Not all filters are created equal, I am currently using a K&N, and have cross-referenced it with a Wix filter that costs half as much ($6) and I will be buying a couple of the Wix filters for my next oil changes. If a wix is good enough for a half a million piece of farm machinery then it should do a good job for my 9. Wix has superior flow and filtration compared to Fram since Wix uses cotton instead of Fram's cardboard/paper element.i just did an oil filter and used a fram.
they are available at wal mart for like $6. honestly i dont feel theres a whole lot of difference in them so why spend the dough on an expensive one...
When did this happen? And even though they sold out, how do you know that wix changed their filters?Stay away from the Fram Filters. They are one of the worst filters made today. Used to be a great company with a great product but not anymore. The same could be said for Wix. They are no longer owned by Dana Corp.. I'm afraid they are going the way of Fram. The Napa filters used to be made by Wix but that has all changed since the Dana sellout. I'm not sure who is making them now. K&N makes a great filter as well as Baldwin (B7419). Baldwin is known for Heavy Duty and High Performance filters and cost a little more than the Fram & Wix (Maybe 20%) but it's well worth it. If you get a chance, cut your filters open and inspect the actual filter inside the can. Fram's will shock you.
It appears Wix is now owned by Affinia Group, and not Dana. I just looked at the Napa Gold 1359 filter I still have in the box and it says:When did this happen? And even though they sold out, how do you know that wix changed their filters?
