See, I've always seen issues with the regular Fram filters, but I've heard the ones that are in the sealed canistor were decent. Have you cut open a Bosch oil filter yet? My brother is going to be cutting open every filter at Autozone (extra money for the race car, lol) and reporting the results soon. I'll add it to this thread.

unknownsuperhero As far as a regular screw on filter. FRAMS SUCK!!. All of them, cardboard crushed core with shavings hanging off, and a leaf spring (that only lasts about 500 miles on a high output oil pump). Took one off my truck and it rattled like a maraca(sp?). Then my auto shop class took apart every filter we could get our grubby little hands on.
Best was napa gold, cartridge style filter, one piece core, coil spring and cheap!!
Next was Napa Silver and K&N, Nearly identical.
OEM after that (Chevy 350)
Rest we tested wsa almost all crap. Purolator, Fram, STP.

Napa gold 100% if you do your own filter. This doesnt apply to us RL guys, for this I just use OEM.

INNOVA Yep that's what I'm talking about.

Didn't know GM and Mitsu didn't do that.

Carry on!

You mean like a seal to keep dirt and dust out of the filter? Most GM and Mitsu filters DO NOT have that.
