With all the info available about oil filters I don't understand why anyone
would use a Fram, they're the worst.
Especially considering that some of the other really good filters are
about the same price. It's just not worth it.

I know lots of people that have used them exclusively and have never had any problems.

I have a beater 5.0 Ford with 247,000 on it with Fram every time (but maybe 2), and it doesn't burn a drop of oil (Mobil 1).

If you study what "race filters" are you might begin to question their viability for any situation other than "race and change the oil".

As I indicated, they misquoted.

The best authority as to what ole Smokey said is Ole Smokey himself.

Smokey's SBC oil article also appeared in Engine Masters Race Edition last year.

EDITED I won't rewrite my posts.

The only other problem i have is a long filter is very close to header, can not get a finger between filter and header!! Do you guys have this problem?? Does it raise oil temperture or do damage to filter it self?? Do any of you put heat wrap on oil filter? That is what i am thinking of doing because i don't want to go with short filter.

Here's a pic of my remote mount. I was basically forced into using this because of my setup. you could remount yours far from the header. Summit has a bunch of different adapters that might do the trick.
