It's just a paper 5 1/8" air cleaner. They come in different heights, I don't recall how tall (short) this one is.
Yes the mixture screw will touch the OD of the filter so I cut a triangle in the rubber on top and bottom to clear it.
I've used these filters for many years on the red car with no issue. They don't seem to restrict HP at the 350WHP level as the surface area is about the same as the OEM flat filter.
