Fram HP Series vs. K&N Oil filters
I cut open and compare a Fram HP4, Fram HP12 and a K&N HP2002 oil filter.
I have heard and seen alot of bad press on the regular fram oil filter's
but nothing on the HP series so I decided to check into it myself! You
might be suprised at the results.

Fram Oil Filter Failure, High Performance 2804-1 VW Ferrari DSCN0625
Keep those comments coming. But your fingers on a keyboard won't change the
three things below.
1. Many Ferraris you'll see at a car shows still run this filter.
2. The cheapest price I've found is from Summit, $13.95+shipping. One guy
on eBay sells for $16.95 with free shipping.
3. Most important, this mode of failure on the V8 motor is well-documented
on the internets, for example, here's another video, different owner, same
filter, same engine:
Here you can find descriptions and some stills of the same type of failure,
different owners, same filter, same engine:
Different owner, same experience here:
Please see also my new video, "UFI Spin On Filter teardown". The UFI did
not collapse in similar service:
Otherewise, generally this is the 2nd time I've discovered this model of
filter had collapsed the inner perforated tube hard against the standpipe,
significantly reducing the flow area. ( Both were long removed from
Ferrari service before I cut open the first one ) This mode of failure of
the 2804-1 is apparently ubiquitous on the 308 series Ferrari's, just a few
cold starts or track time will crush that perforated tube.
My first video, still the most views total but lately not the most per
