You are running wrong size of tires.
You need to keep the front and rear at the same or very close overall diameter.
To keep your speedo and odometer correct you need:
F225/30R20
R255/25/20

I had those brake pads on my other car before (S60R Brembo).

It will probably fit.
The filter is the same and the tube is similar.
Selling price is $200
The filter is about $50 which means that pipe is 150.
Not the best bang for buck IMO
