air filter replacement (aem sri)

i've researched and researched, pls dn't flame. as said on title, it's for an "aem sri" for an 01 coupe.

i want to replace the air filter and i'm so lost as to how i go by getting one. i went to strauss to go get a k&n air filter since from my understanding, the air filter on the aem are k&n. now i dn't know what the product number is and the people in strauss dn't know ****, like me.
i'm so retarted b/c i dn't even know the size if it's 2.25/2.5" or if it's 3", i just dn't remember.

anyway's ive read about just getting a cleaning kit, but by the look of my intake, it's almost dark gray that i just want to replace it. i would pay the money to be on the safe side. all the help would be greatly appreciated, please

Hey man, well I have an AEM SRI w/ a dryflow filter on it, I'm not sure if that's what you have, but anyway you could get a cleaner and probably be okay (so long as it's dryflow) you can get it at www.tirerack.com. I'm sure you can find a filter replacement online, did you look on aem.com? The cleaner DOES do a pretty good job, my filter was pretty nasty and the cleaner made look new.

yea i really thought about getting the cleaner, but being **** as i am, i would be comfortable to know i have a fresh new filter . . .
crazy as it is i want to get a new filter, mayb that new dryflow filter.

i highly doubt that my filter is a dryflow, i got it before dryflow came out on our cars, i beleive, not sure.

anyways, i do prefer something new and from there i'll maintain it with the cleaner. my mistake was that i never maintained mine and now i want something fresh. i do appreciate your help. any more would be great.

I use K&N filter cleaning kit on my AEM filter. They are not K&N but they are basically the same so...If you do want to go with getting a new K&N, find a Napa auto parts store or somethign, they will have a book of different sizes and styles of K&N filters it will say something like, Diameter = 5", Inlet diameter = 2.5" and length roughly 6".

Yeah, mine isn't a dry flow so if yours is then obviously it doesnt' need to be replaced but if you do replace, def go with the dry flow!
