Hi All -
Recently obtained a gt500. Came with a c&l cold air intake. Not the biggest fan of oil filters. Is it possible to replace just the filter itself with a dry filter? If so, which is the correct part /number /model / brand?

thanks

Welcome to the forum! I went with a dry blue Airaid filter on my 2011. You don’t have to worry about oil messing with the MAF sensor. As for size, measure your intake opening diameter and length allotted and check out their site.

Yes, just the filter can be replaced.

Click the products tab, under induction you'll find " build your own filter ", gives a nice pic of how filters are sized..

i’ve never had a GT 500 but I know it’s caused issues with past vehicles that I’ve had so I’d rather stay away from that. which side are you referring to, to see?

Maybe I missed it? I can’t find just a filter. I can if it’s the original air box. I see their entire CAI but not just the CAI (after market filter)

Unless you find one that says it fits your specific CAI, pull off your filter and measure it. You need the i.d., width and length for the most part. I'm assuming you have a conical filter.

As catmonkey said, measure your filter and then go to Airaid’s website to see if they have one that will work.

It has been years since I did this, but from what I recall, you need to measure the outside diameter of your intake tube where the filter will be attached to (go over). Also measure the length available for a filter. Those are the 2 numbers you need.

You may need to measure the width at the bottom of the pleats near the inlet. You could have a filter that's to wide to fit in the heat shield confines.
