Oil and air filters

Here's a good link for doing some research, instead of blindly believing what advertisers tell us:

You can also get lost for days at http://bobistheoilguy.com/

Purolator filters are available at a favorite local discount store so I usually run those. I have no problem at all using Wix or Baldwin filters either. I stay far away from orange oil filters.

Revisiting this, I did some more reading at the "Bob's the oil guy" website.

Oil filter testing: http://www.gmtruckcentral.com/articles/ ... study.html

Air filter testing: http://www.gmtruckcentral.com/articles/ ... study.html

The air filter data was strong enough that the K&N filter is being replaced with an Amsoil filter (yes, they make air filters, too.) I figure it's a small price to keep crap out of the turbocharger compressor blades, never mind the cylinder rings.

While I was on their site I also ordered a couple of their oil filters, since they were very highly rated as well.
