I was wondering if anyone had any pros or cons to using a paper filter in an original air cleaner? If so what what manufacturer and part #. My car is 100% stock with the exception of riveted ball joints and spiral shocks.
Thanks ,

I've modified my original 55-air filter by removing the original oil screen, and allowing for a K&V filter. The outer screen is still there maintaining the "original" look. An approximate 4 x 4 K&V runs inside the cannister. This should provide more filter area and less pressure drop across the intake.

Ecklers (classicchevy.com) has filters that fit inside of the original air cleaners I have one in my 56, works fine.
