Has anyone tried making a high-flow cabin filter out of other materials? We are now hitting temps where I can avoid running A/C if I run the fan full-tilt. But it sounds like the fan is working hard for the amount of air coming out of the vents.

It's likely Tuvokium, similar to vulcanized rubber :-)

I suggest you try the washable foam type of universal forced air HVAC filter. You can cut it to fit, and they are designed for high air flow.
