round that I made into an oval.. hard to describe but it works

I can pull things apart to show you if you want more info
but looks like the Butler thing may work for you

Thanks Bob! If you have time and inclination to take more detailed pictures, I would love to see them! I know we are all busy too, so it's not a big deal.

What diameter is your round filter - I'm guessing that you don't feel like the filter area is choking your flow?

I'm leaning on fabbing my own plate - blockers/WFO style such that my shaker can fit onto it with the stainless ring and then use a rectangular KN filter fitted into the shaker itself. When I make the plate I can adjust for tilt and off center. I'm concerned that with the Victor Jr. style intake I have that I'll run out of height- so the rectangular filter appeals to me.
