Replacement Air Filter

PostPost by: simonknee » Mon Dec 29, 2003 6:30 pm

Hi all,

I want to replace my scrap of PiperX foam with a K&N or Green Cotton filter.
Problem is neither company's web site has proper lists of dimensions.

I want to continue to use the airbox and orignal style ducting (quieter and colder).
I also want to feed the breather back in at the filter too so want an integral 'T' too.

Has anybody done this and know which K&N or GC filter part number to use?
Or is there any other web resource for these filters NOT based around car model.

I'll call Green Cotton in the New Year but it's holidays at the mo'

Hello Simon,

I have found that the K&N replacement filter element E-2473 is a perfect fit in the standard Elan air filter assembly 26S 0704. Hope this helps.
