Default Replacement air filter not oiled gauze

Hi, I'm a new poster here and hoping someone might have the answer I'm looking for. I have a 93 GT motor that I have been running a K&N mounted straight to the 55mm airflow sensor. I want to remove the K&N and replace it with a clamp on paper filter, but I'm having trouble finding a filter. so far I have only been able to find a NAPA 9003 filter, but that one has an 80mm intake and I need 55. Dies anyone have any knowledge of a stock replacement air filter that will mount straight to my airflow sensor?
Thanks

Phats, google Pod Air Filters. Amazon has 54mm "clamp on, Non oil" filters. Put some WD-40 on it and it will fit snug as a bug in the rug.

Hi Buck,
Thanks for the reply. I'm really hoping to find a stock type paper air filter that can slip on. I have been running a K&N on there and have been for years and just want to get away from the oiled gauze filters. Unfortunately in my search of manufacturers websites I really haven't found much to go on. Either they don't list specifications, or they don't respond to an email asking for clarification. So I figured I'd try the forum route to see if maybe somebody already figured it out.
Thanks again for offering up the suggestion.

Use a tape measure to get the size of youre maf inlet.Im not sure if 55mm is the inside or outside diameter of the stock inlet?? Just lay the tape measure across the inlet and get the size.To convert mm to in,just divide the mm size by 25.4
Example: 55mm 25.4= 2.16" So I don't know if thats the inlet size or what??
The following filter is dry with a 2.5" inlet
