Default New air filter

My k&n that came with my begi kit is falling apart. I've been looking at the choices and at this time I realize that any of them for the most part are going to be just fine.

I was looking around and came across a thread on mnet listing this air filter from a honda prelude 90' part# a1153c



Any thoughts on using this filter? I kind of like the idea of just replacing the filter every 6 months to a year. Arizona is super dry and dusty so i'm not real keen on the high flow filters. I guess I could always do an aem or injen with a pre-filter.

Thoughts?

Amsoil makes a dryflow as well. Just installed one on my car a few days ago. At $50 a pop it's not something I'd want to replace twice a year but it sure seems to be a quality product. Build quality looks miles better than what FM ships with their turbo kits.

I've had no problem with my AEM dryflow but I also havent put enough miles on it to have to clean it yet.
