Would the really low micron rating of the fram ultra not hurt oil flow? Any trouble with these clogging before 10k?

Go direct with Motorking (Fram Rep). He will give you the psi ratings for your application.

I have seen it mentioned that the Ultra can cause start up rattle, but that seems to be application specific.

What about the Fram Racing version of the Ultra?

FWIW: I've used the FRAM Ultra in my car applications (two different cars) for a good while now. No start-up rattles.

Agree its app specific. It makes my 6.0 lq9 Escalade tick and slap at startup more noticeably than lesser efficient filters. So I don't use the Ultra anymore on that engine. Use the TG.

The XG probably outflows the TG...

The old internet falsehood that high efficiency means high delta-p and flow restriction will never die. It's full synthetic media that allows High flow, high efficient and high holding capacity.

Start up rattle is typically a leaking ADBV ... not "flow restriction" of the filter.

Yep, that's why start up rattle isn't caused by "flow restriction" ... but a bad ADBV instead.
