My son Chris sent me this link for a great comparison test. I know I'll be switching brands. This guy tests all kinds of stuff.

Interesting.  I always put FRAM in my cars. 

Guess I won't anymore.

I'm not a real K+N fan. My motorcycle has been modified for a K+N filter. When I replaced the filter, I had to buy a quart of the "special" oil. Which means the oil will probably outlast me and the motorcycle. :pissed:
Maybe I should put the oil in my will. Anybody want it?  :biggrin:

Always figured K&N was just what he showed, hi flow low filter.  I too have just used Fram, looks like change should be in order.

My K&N is what gave me problems a few years ago in Moab when I was trying Double Whamy. I've used paper elements since then.
