    its time to change the air filter on my car , judging from the fact that it was caked in leaves im pretty sure the previous owners didn't change it very often, anywho i was wondering if i went ahead and got a stock k&n cone filter if it would bolt right on to a aem intake system that i want later down the road, i hav a 96 integra gsr i forgot to mention that

    Doesn't AEM use K&N, and can't you wash them? I washed my old one.

    You have a pipe right? Measure the end of the pipe. That is the size that you need.

    I belive that AEM does use K&N, but they do have AEM on the rubber part.

    You are correct...for whatever reason, they put AEM on them, even if it's a K & N.

    your GSR uses K&N filter E-2427
    it will fit over the end of an AEM... you might need to stretch it a bit ... but it will fit

    fuck the AEM CAI

    get the K&N for your car
    then upgrade the intake piping with just about any short ram intake out there
    rip off the resonator from your stock airbox and drop a snorkle down to the cold air area (into the front of the wheelwell where a CAI would put the filter)

    there ya go homemade "icebox" type setup
