I would disagree. I used both K&N and Mobil 1 on both my LS1 F-bodies and didn't have any oil pressure issues. Not to mention the filters are virtually identical. Hell, they have the same part number too.jaguarcult said:You might want to reconsider buyin a Mobil1 oil filter. I've installed them twice on my 98 TA, and found that they add about 10 to 20 Lbs of Oil pressure. Which means you are not flowing as much oil through your system.
I've switched to K&N oil filters and use the long version, the pressure is a little less than stock and the quality is very very good. If you're running any typce of synthetic oil, then use the K&N.
Stay away from Fram also, the one time I tried it the casing bowed out after a week of daily driving.
Hope this helps
I get mine at Murrys in Glen Ellyn they also sell AMSoil. The filter I used for my truck that has a Gen III engine was a M1-107 and belive vette and Fbody used it too.speed_demon_freak said:I went to PepBoys and they dont sell Mobil 1 filters. Who sells them in the Chicagoland area?
The AC Delco are very good filters. The Mobil filters are just a little bit better. The Fram are bad. They use a lot of cardboard where it should be plastic/metal.UBDSLO1 said:Can someone tell me why and how the Mobil 1 filter is better than the stock one?? Does it have better filtering capabilities, than the stock filter??? I have always used stock filters on all of my cars and trucks, I tried Fram once on my 2000 S-10, and boy, was the oil pressure ALL over the place, so I took it off, and tried another Fram, and the same thing happened. Took it off, and used the AC Delco filter, and the oil pressure went back to normal. So now I just used stock filters for everything that I drive.
Castings are a little rough. I had a trans line filter kit that I had to use teflon tape on the fitting threads to get it to seal. You get what you pay for.ACPromotions said:A word of caution about the Permacool assembly. A friend of mine received one of their kits for a Duramax and the rough casting of the filter adapter still had metal shavings in it. By all means, completely flush out anything that you get. By the way, the vendor who sold him the part allowed him to return it for a complete refund. The casting was garbage.
