    I use to be a Fram user until Allied Signal bought them and removed some of the filter paper and went with a plastic checkball. Now its NAPA which is Wix.

    K&N, with that nut welded to the end it makes removal and installation a snap! Other wise I have used WIX, FRAM, and MP. I was told to ask Mopar parts drone for the Viper filter, better media (like K&N) and it is the same size as a P8A.

      OHD, you got that right. I knew a guy who had spent years building his 340 powered Dart Sport. He had an Oberg on it, and opened the filter to have a look after his first pass. There was so much metal in it he winched it on the trailer, took it home, and pulled it down. What he found was a motor that looked just fine. No problems. So he put it back together, and proceeded to set several NMCA/NSCA records with it without problems.

      OHD,

      What's the part number you use on your big block engines and have you been using them for race, street, or both?

      I've been using Fram tough guard filters for awhile and reg. Fram before then. Since parts stores are starting to carry Mopar filters i've switched to them.

      For you guy's who are using the Mopar Performance filters, which ones are you using.

      P4529190 - race filter
      P4452890 - high performance
      P4529187 - reatoration
      P4529805 - restoration, high performance

      I've been running the P4529190 race filters on my Coronet's 440 and on other Mopar engines for years, but have heard that the WIX filters are the best of the stock screw on style filters on the market these days, so I have been thinking of switching over to them.

      By the way, does anybody know who actually makes the Mopar Performance filters for Chrysler?

      Whoever gives them the best price that week.

      Check out this link to oil filter comparisons. Lots of very interesting info.

      http://www.knizefamily.net/minimopar/oilfilters/index.html

      Should have said I voted for Wix. Been using them most of the time since I was 17 and always had good service from them.
