Nev,

Just about to order K&N 3x14 inch, so my standard filter will be available soon.

I would try to get a K&N if poss.

Paul, how deep is the filter i have about an inch from the highest point on the Holley, is the K & N washable

Nev,

The 3inch I have is about 2ins above base of Holley and 1inch below, this should work for you but K&N takes air from top as well and I use a RV8 bonnet that gives extra clearance.

Once K&N arrives, happy to let you have my old filter to experiment. The chap I know may order 20 or so K&N's as Dave Vale will prob take some.

I will be in Oxford at end of term in ZS.

I have an Edelbrock carb (500) on a Edelbrock intake with a 2 filter and dropped base. I tried extensively during the winter to get a K & N filter to work. I eventually contacted K & N and the smallest filter they make in a 14 is 2 . They would gladly make one to my specs but the cost was too prohibitive.
