All I use is Wix/Napa. Same great company, same great filter. Thanks Pops.
I order filters for my fleet once a year from Napa every March. Save about $900 doing it that way Oil and Fuel filters are all great. I will say though that for a few of my old John Deeres the only air filters to use are OEM replacements. The Napas are too restrictive.
X2 on Wix
YEP.....WIX for me.
WIX or K&N My wifes car and my daughters car use the same filter, so I bought a case of WIX filters from Rock Auto. On the 5.9 Cummins Diesel, The nut on the bottom of the K&N makes it easy to R&R the filter from under the truck.
Yep, I used to be a Fram guy until I cut some open myself. I've been using anything but Fram for the last several years now...maybe I should start using Wix. I always figured the K&N were just marketing-hype over-priced filters (I never cut one open though).
I may be a fool but ran Fram's decades. I did cut a couple open to see what they looked like. That was many years ago. Looked pretty good. After seeing the bad comments on line I have switched to WIX. NAPA is close enough. The race filter is available too.
Wix here ... Napa gold filters are made by wix, so are the carquest filters in the blue label boxes ....
Yep, Wix here (usually NAPA Gold actually, since I have a buddy that runs the local store). Same exact filter. There was a time, many moons ago, when Fram was pretty good stuff - but then they got acquired, then started catering to huge contracts to supply Wally World, Advance Auto, etc. with cheap units in abundance, hence their quality went to total shit. Might be the only filter out there where your engine gets worse than not having a filter change at all....
I agree with all the Wix/NAPA users, but I've also always liked the old Hastings filters... the ones with the picture of the square headed dude!
Sounds like you need some oil filter training. Happy reading! http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters/index.html http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilters/opinions.html
Yes, yes you should After learning and seeing the difference WIX makes in the design, materials and effectiveness of their filters, WIX/NAPA Gold are the ONLY filter brand I look for. In the case of my 6bbl air filter, I don't have much choice.
I have never had a problem using Motorcraft's FL-1A's at all! I've owned a lot of Fords in my life and used them as well as on my /6 & 383 currently. Good Luck
fyi- K&N makes a 6bbl air filter
Any comments on Fram HP-1 oil filters.
Yes PB, and you are so helpful with so many of my questions. I wouldn't use a K&N oiled air filter if I had another choice. The filter material is too porous IMO, and I have seen documentation that their air filters aren't all that. YRMV, no intent to disparage their products. I have to look it up again, but someone has a high quality repop 6bbl air filter with the correct round holes in the metal filter cover. Right now IIRC I have the orange rubber Fram and I think I got it from Mancini. The rubber is slightly malformed in one spot, but it doesn't affect performance.
pffffttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt! Aka fart sound.
I use a WIX on my 70 Satty. On my daily drivers, I use a Mobil-1 Extended performance. I get them at auto zone or advanced auto when they have a sale. 5 quarts of Mobil-1full synthetic and a Mobil one filter for $32-35 dollars.
I have been having problems with wix on my diesel pickup
