    same money spent on a strap wrench instead of a socket can turn any filter though

    Sockets r easier and can be put on a filter at a greater distance. I couldn't even tell you where my filter wrench is anymore. Now if you use a lift on each and every change I guess that's a moot point.

    Do the filters that fit the LSx's.
    Data on filters that are different sizes will not be apples to apples if you want to compare them to a PF61 size.

    My vote is for the following, in order, for the long filters for the LS1, everything based off the AC Delco PF 58/59/61 size, with a drainback valve.

    1) AC Delco PF61
    2) FRAM PH3675
    3) K&N HP2006
    4) Mobil M1206 (not sure if correct, use equivalent to K&N 2006)
    5) Purolator L20123
    6) Purolator Pure-One equivalent to L20123

    7) Supertech filter equivalent to PF61
    8) wix/napa 51522
    9) Motorcraft FL331
    10) amsoil SDF64
    11) AC PF58 if available ( no drainback valve, see how it affects flow)
    12) AC PF59

    If you do this, it would be really cool if you could document all the filters, all the innards are the same like all have a drainback valve, and the same oil is used (brand & viscosity) and the temperature of the oil.
    It would also be very cool to see how different viscosity oil affects the pressure/flow numbers, like for all oil at room temp of 70F like a 0w-20 or 0w-30 synthetic vs a 5w-30 mineral vs delvac 15w-40 oil.
    Would it be possible to get data on oil at operating temperature, say 180F and higher?

    Yup. I have always felt the previous room temp oil filter studies were flawed. I mean running 80 degree Fahrenheit oil through a filter ain't simulating real world worth a damn is it I'll post up the testing criteria and equipment used....

    So, Sarge, what brand oil filter are you currently using in Oprah?

    Is the NAPA Gold the same as Wix? Baldwins? Is that a special premium racing filter, or a sponsor for Oprah, or both?

    I am truly interested in the outcome of this one. Test the standard LSX short filters which fit under the skid plate. I currently use AC UPF 44 filters and could see the difference on the oil pressure gauge when I changed to them.
    Would like to see results for AC 46, Amsoil, Mobil, Wix, Napa, and Super Tech for those out there who use discount filters.

    We may all be surprised at the results. Super Tech for instance is purportedly made by Champion Labs.
