Question Need urgent help with air filter purchase

Hi everyone:
I'm hoping to buy a K&N (or something to that effect any suggestions
are welcome) cone filter for my '96 Impreza 1.8 GL FWD. I would like to
know what model number fits the GL (not RS they don't exist here in Peru),
about how much it costs (here one for Hondas costs about 150$), and where it
can be bought. The problem is, that my mother is the one going to the US,
and i have to ask her to buy it..... so i need precise model number, etc.
She is going to be in San Francisco in some place called El Sobrante, know
any stores in the vecinity? Otherwise what online store can get it to her
quickly, as she will only be there for about 20-odd days. ANY HELP WILL BE REALLY APPRECIATED.
Thanks a lot,

Hey, how is everything down in Peru? Oust that president yet? Anyway,more than likely, you will not find it on store shelves if it even exists. Go to this website www.subaruparts.com, and make sure it exists and if it does, order it and have it sent to the place your mother is visiting. It only take a few days to get there from Washington. More than likely, you won't find it in the stores. Good Luck!

I just emailed a guy with a 1.8...maybe he can help you, but when does your mother go home? I know the time element is very important. I don't think you are looking for a stock filter, but an aftermarket cone type...is this true?

Yeah, that's about right.



I hope you weren't talking about me since I don't have a 1.8 -- that's used to be all Joel but I think Andy has the torch for now.

Anyway, all Impreza intakes pre-2000 are basically the same. A drop-in replacement filter would be the same as a Nissan Sentra or Maxima, or any Impreza. Then again your model MAY be different, so you want to double-check this information to make sure. Chris at Drakenparts doesn't seem to think it will fit: http://home.cdsnet.net/~zastava/prod...werfilter.html

Then again if you were going to go with a cone filter and custom pipe and all that jazz, anything goes. Everything just attaches to the throttle body, and I believe yours is the same size as ours (you might want to measure the inlet outer diameter for comparison).

Sorry I couldn't be of more specific help, these are just my guesses...

Hi everyone, well indeed its a cone filter i'm after, though not necessarily with the whole intake(expensive, and bulky for the suit case). Thanks, any other ideas and help is still welcome.
