    The SPT filter isn't blue anymore.... but it still works just as well. Maybe they make another brand cleaning/oiling kit that is blue instead of red?

    It's a cotton gauze filter... exactly the same as K&N. Just make sure you get some MAF cleaner and spray the MAF every time you clean the filter. Also make sure you don't get anxious and run the car while its still wet with oil. Let it dry first..... otherwise you will have MAF issues.
    Do you happen to know the product number of the K&N air filter you are using. I picked up a 3" cone high flow one and it was just a tad too long to fit in the engine bay. Any help would be appreciated.
