MG MGA - HS6 Carbs and air filters
My MGA is starting to finally get there. I have fitted a set of HS6 carbs with matching manifold as I've got a 2.1L under the bonnet.
My problem now is finding a set of K&N filters to fit. There are plenty of sets around for the HS6 carbs, but they all seem to be centre mount, whereas I seem to need them offset to clear the top of the engine bay (the centre mount are too high and rub up against the top).
I realise that If I'd put H6 carbs and a suited manifold, that wouldn't be a problem, as the H6 manifold has a 20 degree upward slope, whereas the HS6 manifold has a 30 degree upward slope.
Has anyone out there had / resolved this little glitch, and if so, could you spare a hint / part number for me?
Many thanks in advance,

Standard offset filters, but not sure which direction!(Bottom left of page A25: HS6 offset mounting 45mm 1 3/4” deep. . .KN56-9132. . .45.95)
maybe this cone shape:
If they are not suitable then you can buy two blank filters and position the holes exactly where you need, see bottom of page:
thanks for those. I've got the cone ones at the moment (came with the cards), but they just don't look right. 56-9132 looks interesting, but I was really after something a bit deeper.
