stick with a VA 74 or equivilant. Thats 3 inches high and 14 in diameter.
I dont think and inch one way or the other is going to matter.

a 14X3 flows plenty of air for whatever engine you are going to have on the street, but a 14X4 looks better with a drop base air cleaner.
the Wix part number for the 14X4 element is 42096.
if you want to get the really racy look, you can get 14X4 filter with a prefilter wrap on it- Wix part number 46096.
http://www.wixfilters.com/filterlookup/PartDetail.asp?Part=42096

there are a few choices if you want a K&N filter element for some reason. it won't let me link directly to the search results, so just input the outside diameter as 14", and the height as 4".

I have this filter for sale if you're interested. It's got 400 miles on it. Barely dirty on about 5 ribs.

I always wondered, do those tops actually make a noticeable difference? Seems like a high $$ marketing ploy......

I honestly don't know. I'm sure the performance isn't worth the money, but it's got the "cool" factor going for it. Just doesn't fit real well with the blower... Surprised
