    Can always buy a K&N or AIRRAID filter and put it on there.

    Go to advanced or autozone places like that they supply K&N or they can order you one. Or you can order one off ebay.

    How much do they run?
    Also, What is proper filter care? I've heard you're to oil them and such?

    Depends on the type you need K&N's run anywhere from 40-60 ive seen. and you wash them out with warm soapy water, let them air dry and they re oil them every year or so. some people do it every few months, some every oil change. Its to your preference.

    I've never oiled the filter I have, but I cleaned it with Simply Green, I soaked it for 20-60 minutes and then rinsed it, and let it dry.

    Which filter would be the correct replacement?
    It is rather cold here in MI, and I don't wanna take it off to measure it.

    The Stack Racing filter is what I have now, and it doesn't seem like it is that good of a filter.

    I think I paid $40 for my K&N at Advance Auto. All it said was 3.5" filter and the depth was exactly the same as what I took out.
