Dinan Air Filter vs Macht Schnell

Looked but didn't see anything.
Was wondering if the Dinan filter replacement would fit in lieu of the Macht Schnell filter.
They look like the same overall dimensions but it looks like the Dinan is cheaper and maybe a dry filter?

I have the MS intake system and want to replace the element with a dry filter

I believe the Dinan filter is a replacement for their intake system. It won't work if you don't have the Dinan carbon fiber intake system.

Both are cotton gauze filters, I don't believe the Dinan filter will fit properly.

Well shucks. Well at least if someone is looking for the answer to this same question it's documented
