K&N website lists two filters for the EC.

I asked why and here is their reply.

I wasn't aware that the EC was made in China?

Thank you for contacting K&N Engineering. The one that reads China is for the 2018 Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross manufactured in China, it appears it has a different stock intake system than the one that reads for all models.

Regards,

As the EC should breathe a bit better, you may see a slight change in throttle response. I wouldn't expect any large improvements to fuel economy or overall performance however.

I bought one as I got a good deal, it's a lot thinner than the original paper one.

There is better throttle response and it sounds a bit throaty.

Haven't checked economy yet.

K&N filters don't actually filter very well and let fine particles into your engine.

not worth the extra noise and potential 1 or 2hp increase. over oiling them can foul your MAF sensor, too.

i use a dry drop-in filter on my car - not sure if any are available for the EC, though.
