    Are there any members who have identified an alternative washable air filter element for the T160 standard box? I understand the K&N  filter has been discontinued now and have not tracked down a NOS item as yet; I would rather not buy a standard paper item.

    I bought an K&N filter from P&M years ago, might be worth checking if they still have any!

    Thanks Dave, I phoned him and they don’t have any left. He mentioned that the filter was actually one for a car that just happened to fit a T160 filter box, so maybe another manufacturer has one of similar dimensions. Can anyone give me the dimensions of the paper filter please, as I don’t have one to measure.

    I think , and I say think, the Reliant Scimitar air filter is the same

    Now that is interesting, even the box looks similar. Thanks.

    It is very very similar! Someone did make a t160 airbox out of one of these by filling in the single hole and milling out three new ones – apart from some minor fettling with the clip / closing arrangement that was about it. And way cheaper than finding a real one.

    K N filters are available for this box on e bay. About £50 though.

    Would that be K&N 33-2046?
