Air Filter to pair with my Snorkel Delete

Hi, fellas

I need to know if these will fit my '13 Focus.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A15DTMM40CG6VX

All recommendations are welcome! What is the most suggested replacement drop in air-filter? The K&N?

Thanks all!

I prefer the aem dryflow, it's cheaper and doesn't get oil residue over things around it like the K&N does..also it flows a bit better according to independent tests

Thanks brother! It's added to my cart. I like the fact it's less expensive too.

Here's another to add to your list: http://www.amazon.com/E-9289-High-Pe...ype=automotive

This one is "convertible" with the plug. It has the same performance as the E-2993, but can be unplugged for more audible feedback if you're interested in that.

How is that cheaper? Sorry, just don't understand if it's conversion or what. I got my E-2993 from Canadian Tire for $56 (CAN), I can only imagine it would be significantly cheaper in the US.

Myself, I won't even bother cleaning the K&N, probably just replace it. I know everyone can't justify the cost, but a dry-flow would have to be replaced when it gets dirty, so I'll treat the K&N the same. I'd rather not mess with re-oiling, especially since I don't have much experience re-oiling filters.

What.. dryflow doesnt get replaced, you clean it with a kit and its good to go...you pay all that money for a k&n then throw it away like its disposable... you made of money brother... ive cleaned k&n filters 3 or 4 times (over several year period) before I tossed them (usually from the mesh rubbing on stuff and getting damaged)...its easy as hell, spray a hose (not high pressure) into the filter (from inside out, never other way)..wash away the dirt, spray with cleaner, let it soak in, spray again until filter is whitish in color...let dry completely... spray or apply the k&n oil along the pleats...touch up any white spots..wipe off excess..good to go...not hard

Ah crap, I was wondering if I was missing something. My bad for not researching it first. Thanks for the info.

And no, I'm not made of money, I just get paranoid sometimes :/

I've had K&N panel in my 2001 since I bought it. I probably cleaned it 6-8 times over the years. I pulled it out last year and the silicone seal was cracking, so I sent a quick email to K&N about it and they shipped me a new one free of charge.

I was pretty hardcore with my first k&n panel filter, I even bought filter grease which you apply around the edges of the silcone for extra protection...lmao... what a maroon I was back in 1996
