Air filter requirements

I've been trying to figure out how to put a decent size air filter in the fender with my On3 turbo setup. No matter how a come at it, it seems like the biggest filter I can fit in there with the intercooler pipe is the unit that comes with the BBK CAI. But I'm not sure if it will meet the CFM requirements of the turbo. Does anyone have any input, or experience fitting a larger filter?

The filter in question.

Yeah, I was thinking of a similar setup. I can't believe out of all the people that have put these kits on their cars, no one has tried to get away from those stupid little autozone filters.

I know it filters fine. But I couldn't live with the power loss. Lol.

Since I already bought the 90* boot. I guess I'll just run the bbk filter for now.

i dont know how much it hurt it, but it is still plenty for the street..either way it is going to kill the power, but will save the turbo..
