How can you make such a statement when you don't even know what's in the filter to begin with?does the fram ultra filters use ultra cardboard end caps? fram is highly advertised cheap junk IMO. i have used Amsoil for years + have always changed the oil filter at 6 mo on a yearly change, cheap insurance for sure
This might truly explain the Honda OE phenomenon that there was less filter in it than a PH7317.I think Fram makes a jobber filter kinda like the dumpy ProSelect from Napa. Might also stand to reason why they are pushing thinner oils aside from CAFE. Learn something new everyday here.Same extended drain media. Amsoil has moved away from Wix as an assembly house for certain filters and now uses Champ. The changes the guys are talking about occurred several years ago when certain Honda/Toyota filters became too restrictive during extended drains. This was beaten to death by the haters here. One guy predicted thousands of dead engines and Amsoil failing and going out of business. Of course, none of these things happened.
