    Hello, anyone have any suggestions on a good cheap performance air filter that will fit in the stock housing on a 1970 Plymouth Road Runner 383? I found the
    aFe Pro Dry S Air Filter Elements 11-10022 but it is rather expensive at $50. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    This is going to sound crazy, but, the highest flowing filter is a new paper filter.
    After that, the after market filters have the ability to maintain there flow over a longer period of time even when dirty. Considering there reuses me, $50 is a bargain over the long term.

    I paid $40-something for a K&N. It is still in use some 20 years later.

    The better they "perform", the less they filter.

    Perhaps the better they filter the less they perform?

    That's another way to look at it.
