Alernative to Ryco A61 air filter element

Hi Guys
Has anyone tried the Ryco A88 in an original air filter.  Its only 3mm higher than the A61 but I am wondering if 3mm is going to be 3mm too much.  Other than that, ID is the same and OD is 1mm smaller which wont matter.  I would be surprised if 3mm mattered but thought I would ask.  Thanks.

    From memory, using the A88 would mean the 2 bolts holding top lid down would need to be left 3mm of thread loose, as they normally bear down all the way "home" and tighten themselves at the end of travel. Not acceptable.
    The problem can be solved by adding 3mm Spacer or washers to the 2 hold down bolts threads and all will be well, otherwise the filter will be crushed/distorted with the result that dirty air might "slip past" where sealing is compromised.
