Originally posted by labman: Those of us that have looked inside a Fram didn't like what we saw. However a Fram could well be good enough. Still anything else you buy at any price, likely is a better filter. There is very little hard data that better filters extend engine life. I buy OEM when they are available at a reasonable price. Unfortunately few places carry a PF 1177 or PF 2244G. I am using ST 3950 and Purolator L 14356. If your C5 takes a popular number, chances are you can pick up an AC for about what a Fram would cost.
quote:You might look for the AC Ultraguard Gold UPF44. It's still in the catalogue. The Ultraguard Gold combines high first-pass efficiency with high flow. They're made by Champion Labs, the same vendor that makes many of the other AC filters. I see LA Performance, for example, selling a case for $51.
