Air Filter on a MAF

I just finished putting an '06 GTO LS2 into my '40 Chevy. Because of clearance problems between the engine and the radiator, I can't use the tube the MAF is attached to. I removed the tube and installed the MAF directly to the throttle body. My question is this... Is there a filter, probably a cone type, that will attach onto the MAF? Or, is this a bad idea? Thanks for any help.

A Pic. of your set-up would be helpful.

There are numerous cone filters available in different sizes, just not sure about the clearance between the TB and radiator. Also, heat soak might become an issue…

You can do it, you might need a filter with a 4" id opening. It's a stright shot so no worries on throwing codes.

if you do it that way you are going to get serous heat soak
if you have enough room for a pod filter and the maf
you would have enough room for the standard intake pipe to fit wouldnt you
