Fram PH8A oil filter.... OK or not?


Lots of bad press about Fram oil filters but is it fact or just internet BS?


I've got to change the oil on my car soon... can buy the Frams locally or order Wix stuff from Amazon.

I get WIX from RockAuto for my Escape, F-150, T-Bird, Mustang, Lincoln LS, and Harley....... one stop shopping. Not a FRAM on anything in my stable.

Fram every 5000 or Wix every 10000. Now there is a question! Rather see someone change their oil in a timely fashion with what they can get ahold of rather than wait and procrastinate because they can't find the "good" filter, or it is across town, or have to order it, or whatever reason they are delaying.

I just changed oil on my bike and was down to one spare filter. Immediately ordered them and 5 more WIX just showed up today. That is how I handle the dilemma... lol!

Wix is a great filter but why not K&N??? If your a racer or drag race fan. Why not support a business that supports racing. The K&N filters are a great line of filters...

Fran oil filters are horrible. Cut one apart. Cardboard end caps that degrade and shed fibers, and have actually been known to collapse. The worst choice out there.

Fram being shit isn't just internet BS, they really are shit!
The more expensive fram oil filters like the "synthetic" line are better but they cost the same or more than an even better Wix, or Mobil 1 or K&N filter, I would rather buy the known good filters I listed....

is that the oil filter you use on your pro stock engines?
Yes it is... I run K&N Oil Filter HP-1018 on all my Pro Stock engines since 2008. It has the large thread for increased oil flow and is a great filter and I have had zero issues using them. I use the PS-3003 on all the Sportsman engines with the same success.

Interweb B.S. and people that can't do a simple oil change.

If it were true there would be class action lawsuits. There is NOT ONE!

That said, use an HP filter not a PH filter.

System 1, been using the same one for 20 years on a remote mount with # 10 lines on a dry sump system, never a problem, bearings always spotless!

K&N is a Mobil 1 with a nut welded on the bottom.

One would have to be a NUT to pay extra money for a nut. :rolleyes:
