SoCalMike Donaldson FTW! everyone is stuck on cat filter cause it is a cat filter and has 2 micron rating. it is a secondary filter not made to remove water.

A donaldson filter. People say that the cat filter is big enough to hold the water at the bottom of the filter but when your under a heavy load or wot its just going to suck whatever it can out of the fuel filter.

yep im serious, and i dont want to start this debate over here on this thread but at 30,000 miles my DIC still says over 50% life remaining. as many miles as we run a month it is not feasible to have to do servicing at 10,000 mile intervals, that is the main reason we run amsoil is so we get the 25,000 mile oil changes, but we are fixing to get our oil and fuel filter changes in sync so we will be doing the oil and fuel at 25,000 miles.

Hibneck1 I voted other because a lift pump filter set up or the cat filters are probably the best choice but as a stock replacement I have been running the racore

best filter

I really like my cat filter. I change 'em every month. I was expensive with the delco and racor filters. I can get 3 cats for 1 delco.

zr600 Last two month have been running the nicktane adapter and the donaldson short filter with no problems. Before that it was just the factory but only had to put one factory one on till i thought man theres got to be a cheaper filter out there and started reading about the cat and donaldson filters. If i ever go with a lift pump i will just put on a cat filter then till then ill use the donaldson for the water seperator too. I also got the clear bowl and the spacer for the filter head assembly.
