Let's skip an answer to that and the subsequent pseudo technical beat down.
Cut to the chase so you can tell everyone what you think is best
You know you want to.:biggrin:
DOes anyone know why an OEM filter is better
I look for construction materials and MPE and SPE ratings.
AFter market ones are posting MPE of 99 percent.
Whats the OEM
Except don't use Fram.
Why? I have used them for over 30 years with 1 vehicle with 220K and 3 others with over 100K. The only reason I use the oem on the NSX is that the local Acura dealer hosts our monthly meets so I buy all parts including oil filters from them to show my support or I'd be using Fram on it also.
That could happen with any brand oil filter.
