If you're worried about getting junk in the engine, ditch the dunce hat filter and put the stock air box back on. This has been debated ad nauseum on this board and others and the conclusion is virtually always the same: cone filters don't do a damn thing for you (the biggest restriction in the intake system is the AFM, not the filter) and likely will only harm your car since they allow more particulate matter to pass through them. You've been warned.

When your car dies from poor compression due to scored cylinder bores, I get dibs on your parts.
