these are just a few of the links that explain why FRAM sucks,
like mentioned above cut a fram open and then cut a P1 or M1 or NG(WIX)
open and you will see.

do a search lots posted by myself and others on this topic...

I will say IF,, somone had a gun to my head and said "use FRAM or Die"
i would use there Extended Guard, it'* the only filter that fram makes that'* worthy
of me mentioning, it has Synthetic blend media backed by a metal screen
for uniform pleating, and i think metal end caps where ther other line is cardboard,
and a Silicone Anti-Drainback Valve.

But for the $$ that fram charges,, there'* alot of better filters out there.....

but in the end i think i would still take the bullet......

But, what does the reputation of their oil filters have to do with their air filters??

While i will never use their oil filters again, perhaps the rants concerning them would have been better used in a thread requesting advice about oil filters.

Just a thought....

I would tho use the tough guard, it'* Pre-oiled media will increase dirt holding capacity.

where the hog may give up a little filtering for flow...$.02
