Oil Filters

What are some really good ones. I want the best, nothing cheap. And whats a really good oil, It gets somewhat cold here, but I do plan on heading to the mountains regularly, as well as up north for a week or so. So I'd need a good weight for this.

Re: Oil Filters

The motorcraft is a good filter.

I also use the IH "Extender" it's a larger oil filter for the T444E

Re: Oil Filters

Amsoils--> EAO full flow spin on oil filters are some of the best full flow filters u can use. The Fleetguard Stratopores are right up there as well. They cost a bit more, but well worth the extra filtration. {Mainly used with Synthetic oil and extended drains}.

But you also can't go wrong with Motorcraft or Wix filters or Fleetguard, M1 even makes a decent filter. Just change them out between 3k and 5K miles, with your oil.

4" MBRP Turbo Back Exhaust.

I'll have to look on my truck, because right now I'm running a stock Motorcraft Powerstroke filter on the old IDI. Seems to set diffrent on the IDI then it does on the Powerstroke. Unless my mind is playing tricks on me. I think the stock IDI filter is too small, that's why I went with the Powerstroke filter. Ma's truck is about due for an oil change any ways so where do you pick one of the bigger ones up at & how much oil do they hold?
