I have always seen oil pressure changes( lower ) with the Fram PH3387 as compared to the stock Filter

Tought Gaurd... Is that the expensive Black filter? Or just the orange one?

If its the orange one with the black grip and you cut one open, you'd never buy another fram oil filter again, Cheapest POS oil filter I have ever seen.. And if you have an AC Delco and Fram open side by side, its a no brainer which is the better unit


I am die hard AC Delco PF47, But I would not hesitate to use Wix, Puralator, among a few other brands...

The only reason I bought the fram is beecause they are resonably priced and have the grip on the bottom so they are easy to change. I run amsoil in my truck with a K&N oil filter, but I am not going to put that kind of stuff on this car until i get the leak fixed. I mean whats the point of running the best stuff when it is just leaking out. I will get a Ac Delco filter today...

That could be a better filter... Haven't seen that one yet..

I am not a fan of fram oil filters in any manner... I would rather see any member get something carried at the local parts stores as long as its not a Fram...

Look at the first 3.. 2 delco'* PF47 and the third one is FRAM 3387..

I"d avoid tough guard and extra guard.. for FRAM the Extended guard or x2 filter would be the only fram filter I use.. but they're overpriced, so I only use extended guard FRAM filter when they're on sale.. which is seldom

Bandit, the sad part is that its the truth... I have used Puralator in the past when they have run out of my AC Delco PF47'*...
