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.

Yep that's what I'm talking about.
Didn't know GM and Mitsu didn't do that.

|INNOVA||All cars that I have owned, I feel that the OEM filters are the best as well as cheap. A good oil filter will have a plastic cover over the top. Most OEM filters have this but most autozone filters do not including K&N.|

Anyone have feedback on K&N OIL filters?
I've been trying to figure out what people think about oil filters in general. Some people swear by the Fram Ultraguards, some people only use OEM's, and I know people who LOVE Wick's. Recently I've heard very good things about Bosch oil filters and even wiper blades. What do you all think?
