Cleaning air filter

I have an air intake kit that came on my truck. The filter is very dirty and I need to clean it but I dont know what kind of kit it is and the sticker label is faded and worn away. It is a purple filter that looks likes a k&n but in the picture of the k&n kit online the filter is an oval cone and mine is just a cone filter. I know it is an oiled filter so I was wondering if the recharge kits are all different? I was just thinking of picking up a k&n recharge kit and giving it a go but dont want to if it will ruin the filter, thanks

My guess it probably is a AFE not 100 percent sure though. K&N are red. But I use a recharge kit on my Airaid so I dont think there are any differences. If anything you just buy another filter later.

All the filter oils are pretty much the same. Just buy the oil and clean your filter with dish soap and hot water, let it air dry, re oil and install
