I've been using those orange filters for oh, almost 30
years now. My new employer doesn't like those orange
filters so I'm switching all my cars to those nice
shiny black ones that wiegh like 2-3x Vs the orange
ones. (must be a reason the orange ones are so
light.....) I'll be looking for any changes in oil
pressure as well as for reduced delay in pressure
build-up when the engine is first started. Will share
all results.
