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.

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.

Motorcycle Repair: Inside a Harley Davidson Oil Filter and a Fram Oil Filter
In this video I show what is inside a Harley Davidson Super Premium Oil
Filter, a Fram PH16 ExtraGuard Oil Filter, a Kawasaki Cartridge Oil Filter
and a Kohler Oil Filter. I don't have any efficiency specs on the filters,
but you can get a good idea of the quality just from seeing the material
used to construct the filters.
Most spin-on filters use a paper element to filter out contaminants in the
motor oil. Higher end filters sometimes use a paper element mixed with
fiber material to increase efficiency, and some filters use only a fiber
Harley Davidson filters are made by Champion Laboratories. Fram
manufactures their own filters, and I am not sure who makes the Kawasaki
filter or the Kohler. The Kohler filter looks similar to the Harley
Davidson oil filter, so they may be manufactured by the same company.
Personally, I prefer to use OEM filters because they are made to the
manufacturers specifications, and are generally a superior quality oil
filter. The quality of the oil and oil filter is something the consumer
should be aware of when buying the product, but also when choosing a
service center. This type of service can be very competitive, so service
centers will attract consumers by offering a less expensive service, and
costs are cut by offering a less expensive oil and oil filter. The saying
"You pay for what you get" seems to apply here, so be careful when choosing
a service center.
