AEM V2 has a unique filter size compared to other V2's but I'm specifically looking for a replacement for the 5th gen V2.

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

All v2's have the same size filter which I believe is 4". If you can find a K&N with a 4" diameter then your golden. Most of them are 3.5", and won't fit.

YES there is!!! Bc I'm using a rechargeable K&N filter on my V2!!! Not worth buying a replacement dry flow AEM filter n end up throwing it away. The rechargeable K&N is better and lasts a lot longer especially when you buy the rechargeable kit ($12)!!!

The link under my sig shows my recent work done to the Lude and you'll see in the pics that I have a V2 with a K&N!!!

All I did when I bought my K&N filter was I took off the prev one (AEM dry flow filter) and measured the width of the V2 pipe and temp slapped on the AEM filter til I got to Autozone n told them I want a rechargeable K&N air filter with a "__"inch diameter n the guy gave went and got it for me. Then right there at the lot I yanked out the dry flow n swapped in the K&N n tightened it and that was it really!!!

28 Filters with a 4" inside diameter flange! I'm looking at either the RP-4660 or RP-4930. Woot carbon fiber!

Umm...why not just use the stock AEM filter? You do know it is cleanable/serviceable right? Plus, it does not require any oil.

Yea, are you all taking about throwing them away?

Cleaning kit

If I remember correctly, one of my dry flow filters came with instructions that said something about letting them soak in water for 30 mins and then add a small amount of some household cleaner like soap or somehthing.

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

i dont have my AEM filter anymore, ive had my intake for 4 years. i wore that filter out awhile ago, and have been using crappy autozone filters since. i'd love to get a K&N replacement that will last.

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

I just bought one of these @ advance auto parts... they dont keep the one I need in stock so I gotta wait a few days til I get it

I was gonna get a cf one but they were too long.. I got..RU-2510.. It's only like 3.5 inches long(nohomo) about the same as the aem one.. my s/c pushes the intake up a lil so I dont have much room but this should be a perfect fit

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

Seriously, don't buy that junk from the local auto parts stores. Buy the AEM filter that was meant to be on the car/intake. It doesn't require any oil (no worries for MAP or MAF sensors), plus you really only need to clean them MAX once a year. Cleaning them more often than this will actually DEGRADE the performance, since the filter doesn't reach its peak efficiency until it is loaded up with some dirt.

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

^too late brother.. I bought the K&N and It's already installed..

How is it junk?

I believe it was cheaper than the AEM one.. Which I had on there for 2 yrs and it was shot... U only have to clean the K&N it once a year and they have alot of different sizes incase u need one thats smaller or want one that bigger or carbon fiber or something..

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

Sorry if there was confusion, but I did not mean K&N filters are junk even though I believe there are better ones out there (i.e. AEM, OEM, AMSOIL). I was referring to the filters that auto parts stores such as AutoZone stock on their shelves that are dubbed with "performance" all over the package. You know, the green or bright red cone shaped ones that they have.

This being said, I still do not follow your logic. You said after 2 years the AEM filter was "shot." What do you mean? Physical damage, or because it was super dirty? If it was physically damaged by a foreign object and can no longer function properly (say the filter media was ripped), I understand you buying another filter. But if it was just super dirty, you can wash it!

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

So people say the best dyno result is with stock or type-s intake and a K&N filter. Sounds like K&N aren't junk to me. That is what I'm thinking.

Again, sorry if what I said was confusing, I meant the filters such as Spectre and other cheap filters that places such as AutoZone or Kragen stock on their shelves that are supposed to give you "performance." All said and done, I believe that most filters, even the good ones, are not worth the money. Sure, they can give you probably 1-2WHP MAX, but in all the tests nothing protects the engine better than an OEM or paper filter. I'd choose engine protection over a tiny bump in power. This, of course, is a completely different story if we were talking about an entirely new intake, such as a cold-air system.

More air flow per cubic cm.? Probably. Better dirt protection/trapping? Not even close.

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

While I've seen plenty of flow tests, I've never seen a test on dirt/dust entrapment. Could you point me in the direction of finding one?

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

aem v2 filter sucks. I have one, and ive bought the cleaning solvents after about a year using them and they still stayed dirty. I followed all the rules from the manual on how to use the soap. I'm def not spending another set of cleaning things for the v2 but instead might go with the k&n next time

Sure, I'll try looking for it. Last time I looked it was on the AMSOIL website but I can't seem to find it right now, I keep looking. Although it was possible that it could've been biased, it looked legitimate.

EDIT -- Here is one. http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/airfilter/airtest3.htm

Basically, the paper filter won in dirt entrapment, but not by a landslide like in the other test I saw.
"Well there is a clear pattern on filtration ability compared to both flow and the type of filtration media used. The "high performance" cotton gauze and foam filters do not filter as well as some have claimed."

If your basing the performance of the filter on that fact that when you cleaned it out it was still dirty I would re-clean them properly. Check YouTube, there is a pretty good video on how to clean AEM filters. A good cleaning won't be a simple dip in a water bucket, but a much more involved and time consuming task. Good detergent, patience, and a ton of arm strength is required to agitate all the dirt out.

If it was physically damaged by a foreign object and can no longer function properly (say the filter media was ripped), I understand you buying another filter. But if it was just super dirty, you can wash it!
It was physically shot..and it wouldn't come clean.. I get better gas mileage now and thats important b/c i'm supercharged so I don't get the best mileage anyway. It was good while it lasted but the K&N was cheaper

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

I might be bored enough to test my AEM filter versus a K&N for dirt like this guy did.

Good detergent, patience, and a ton of arm strength is required to agitate all the dirt out.
no i have done the proper procedure.. twice and nothing.. and yes i have even checked the youtube videos to make sure i was doing it right.

Re: K&N Replacement Filter for AEM V2

It's a dead issue guys. There's enough heat in this thread to melt a K&N filter.

And for those who haven't, read the linked page. That is as close to an objective test as you'll find...short of hiring a lab and having them tested in the way that commercial HVAC filters are tested.

I could actually perform these tests considering I have all the instruments to meter airflow/ restrictions.

That would be a pretty nice project! The test results don't lie though. K&N filters may flow better, but what it has to offer in terms of engine protection can very well be improved. Who knows, maybe in the future they will come up with something that flows incredibly well, protect better than OEM-spec filters, and do not require oiling.
