One more air filter question

Ok this might be crazy, but I was thinking about air filters and had a question. On my 06 f250 the airaid cold air filter is fairly large. What would a smaller filter do? Or maybe a different shape filter? I'm looking because I am going to buy a second filter so I can swap them out while I'm cleaning the other. Any ideas? What have y'all done?

just check the cfm's on the other filters you're thinking about, that would be the easiest thing


cause a smaller filter might flow more than a larger filter, depending on what it's made out of, or if its a better filter all around

i think the k&n would be ok. a lot will tell you horror stories of 'dusted' turbos, but then again i think its what environment you drive in. if its on road city type driving i think it wouldnt be any harm, but dusty conditions i would stay away from k&n. i know a few guys that run k&n's on their DD and have had no problems.
