Well you've got to elaborate on "good". That can mean airflow, maximum size of particulate that makes it through, debris holding capacity, pressure drop, etc. for filtration I look to why big diesel engines use.

On no worries I found your thread and recorded the part number.

As the filter gets dirty, the cubic feet per square inch starts to go down, so you need more square inches.
So, and I am making lots of assumptions, Kens bigger filters can get dirtier than my filter and not choke the engine.
So, bad pun alert, Size only matters if you plan on it getting dirty.
AEM 21-2011dk. This won't fit mine. My hoover pipe kit must be larger then normal. The I.D. of my filter is 3".
Flang length 1.125"
Flange I.D. 2.5"
