that unit is not a filter but a baffle/silencer.
what we do is dissmantle the unit ie split it at the join around the the centre (poping the spot welds) with a thin sharp cold chisel, take out baffle and replace with a block of foam that is similar to what they use on turbo inlets, then use pk screws to clamp the two pieces together so that you can undo and clean the foam regularily, MAKE sure the screen on the blower is clean and in place before reassembling. or try IPD Parts or Interstate Diesel ..
