Question Royal Purple Oil Filter.... ???

I'm gonna try and track one down and try it out. But before I do I wanted to hear from anyone who's tried one out. ....

If its any more expensive than a Delco filter I see no reason to bother. Sorry if thats no help, but its the truth.

This is kinda what I needed to know. How was it not fitting? Was the canister too big to fit were it should, doesn't thread... Etc?

Royal Purple Filters are superior in ppm contamination and flow rate. A must have for anyone who needs to beef up their drive-train for an application like lets say... Armoring your Trans Am for war near the boarder.

I don't run an oil filter, i simply throw a hanes 100% cotton sock in a latex surgical glove and ziptie it to the oil filter adapter.

guys let me serious here, its very good oil filter, I try it and I like it. Last time I drove 8 hours to my friends house, and stop by pepboy ( only pepboy carry it atm ). It had synthetic media. If we have pepboy around here I would buy it again or K&N oil filter.

It is the best off the shelf filter you can buy. However, unless you are changing your oil at 10K+ intervals there is no need to run it. It was designed primarily to last as long as the oil would. A M1 or K&N will still be a high flow filter for a few bucks less
