Question Volvo Penta md2020 air filter alternative

I read on this post that someone fitted a k+n air filter to their VP md2020 instead of the foam effort. I cannot find the post, does anyone have any thoughts on this and possibly a part code?

Re: Volvo Penta md2020 air filter alternative

I am thinking of doing the same for our older VP2003 engine as the replacement from VP is 139

Have a look at the general fit K&N filters rather than filters for a specific make of vehicle:

K&N Universal Clamp-on Air Filters for a Variety of Universal Air Filter Applications

Hello there, was just found the post I was referring to, it was by Belize sailor July last year. I have asked for the part code and will let you know if he has it

Re: Volvo Penta md2020 air filter alternative

There is nothing special about fitting an air filter on these engines. Just measure the existing air intake hose OD and find any suitably sized canister-type filter. K&N are expensive, but work well. I use inexpensive Purolator ones on ours (and don't remember the actual part number - I just go to the autopart store and open boxes until I find the right size).

You will not find anyone who can cross-match because there is nothing to cross-match to. The original part is not an air filter - just a piece of cheap foam stretched on a wireframe.
