    AK air filter choice.

    Hi all,

    I’m looking at options of an air filter that’ll fit my AK. I’ve got a Chevy 350 with a FiTech EFI and just wondering which ones will fit over the FiTech and also under the standard bonnet scoop. I’ve tried the 14” black Edelbrock one from Real Steel but even if I’d ‘modified’ the bottom of the filter housing with a hammer I wouldn’t get the bonnet shut. Also the FiTech has a different size thread to the standard mounting threaded rod. There are adaptors available from summit racing in the states but also wondering if anywhere in UK sell them too?
    If anyone has this setup which filter did you use or if anyone could offer some advice it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance guys

    Andy

    You will need a dropped base air cleaner to get the clearance needed, you may well have to trim it here and there to clear the carb

    I have a drop base K&N 14” filter (pn#60-1280 - 14”x3”, 1 1/4” drop base) that’ll fit a 5 1/8” flange that I didn’t use in a recent rebuild. Bought originally from RealSteel.
    Open for an offer if this’ll work for you
