Mike.. You can get K&N on the internet, and they are prompt to respond. I was in contact with the K&N representative on a Q&A, then I asked for a catalog and received one from England...yes it was the factory...very helpfull. I bought the parts from SUMMIT Racing catalog, even if it does not show, if you give them the information on your car they can get you the part at no extra cost.
