So you saying you have an AFE set up with a K&N replacement filter?

IMHO the easiest thing to do would be a 6637 style air filter. Great filtration, good flow (supports over 400rwhp) and long life filter.

A 6.0 air filter is a great filter but would require bit of work to fit and would look a little mickey mouse.

I am no expert, but all of the AFE intakes I have seen ust their own filter. That being said, too small or not if if the filter element does not seal TIGHT you are in trouble and need to make it right - pronto

Re: too small of an air filter

Any good parts store should be able to cross check the part number... also try WIX 46637. Where they will get you is on the price. Local stores here quoted me almost double ($54) what I was able to get the online for ($30), including shipping. To be fair, it should be known that I asked for only one at the parts store and ended up ordering 6 online, which saved alot of shipping. ($12 s+h on 1st, $2 ea additional)
