Oil Pressure ?'s - Frams?

Ever see a close-up of a Ferrari engine that did _not_
have a Fram?
I've used Fram for many many years too, on many
different types of vehicles, all with great results.
Could the diff in pressue be due to an old (clogged)
filter Vs a new clean one?
Fram claims high-technology, quality filtration and
low pressure drop, FWIW.
I will be switching away from Fram now, because my new
employer does not like personally like 'those orange
filters' and I don't want him to see them on my cars
anyomre. When in Rome.....
