The OEM replacement from K&N fits the Icebox (I'm assuming that's what you have) just fine with a bit of minor razor blade work.

They switched into 2 entities. Comptech which builds engines and racing etc and then CT-Engineering for their parts distribution.

They dropped the ball for to long, and the market is not the same as it was, and the chance of them being anything is a uphill battle. They would be better off having the dealers sell their stuff, and keep a low overhead, if they ever want to be anything, like they were before. Oh, and get off the high horse, and bring the prices down, or they will never have a come back!!!

I don't actually see a come back happening. Just thought I'd clarify what happened to them.

Does anyone have pics of the modifications needed to a K&N or Spoon Filter to fit the box. Also does the Spoon foam filter need to be oiled? If so does it come with a charge kit?

Pics would be a major help i am receiving my used Comptech Air Box tomorrow.

Also the only chance Comptech has at coming back will come from the S2000 and NSX groups. I see they are also starting a product lines for other vehicles.

I just swaped out the comptech foam filter for the K&N. No modifications for me. Fit almost perfect. Top was a little difficult putting back on but that was it. Very happy about that!

They're like 98% the same. Yes they need to be oiled. If it doesn't come w/ a recharge kit pick one up at Autozone or your local parts store.

Does anyone know what's the model number for the K&N filter that is the suggested replacement for the Comptech Icebox filter? I just went to a speed store and the closest K&N model they had was RU2520.

Thanks

trueflow makes good foam filters too, and have a cleaner kit specifically for foam i believe. they're hard to find though, you'll probably have to order them
