Question Filter used for $25 Stealth CAI

I think I am ready to go ahead and do the stealth cold air intake everyone talks so highly about. I have a post on another forum showing how to do it, but I was wondering what filter I should use, based on what gives decent performance and is cheap (K & N is a little expensive for the "$25" cai"). What have you guys used?

Stealth Mod to a PZEV Duratec can be done as a true CAI or the "hot air intake" SRI (short ram induction) version.

$25 mod was when K&N cost in that range.

yeah when did the stealth intake first get a write up? I bet it was at least 8 years ago now. Prices will have surely increased by then.

Top of the line green filters go for $50+ and even more for the ITG foam style ones. I think Spectre or Vibrant make decent ones for around the $20-30 dollar price range and will do the trick. K&N should still be reasonably priced too but little more than those brands
