I just got a new K&N air filter in the mail today and I tried to install it and it is a different shape than the OEM one. The one I ordered is a 33-2647, which is the right one according to the K&N website. Should the 2006 Elise and Exige both have the same air filter? The 33-2252 looks like a more correct shape. Is that what I should get?

Stock or cup airbox? Post pictures. 33-2252 is for stock airbox.

Use paper or get used to changing or cleaning your MAF.

I've got one in my exige Chris. I'll check the box when I get home tonight if you can't find the info on here but I think Gunpilot is correct. I remember it being a little confusing when I ordered mine too. I think it's the same one as for a toyota matrix if i'm not mistaken lol.

Ok, Thanks. Looks like K&N just has the wrong filter listed for a 2006 Exige. Somewhat understandable if only 300 were made and most get filter changes at a dealer. Most of the ones listed on Ebay are for 2009-2010 Exiges. If it is the same as a Matrix I should be able to get one locally and not have to order it.
