I run a FMS 13" air cleaner to clear my MSD distributor, 2.750" element height. Is there a K&N equivilent? On their website, they list a 13" od with a 2.313" height (it's a Mercedes filter), and a 13.125 od w/ 2.75 height. Will the 13 1/8" element cram into my 13" air cleaner?

Save your hard earned money Todd. K&N isn't worth anything over a high quality paper element. We tried them on the dyno. Motorcraft 14" vs K&N, Fram, and AC. M/C was best with A/C being most restrictive.

No kidding! The element included in the kit is a Wix number, I'll see if I can cross it over to a M/C application

Scoop, the element is 13" od (dead nuts), and the housing isn't much bigger. It's not a tight fit, but I was skeptical about wether an extra 1/8" would squeeze in there, now I won't worry about it

Wix manufactures M/C's filters.

The K&N Mercedes filter will fit. I used it as it was the lowest in height 13" element I could find. It let me fit a Vic Jr intake on a 351W in my 69 under a stock hood.
