It's been done for the baby Jeeps with the F134. Likely could be done with the filters that sit on top off a V engine. You have find a paper element that will fit in the housing, and modify the housing to accept the paper element.
I would look to the hot rod guys that want to keep the look of the vintage air filter, but upgrade to a paper element. Surely some hot rodder has done this to your style of filter.
