Low Profile Air Filter Recomendations?

I just put an Edelbrock Performer RPM intake on my 69 GTO. There isn't a prayer that my current K&N air cleaner is going to fit under my hood. Any suggestions on a good low profile air cleaner/filter set up?

Over the years I've had good results using 14' x 3" open element air filters on my Pontiacs, look much like the ones on the '67 GTO's.
Edelbrock has a good one if you don't mind the logo on it (#1221) and fits Q-jets, too. Summit (part# SUM-G3000), Jegs (part# 720-9790), and Competition Products (14" Low Profile Air Cleaner, 14" x 3", 5-1/8" Neck, Chrome - Competition Products) all have these air filters, too. Some without logos which look OEM. (I'm partial to the paper filters, having had K&N cotton lint get in carb air bleeds and EFI mass air flow sensors, giving me alot of grief.)

If you have a choice of more than one, go with the largest diameter in order to maximize the area available for air flow.
