I got into an argument with my dad..he thinks that universal cone filters on a fuel injected engine are bad. I wanted to put one on my car and he told me that until i could find out which part number it was that i couldn't...and i have an apc universal filter that fits fine but he is afraid that it will screw up my engine...any thoughts?

If the flange fits tightly and lets no unfiltered air in, dont see what the problem could be. Figure the filter medium is the same composition as the stuff used for the "specific" aftermarket filters, so filtration will be the same either way.....

I used a universal cone when I made my CAI, no problems what-so-ever.
