Many of us on the main list have said this 'till we are blue in the
face, but people just never learn- another lister lost his
turbo-conversion 90 to a Fram filter.
The minuscule element is held together at top and bottom with
cardboard, and the filters usually lack BOTH a bypass valve and the
checkback valve, both of which are a requirement. He's not the first
to have the filter collapse on him and munch an engine- so far two
other listers on the main list have echoed "happened to me too".
Mahle, Mann, Mobil 1- all are fine filters and have the features
necessary to keep your engine happy. Fram filters are orange for a
reason- it means DANGER, DO NOT USE.
"They that give up essential liberty to obtain temporary
safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." - Ben Franklin
