Well here she is. The Champion oil filter 7317 size. I really like the container it comes in. Very unique. The filter itself is very heavy like a Mobil 1 filter. Obvious it has a silicone ADBV. Louvers were opened very well and bigly. It is basically a Mobil 1 oil filter for $6.99 everyday price. Nygotha got information that it is 99% @ 20 micons. Nothing wrong with that as that's very good.

Now for the bad side of things... Only available in store purchase from Pep Boys. Which if you don't like them or if one isn't around then you can't find these anywhere else for an in store purchase. They are available online for purchase. A number of shops are "supposed" to be using them near me. Which is pretty cool.

Overall I am liking this filter quite a bit. I don't go to Pep Boys often at all... But I decided to take a trip to one in Petersburg yesterday. Hadn't been to that store at all. A little over a hour drive maybe. Well I took the scenic route so in all likelihood it would have been fifty minutes if I had gone the straight way there. The store was good. Had good selection of products in oil, wipers, chemicals, batteries etc... I would go there again. Beats driving the other way east to Newport News Pep Boys. Tons and tons of stop lights and traffic going that way.





Hope you guys have a good day today. And can stay dry given how the weather is east of the Mississippi.

Are the threads as messed up as they look in the 2nd pic? They don't look very 'sharp'.

Cute tortie, btw. wink

On my phone the pics look pretty good except the one. I have a very, very difficult time trying to take a decent picture with my phone. My illness makes exceptionally fine motor skills a real big challenge. And these new fangled phones are very sensitive to any and I mean any vibration or unsteadiness. Which I have. A lot. It makes it almost impossible for me to take pictures that are one hundred percent right on.

I'd say quite favorably. It is rather heavy, has very good capacity and efficiency. It would be right on par with a Wix regular filter or Napa Gold. A good buy at the price it is.

Add my name to the "cute kitty" column.

I guess the name of the game now is, "Avoid the current bad filter".

Glad you're happy with the purchase. It's ironic that one has to go to Pep Boys for something "good". PB is a toy store which happens to sell oil.
Are their tires ANY good al all? I'd assume not.

Cool and groovy packaging like this tube or Purolater's polygonal BOSS box is scary to me. Fluff for consumers, I say.

Best of luck

Does it say where the filter is made?

Base bypass or is it at the far end?

Thanks car51. I tried.

Yeah it's 42 here and looking like rain is coming.

The boss here is doing good. She's happy because some of our birds are back in town. Yesterday she was making a chirping sound watching the birds through the window. Funny how cats make that noise when they see a bird. I guess it is to try to get the bird to come closer to them so the attack is easier.

Tires... Not truly sure. I just got 4 Cooper Ultra Grand touring tires for my Altima 3.5 coupe from a independent shop. These tires are very, very good so far. About a 9.5/10 I'd say.

Yeah welloiled I'd like to see one cut open after a run too. I'd bet very good money these filters would hold up great. Just like the Mobil 1 filters usually do. We did have one "skunk" of a newer 20k mile Mobil 1 filter on here that was a brand new cut and post. But on average by a wide margin the Mobil 1 filters gave held up really well.

Well bmwtechguy it's made south of the border... Go figure. The bypass is at the far end I think.

With a lowish retail price for a premium type filter, I figured it was made in Mexico or China.
