Question Old School Round Air Filter for 5.9?

I am interested in the round air filter that goes right on the throttle body rather than the stock air hat/air box type or cold air intake.

What is that called? Where would I find it? Does anyone have a used one for sale?

Thanks DRAGN. Does that include the whole thing? I mean the "holder" or whatever you call it? It has to be specific for my throttle body no?

Get out of that old school thinking Eric. What might look cool under the hood won't necessarily work that well compared to the alternatives. A round open top or open side air cleaner setup won't give you the better benefit that a cold air intake would IMO. Unless your running a ram air or cowl hood your engine is going to be pulling hot air all the time. Both from the engine and hot air from the backside of the radiator.

Just my 2 cents.

Yes, get the edlebrock small round one. I have it and think it's 12-inches round. It came with a filter that was about 2.2 inches high and fits under the stock hood. Probably around $20. As far as pulling in hot air from the engine bay. it will pull more hot air in than the stock but you really won't notice much difference.

Compared to stock, it will just be a little worse than it used to be.

The thing is..you just spent a fortune on headers and duals to increase your horsepower and now instead of getting a CAI system with a heat wall, you are actually taking a step backwards. I don't get it.

I have a whole write-up on CAI systems and the added horsepower gains published by Performance Improvements. You can read the article when you get here next Saturday for the Mopar Show.

In the meantime..have a looksee here:
K&N High Performance Air Filters, Air Intakes, & Oil Filters
(see air intake kits)

i decided to check my air filter......assuming it was gonna be a paper one. i pull the cover and what do i find.....this big oily black sponge. i think to myself this can't be stock....but you never know. i'm thinking this is an aftermarket re-useable filter, and if it is, the guy who had it before went nuts with the oil because there is a puddle in bottom of the box. what do u guys think??
