Default Air Filter Question

I have an Ofna Ravager and it only has a single stage air filter. I want to put a dual stage setup on it. What do I have to buy to do this? There is a hook that the top of the air filter hooks to that I'd like to keep using if possible.

If you want to replace the whole thing get this...

If you just want to add a 2 stage foam set to the assembly that you have get this...

Either way you will still be able to use the little hanger wire.

He is talking about not having the foam prefilter element(I believe). Even with the filter covers, it's a good idea to have that oiled foam prefilter under there.

The only thing I have on there is what it came with. It's just a big foam piece with no outer layer. My friends t-maxx has the same type almost but his has a thin outer layer of foam so he can just replace that part I guess.

Yep that thin outer layer is the prefilter. It's not so much that you can just replace/clean that part, but that the prefilter keeps the inner element cleaner so you can run longer without cleaning/changing the filter.
