Hey Guys, thanks for the responses and help. I'm awaiting word from Dan as to whether or not SPA offers an alternative air box. There are a couple of references to such in the builders manual. If not I will use the Van's and the filter you referenced.

Had the same question, called and talked with Bob Woolley and used a different K&N filter that is about an inch shorter and cut the vans air box down to fi the filter. I have the 0-320 160 hp set also and this works fine. Sorry I can’t find the K&N part number for you I cut the number off the box and put it somewhere that I wouldn’t loose it. I’m sure I will run a cross it when I’m not looking for it.
You can go to K&N site and they list there filters by size and you can find one that is the right diameter and shorter then cut the air box down to fit. Bob was a wealth of information and always willing to help, he will be missed.

Lycoming Air Box?

PostWed Feb 19, 2020 10:22 am

I'm nearing completion of a Tri-Gear with a Lycoming 0320. I have just a little less than 3 inches between the bottom cowl and the carb. I don't think the Van's airbox will fit well without a lot of modification and a much smaller filter.

What might any of you been using or doing here?
