    Question Who uses the AC Delco PF63 oil filter in lieu of PF48?

    Would appreciate ALL comments both pro and con.



    I am thinking about going to the PF63 on my 2013 Yukon Denali.



    The dealer tells me, "as long as it is a AC Delco oil filter, it will not void the factory warranty"



    Thanks in advance.

    That's the longer canister? If so, I have run both styles on our Suburban without any issues.

    Yes, it is about 1" longer than the PF48.

    That's it then. Lots of guys have run the longer canister filter under the theory that more filter media is better than less.

    I don't think they can void your warranty because you use a larger filter as long as it has the same pressure release valve and the same drain back capabilities.
    My ride is a 2002 Camaro SS SLP #3296 with 30k, LTH, 3" Y, CME, Frost tune, K&N, ported TB, Blackwing lid, Bellows, MSD, Denso Iridium, and 85mm MAF, Bilsteins, Eibach springs, SLP strut brace, Adj. Panhard, TA Girdle, UMI, Pro 5.0, Nitto NT555

    I stopped using AC delco filters 3-4 years ago when I found out they went to the cheap paper E-core design. Not a good filter anymore. I use the Wix #51522 long filter (4.5" tall) If that doesn't fit, the Wix #51042 is 3.4" tall.

    My understanding is that the "e-core" filters will have a "e" at the end of the part number, (i.e. PF63 vs. PF63E).

    Wix, Napa Gold, and Fram XG are what I try to go with. I have on occasion also used Bosch and K&N.

    I still like the K&N filter. Good, solid construction, great filtration and you get the 1" nut on top to break it loose and you can wire it down so that it will not spin off. I feel it's worth a couple of bucks more because you are trusting a 12 dollar part to protect a 6 thousand dollar motor. Why wouldn't you use one ?

    You might find this study interesting. Sarge posted this a few years back.

    K&N is a good filter and graded well, but got an F for price paid per filtration compared to other filters that do just as well. You could save a few bucks with several other selections that still do the job.

    Click on the grade sheet and compare.

    Oil Filter Comparison Study - GM Truck Central


    The Wix and Napa Gold Jeff mentioned above are 1 in the same filter and an excellent choice. Believe it or not the XG line of Fram filters scored some of the best numbers (even better than K&N), and they aren't priced bad, about half of what you pay for a K&N. Wix filters is what Tony Bischoff recommended for my fathers brand new $15,000 engine

    My understanding is you talk major SH!T about people on this board and you make up lies!!! No one on this forum should help you or give you any advice at all!

    You are nothing but a lying D-Bag! The SH!it you made up about me, should be grounds for you being banned!!!

    If this place is so dead, then why do you continue too post on here?

    Well that took a bad turn. Are you still bothered by Steve? That thread and your discussion with him was over 6 years ago. I'd forget about it, not worth the time to worry about things on an internet forum. Hell I can't remember shit from a week ago

    I'm here to help anyone that wants it as well as learn new things, since I'm an old school hotrodder myself. I don't mind that it's Steve or anyone else. I don't have a problem with anyone on this board. I simply posted that oil filter comparison for everyone to see and make your own decisions on a good filter, there are several on there that are excellent choices. The best part of that study is that it was an independent study with non bias information.

    Yeah, your right...my apologies! Didn't mean to hijack the thread, he said some shit about me personally that was WAY out of line and is totally BS and not true!!! I just can't figure out way he said what he did?

    He attacked me for no reason and I think if someone said what he did, they might be a little pissed?

    Great To Be Back San Diego!!!!

    Yeah 10-4, I see what's going on now. Kahana was nice enough to send me that link just before you did, lol. Funny I don't visit the Western section and I live in AZ

    Now that I understand why, I can see where you are coming from. I thought this was an old issue until I saw the recent posts in the Western section. Not sure what's up with Steve, I've never really had any problems with him (or anyone that I recall) I assume he has his issues and that's his business. I just didn't want to see things fly off the handle and was unaware this was a current ongoing thing.
