I appreciate all of the previous info in guiding me to the right spark plugs. Now I need to know what everyone thinks about spin-on oil filters. I used to use a AC Delco PF25. No longer available! Now what? A PF 1218 looks similar, but it has a drainback valve. Is that OK? I don't want a small oil filter on my new street/strip engine, like the PF454 replacement for the PF25. I could just start to look at a Moroso Racing filter, but I will be using this engine mostly on the street with an occasional run down the quarter mile. Next questions will be about fuel filtration and cooling fan (mechanical or electric).

Yeah the phrams tend to fall appart due to there crappy materials. The center tube in the middle is actually cardboard :eek: Oil filter is not something to cheap out on. I would recommend the motorcraft there only like 2 or 3 bucks and you can pick them up at autozone for any application. I have a K&N it was $12

FYI the AcDelco filters are now made by a different contractor and have gone down hill.

Napa Gold
Wix
K&N
Mobil 1
Purolator
Motorcraft

These are some of the best on the market right now

Napa gold and wix are the same filters painted differently

K&N and Mobil 1 filters are the same painted different and the K&N has a 1" nut on the end

Purolator and motorcraft are the same filters
