    You can take this for what it's worth, but here is a small study that a guy did with some oil filters. Some of the findings aren't surprising, but some are. I always thought that Fram was one of the best. Check it out.

    I always buy Delco parts, I believe that they are the best stock replacement parts you can get for GM vehicles (as far as starters, alternaters, etc... go)... and I don't know about where you guys live, but in Flint Delco parts are cheap too.

    I dont like Fram products. I think they are some of the worst on the market. In my opinion. If you are going to use fram you might as well save some money and buy Wall mart brand cheapo filters. Even they have more filtering element than fram filters.
    I usually always use AC delco or Purolator. Both of these filters always score in the top in all the filter tests.

    I think I have found the proper one from John Deere /forums/images/icons/cool.gif , but until I know for sure I am using Wix. I wonder if CAT makes filters....hmmmmmm, some research is necessary.
