    sho/fzr oil filter

    Does anyone know if theres any other oil filters that fit our motors? Id like to be able to just run down the street to get one for the normal $4-$5, instead of $23. With all the modding going on lately im sure everyone could benefit from knowing this.

    Royal Purple is $9/qt. I use it in our race car and it seems to defy logic, even under race-only conditions the engines do not seem to wear. I cut open the filters at each oil change and there is never any metal in the filter. They have a great video on their site. In addition, many of the engine building publications show that it gets you 1 to 2 % hp increase over what they call the most popular synthetic. It used to be hard to get, but, NAPA now carries it.

    Well I hit the jackpot, I found filters from about every company out there. I put in the sierra number on frams website and this is what I found. You can scroll down on the competitor list to find which brand you prefer. http://www.power-21.com/FramPower21i...?b=F&pn=PH4967

    I will be running Amsoil. I am not going cheap on the oil. It's the life blood of the motor. Saving $25 per oil change is not alot of savings on a $12,000+ PWC.

    This is debatable, but, you probably don't want the RP in the engine during break-in. It could be too slippery to promote ring sealing. I am going to run 1-2 hours with the factory oil and then will change it to RP.

    Does anyone have a trick to keep the oil out of the bilge when the filter is changed. BTW the NAPA brand filters are WIX, which are whole bunch better than Fram.

    I crossed the WIX, it was a 57000. The racing filter is a 57000R. NAPA should have the same part numbers, but, not in a WIX box.
