I had one on my GT350. I did it because it was blue, and I could wash it. Had it on the car for the entire life. I sold Sasha yesterday for Akira.

Akira is my GT500. I will probably buy another for her as well.

Just to add, try the brand "Outerwears" micron pre filter on your aftermarket CAI filter. I have it and it works great on a conical.

This is the exact Outerwears micron prefilterI am using for the Airaid conical, which is a fairly large conical filter:

The purpose of a prefilter is to block the smallest particulate matter from the main filter. An uncovered filter will clog much faster, whether it's a stock paper filter OR a "performance" filter. The prefilter will and does prevent the main filter from becoming saturated with debris AND at the same time it is deflecting particulate from itself due to its material and design.

All I do with mine is just use a shop vac to remove any debris from the bottom of the box and off the surface of the OW micron. Quarterly maintenance I'll remove the OW micron and rinse (it dries practically instantly). I've run it in full pollen season too and never had an issue with it clogging OR the underlying conical filter becoming dirty from pass through.

Here's my original Micron thread showing my Outerwears micron on my prior 2016 S550 after 5,000 miles of use. It's no BS, it works as designed and works very well. I'm using the same micron on my 2018.

As one can see in the linked images in that thread, the debris is sitting on top of the Outerwears and isn't "clogging it" at all. If I tapped the Outerwears, that debris would fall right to the bottom of the air box. The same happens when there is airflow occurring, debris will deflect off the Outerwears and into the bottom of the air box. If the Outerwears was not in place, that same debris would have been packed into the pleats of the main filter.

Appears AM no longer has them in stock….

You can try the Outerwears link, there’s instructions on their site how to measure, then contact them to see what prefilters they can match for you. Quite a few folks in the GT350, Mach 1 and GT500 sub forums have ordered directly from Outwerwears from a submitted filter size.

I think Summit Racing also sells Outerwears pre-filters.

Why a Japanese name? A Shelby is an American icon, just curious, lol

Please keep us posted on your transition. We here the driving experience is very different. Enough so that some go back to the GT350.

Just curious who is running the Blue High Flow Air Filter from Ford Performance that is made by Air Aid and if any significant difference that is noticeable.
They look nicer than the OEM paper filter, and they're reusable. I can't otherwise tell the difference.
