Hey all,

I am wondering which brand oil filter are people feeling is the best right now? Also who runs synthetic oil with Zddp additive?

Thanks!

Wix non race filters better than their high flow low restriction race filters do, the race filters down to 40 Microns and the standard non race filters takes out trash down to lower than 20 microns up
Last I heard Wix made the NAPA Gold label oil filters work scope
I use a remote mounted oil filter adapter that uses the larger, better filtering NASCAR type oil filters from Wix that are like the Fram race HP6 filters scope up
Lot bigger inlet and outlets on them, flow way more oil than a stock size Mopar filter will shruggy

Flow is determined either by the biggest restriction in the system or the capacity of the pump, whichever is less. You maybe wasting your money on high flow filters.

I am still using Napa gold. At one time they were proven to be very good, although that proof may be out of date...

Pick your brand and buy several at one time. Hastings and Wix have good reputations.

NAPA Gold IS WIX.

Buy WIX premium filters (black) from Rock Auto. Check this out - a great inside look:

While we're at it, check these two videos out - does SeaFoam work? How about Lucas oil treatment? Judge for yourself:

The last comprehensive study I read on oil filters, which was recent, had Amsoil, K&N, and Mobil1 as the top overall Oil Filters.

For the people that only put a couple hundred miles per year, does it really matter?

Why wouldn’t it matter? Do you think they all perform the same until they’ve been on the job for a long time?
I don’t.

Emphatically Agree with Pacnorth, cut open a Fram and a Wix and then say it doesn't matter.
Only inexpensive filter I would consider is a Motorcraft FL-1A. It is made by Purolator, fits our stuff and is a respectable filter for a low end price.


In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Why use a POS filter like a Fram, when for $2.00 more, you can use the best?

Hey Sunroof for $2 LESS you can get a BETTER filter than Fram. Fram carries the good filter price but is just a piece of crap. Frams should be priced at 99 cents for how their constructed.
