On my 67 B I purchased 2 rear MGA air cleaners (no smog hose nipple on the 
rear) and drilled the threads out to accept the through bolts for the B carbs. 
Not sure if they are any better but it sure looks a lot better under the hood 
and there is a lot more room to work.

Although the air filter set up on the B looks restrictive, I thought that I
read on this list a while back that the stock B filters were actually the
best set up.  Also, that the K & N arrangement was no better in terms of air
introduction to the twin SU's.  I like the idea of the cold air box, doubt
I'd take the time to fabricate it, but am always open to being more
knowledgeable about the car.  Anyone remember the thread on the stock B
filters vs. the K & N ?
