Default Intake filter size ?

Vanís intake will not fit in the James cowl for 0360 w/ FM-150. Don has an elbow for use with a cone filter that has significantly less area than Vans round filter. Dan H has commented on a rectangular filter area that he has used in a different config.
So, before I start developing a custom intake with optimized filter capacity, does anyone have any comment on just using Donís elbow with cone filter ?

Itís a lot to wade through and perhaps a bit off topic but there is a ton of info in this thread on intakes and filters.

Default James

Is there something wrong with the James intake setup?
I did 2 on I looked at the injected or forward facing FI setups.
Mybe the FM-150 is vertical and doesn't allow the forward facing setup?..

For vertical intakes, it might be a bit tricky. Horizontal flow works great with a K&N E-0995.

I did the elbow setup from Don and it works great with the SJ intake. I had to make an phenolic spacer to align the filter with the intake tube but that part also came from Don.

PM if you'd like some photos. Here's one of the in-work setup.
