CAI filter replacement

Has anyone had to replaced their CAI filter? I have a JLT CAI & my filter got damaged & I bought a "Speed By Spectre" filter to replace it. Was just wondering if anyone has used them before or what other options are there? I got it from auto zone btw!

honestly you won't find much difference between hi-flow filter brands. Spectre makes a decent cone filter for the money...just clean and oil it like any other oil based filter

Everyone's different. Your car, your choice in filter.
