Thanks for the great post on oils. I concur with everything you said especially the oil filters. If you ever have to build an engine that has pieces of Fram oil filter clogging the oil gallerys then it will break one from buying cheap oil filters.
There is also a dufference in Fram filters sold in Europe, they are far superior to US /China filters. They are made in England by Hastings.
For a while I thought the Motorcraft filters sold by discount parts houses were good. I read the small print and they are made in China for the parts houses. They are lighter than Ford filters and have a cheap look about them.
Thanks again, good job!
