You have to watch out using other filters that are not supported on the far end, like the OEM and K&N filters are. The band that secures the filter to the MAF housing will not hold the filter forever, and you can't tighten the band enough to do so (the MAF housing will collapse).

I tried this, and ended up with a check engine light, poor idle, and surging throttle. I even started a thread about it.

Seemed like a good idea at the time, since I prefer nano-fiber media over oiled cotton.
