    Filter for my F150

    I usually use Fram EG or TG filters on my 3.7 F150, but Im leery now due to them going back to nitrile ADBV’s, Wix is out of the question since theyre Mann/Puro made. Whats a good oil filter out there that wont break the bank? No Motorcraft either

    Five Star tuning

    Looking at getting some tuning for my 2012 3.7 crew cab F150, 214k miles, I figured if Im gonna keep it for the long haul I might as well invest some money to somewhat increase the performance/mpg.

    F150 honest review

    So for the longest time I was one of those guys who would bash Ford for the sake of bashing Ford, saying they were junk and I’d never own one, the whole time having never owned one. Well that sure was stupid. Two years ago I needed a work truck and bought the truck pictured below, as is no...

    Honda SJ oil

    Would this oil be ok to run in my ‘97 Timberwolf 250 with a wet clutch? It meets JASO T903 spec and I figured it would be better due to it meeting API SJ. Or are oils meeting JASO-MA2 better? Also can this oil be used in new products with wet clutches?
