Yea Yea I know people have talked about the 15400-PLM-A01 vs the 15400-PLM-A02

aka

A01 vs A02 and most will agree the oil filter made by filtech the A01 is a better filter but hard to find.

Well I found 15400-PLM-A01PE and it says made by Filtech

Honda Oil Filter 15400-PLM-A01PE

Replaces part numbers 15400-PLM-A02, 15400-PLM-A01,15400-ZJ1-004 and 15400-P0H-305. Part number 15400-PLM-A01PE is currently made by Filtech

xxx.parkeryamaha.com/hondaoilfilter15400-plm-a01pe.aspx

Wondering if anyone has tried this filter???

Since A01 are hard to find and if you find one on Amazon they will ship you the A02

Any thoughts?

Also I bought at NAPA the Ultra Brand 8 / NIPPON Oil Filter and I remember it said on box

Honda 15400-P0H-305

just wondering if anyone has used this filter before or and if its the same as the A01

Thanks

I haven't used the A01, used the A02 with no issues at all despite the bashing it gets due to who makes it. I did see a thread a month or so ago on the NIppon filter and it seemed to be a well built filter. You aren't going to run into any issues with any of these filters.

Yea I know and trust the A02 and as you said you saw the NIPPON aka Ultra Brand 8 they sell at Napa and they are a TANK of a oil filter...... However I miss the goodole days when you would buy a A01 made by filtech...

and If I can find some I buy them......

Just wondering if anyone else has used one..

b/c I know that oil filter is sold for motor cycles and other Honda Engines.. but all in all is the same as a A01 and is FILTECH.

Personally the Honda A01 vs A02 will never be over.. People will always perfer the A01 over the A02 if they can find it.. Heck I know people who order the HEMP oil filters in groups of 10 for 70$

anways.. just wondering if anyone has used one of the filters Im talking about or better yet show one cut open.

Thanks

If you found a A01 would you jump at the chance of useing it?

Also did you ever try the Ultra 8 / Nippon Oil filter that I opened when it was new?

Again.. If you went to the dealer and the part man came out and says.. WOW I found a A01 and a A02 for you car.. They are the same price.. What filter would you buy?

A01 or A02 ???

TBH I wouldn't jump at the chance to try the A01. Would I try it if it was available at my next OCI? Sure I would.
I haven't used the Nippon or Ultra 8 filter yet.
Around here if a parts guy found the A01 they'd probably keep it to themselves!!!! grin
That being said, I'd more likely get the A01 and store it.....

I found a guy at Amazon that is selling the A01s for $6.55 each.

and I the seller a email via Amoazon email system and sent him a picture of the A02 and the A01 and told him if he could make sure he has the A01. He said he has the A01. However sometimes he runs out of the A01s and has sent a A02 to a few people on mistake..

However he assured me I would get the A01s

I just like the ole days.. and most will agree the A01 is a better filter then the A02
