Look into the oil filter delete kit man it really frees up oil restriction and makes 50hp more at the wheels!


All jokes aside lol the delco one that comes from GM is pretty good. Fram sucks as do wix. Cut one open wix delco and Fram and see. The local oreilly auto here made a good example of it

Like everything folks have a favorite they live and breath by. For me, I have been using AMSOIL filters for several years now. The EaO Filter are a 98.7% efficient filter down to 2 microns and hold up to 2x more particles over an OEM filter. Best of all when combined with AMSOIL products it comes with a 25k mile 1 yr warranty. No one can top that!

If I can answer any questions please let me know.

Last I heard Delco filters were made by Champion Labs and they were also at one point made by Wix and Wix is one of the best filter makers out there, anyone who says otherwise knows nothing about oil and oil filters.

Not starting a filter bash, but i have used both. ACDelco and Wix and both have served the same purpose for me. And yes i have cut both open. Everybody has their fav's and their own opinion. Its just all in what you like

Great, good for you.

So when my amsoil filter wears out, I can get it replaced under warranty?
