I have spent some time searching for such a filter many years ago. I found
one unit you may want to try.
IIRW, the unit I have here is from a mid-80s Nissan Sentra Diesel (yes they
were sold here in Canada), it is a FRAM CA6543 and it fits were a standard
3" cone filter would.

It's a standard cylindrical paper filter with a steel mesh inside and a
steel end cap. The filter mouth is made of plastic.
Overall length: 7 1/2"
Outside diameter: 5 1/8"
Filter media length: 5 3/4"
70 pleats of 3/4"
Filter mouth outside diameter: 3" (would slip into a 3" hose).

Only "drawback": it's olive green in color... Definitely not a "tuner" look.
