AC Delco'*..

But now I"m using the white Quaker State with green writing.. from what I"ve heard.. they're made by the same people that makes Wix.. but not @ the cost.. the old Green Quaker state with Black letterin was also made by the same people that made Fram.. Take a look @ it next time the whole design you can tell it'* not the same

At least in

They're like $4 stead of $8 AC Delco ones cause I have to go to auto supply stores to get them stead of Walmart or Crappy Tire

which delco do you guys use? the 47 is listed on autozone for 3.50?

anyhew, i used to run frams, till i was at theJMFC'* house for my upper intake/lower intake lovin. When I was getting ready to do the oil, he looked at my fram and asked why i would run that filter on my car. i was a little taken back, but i went online to do some research, and boy... wish I had known some of that stuff before...

Yep.. 47'* theres also a bigger one that will also work.. but a few people don't recommend it.. I don't remember what car it was made for .. it was actually made for a truck/suv..

yeah, i think i heard that they use the filter off of a 4.3 (so any 4x4 blazer, or a safari van or the like).

as for the fram, i got rid of all my links, but a quick google provided:

K&N. Since I run Mobil1, I only change the oil every 5-6k, so the extra cost doesn't matter.

do you leak at all with the mobile one? any time I talk to someone about it, they say I should avoid it on a 96 that hasn't had it before... they say it'll leak like a sieve...
