What does everyone think of using K&N oil filters on your everyday wheels? Are they really that good?

fram is over-rated, wish i could remember where the report on oil filters was. fram didn't rate too high. wix is a good filter and not too expensive, i prefer ac for my gm's.

to each his own. ive used lots of diff filters and i perfer fram because their the easiest to replace and work best for me

A couple months ago I put a Fram filter on my SB 350. When I fired up the engine, I noticed the oil pressure had dropped 10psi across the board.
I pulled the Fram and switched to an AC. Oil pressure returned to normal. I don't know if my luck turned sour and I just got a bad one, but I use AC now.

i havent the foggiest idea what caused that. unless it was the wrong filter or a defective one, or it wont on all the way *shrugs* im still sticking with my preference. castrol gtx 20w-50 and fram double guard

for oil filters i use what ever the parts store has on sale that week. They all seem the same to me. but for fuel and air i use k&n.

I agree with thecarguy. If you change your oil often enough, any brand name filter will do. Different air filters do make a difference. K&N for instance has proven horsepower gains. Oil filters do one job, filter oil.
