Default Oil filters

Just curious what everyone's preference is, or what's best, or if you even care?

I use a Fram PH8A to be percise I change my oil too damn often to worry about a good filter. Roughly about every 2500-3000km does it get changed out... right when it starts to get black >:D

Umm, if you had a better filter your oil wouldn't get black as fast.

Fram filters aren't bad filters. I've installed hundreds and I've never run into any oil pressure issues or leaking. How are they a bad filter? The only reason to switch to a better flowing filter would be in a modified/hi-po application(unless you don't mind spending a little more money on a stock application).

I said a better filter, not better flowing.

A better flowing filter, wouldn't be filtering as much out of your oil. Hence it flows better.

Purolator, AMSOIL are the way to go. They filter very fine, have plenty of pleats that aren't broken, and are of a general better constuction.

You are kidding right.

You ever cut open a filter and see torn pleats inside? (meaning oil just flows from one side to the other without being filtered)

Yeah probably not. Have fun with your walmart filter.

I think i may switch to motorcraft. They have cool looking white filters, and I can get them cheap enough from work anyhow. Aside from that, I would run a fram synthetic filter. They've got more microns for filtering and do a way better job. Its almost time for another oil change... few more days and she'll be at 2500km since the 2nd of feb. I drive WAY to much. Now, I've gotta decide which oil I want to run, and what additives I wanna put in. Thinking of a amsoil 10w30 or a 15-40 with Lucas...

Ford filters are rebranded Purolator ones.
Only they aren't as good as the Plus, and not even close to the Pure One.

Go compare prices to the purolator.

You should post the original study, not some hacked up spam copy.

You sure proved you can't.

For everyone else, it wasn't hard.
Step 1 - Type "oil filter study" into google.
Step 2 - Click on the very first link.

If you have problems with that, you suck at the internet.

Fram synthetic here, just curious tho.. is it ok to just change your filter more often or should oil be changed at that time too. I change both at 3000Kms always but I thought someone wrote that you can just change the filter if you run synthetic. and then oil at 5000kms
