I use the GM Premium filter, UPF-44 on my Corvette. As was mentioned, you can not use a longer filter on the Corvette. I know someone who tried, it scrapped on speed bumps !

I use 5W-30 Mobil 1 and change according to the computer (uses rpm's, engine temperature), which is usually about 7500 miles. I use my car as a daily driver and for short trips too (I bought it to drive it).

Recommended change for my year (1998) is 10,000 miles. Later years GM went to 15,000 miles recommended.

I am running the Amsoil 5W-30 and recently posted my first oil change results here in the oil analysis section. Based on the results, I was quite happy with the oil and have re-filled the engine once again with Amsoil 5W-30. I also bought a case of 4 gallon jugs for my other cars that are now running Mobil-1. I haven't been able to buy the Mobil-1 in Wal Mart and the quart price is almost that of the Amsoil, hence the switch. I will also run the Amsoil a little longer in the other cars then I was running the Mobil-1.

I think the K&N HP1007 would be a better choice for the C5 than the UPF44. When I get a C5 that will most likely be the filter I will run (although who knows, it could be ten years before I can afford a used C5, so another oil filter might tickle my fancy by then) [Smile]

After all the marketing hype it doesn't really make any difference which full flow filter you use. The full flow filter only has one purpose. It is to remove the large engine damaging abrasives in the oil of a good engine. You still must drain the oil and put in new oil. The only escape from dirty oil engine wear and oil drains is to install a submicronic bypass oil filter. Then you have to deal with oil lines and find a place to mount the filter. This is easy for me. You would think it would be hard to sell someone a filter that doesn't clean oil then tell them to come back in 3,000 miles so you can drain the dirty oil.
When I started using submicronic bypass filters back in 1963 oil turned black very fast. Install a submicronic bypass filter and the oil turned clear. It is very misleading now days. Modern fuel injected engines of the gasoline variety can have very dirty oil that still looks clean.
A lot of people bad mouth the Fram. It's just a full flow filter. I have one on my Camry. I notice they have Fram filters on the James Bond cars. I don't think they would deliberately install a filter that would cause them problems. I think those are Aston Martins with Ford engines. December Motor Trend.
I started with Frantz bypass filters in 1963; signed up as a Motor Guard dealer in 1966; Gulf Coast filters in 1993. I've been around the block a few times. Filters are not that complicated.
