    Resurrecting old topic--short center tubes

    ok, i'll buy that. but unless it results in media bypass, which i would say is very rare based on your pics as an extreme example, i propose that's it is of no concern. I see a metal ring in the 1st pic. why is it collapsed and how is it different from a center tube that supposedly prevents...

    Honda OEM Filtech oil filters

    "....I would have trusted them except when I asked the same question to another guy next day he said they are made by the same manufacturer! the person at a dealer parts counter would be useless for such info, if you believed him it's your own fault. Why not ask the oil monkey in the shop...

    Bad Drivers

    "Nothing worse out on the Interstate than the SUV moron with cruise set at 5 mph above posted limit" going with the flow is much more important. An SUV in good condition should have no issue with control at 75. In fact (at least in the Texas I've driven in) +5 is the default standard and if...
