Freinds don't let friends run Fram filters.

AC Delco filters use to be a good filter years ago but have been cheapened up and the quality is gone.

Well, I'm just going to politely say I won't run one in any engine I have. Some other filters I won't run are SuperTech and Fram.

Re: How do you block the oil filter bypass?

ACDelco of today is not the AC-Delco of yesteryear (note the missing hyphen). It was pretty much sold off after the bankruptcy and many parts are low bid Asian imports, like oil filters.

This doesn't mean all ACDelco parts are bad. ACDelco "professional" is assembly line OEM grade. If you need an AC condenser, ACDelco units will have the correct number of tubes, the aftermarket is usually less tubes which means less cooling efficiency.

Pass on their oil filters. Reach for a known good brand name. Hastings, Wix, Mobil1, K&N... If you have piston rings from ANYBODY, chances are good Hastings made them.

Also, pass on any/all ACDelco ignition parts - all chinese made and to incorrect tolerances across the board!

Yup I couldn't agree more... Blocking the bypass and running a cheap filter on a circle track engine is asking for trouble. Guys are always having to jump on the track with a cold engine. It's going to happen.... Either don't block it or run a racing filter. You could make a case for it both ways. I've ran it both ways and don't have engine failures.

Never had to run a Racing filter to date on my circle track engines, And there are a lot of engines that never get any oil temp and no problems more so the cars that have to be push started with 3 or 4 laps they are racing.

I see what you did there..You mean specifically a Racing filter like 51060R which is what I generally run. I was thinking more along the lines of not running a cheap filter. I can't say a 51060 wouldn't work because I've never tried it but I know a fram won't. I get nervous when i don't see oil pressure. I know the "R" filter is a little more free flowing.

Re: How do you block the oil filter bypass?

Wix filters are good, I personally will not run a Racing Wix when I can get the flow with better filtration from another brand. This is just my opinion. There was a discussion earlier about it.

Re: How do you block the oil filter bypass?

After reading all this, still have no idea what is the correct oil filter to run. ZZ4 roller block 383, melling hv standard pressure pump, 8 quart oil pan. Builder recommended the blocked bypass and an HP4 filter. Sounds like it's not liked here. I've always run Napa filters and never had anything bypassed before.

Not following what you mean by "never had anything bypassed before"??
In stock form you had a bypass in the filter mount & this is what we usually plug so all oil goes through the filter 100% of the time
I would for sure not do this with a Fram filter but I do not use Fram so for me this is moot

For a filter I would stick with your NAPA Gold, it is a Wix
IE
1061 NAPA = 51061 Wix

Re: How do you block the oil filter bypass?

There has been some changes, I don't think Wix is making for NAPA anymore. Just to be sure, you should be looking for the actual Wix version.

Step up to the XP version (51960XP), it has that better synthetic media backed by a wire mesh.

Re: How do you block the oil filter bypass?

The only difference between the 51060 & 61 is the 60 has the "anti drain back valve which is totally unnecessary in any Chevrolet V8 application with the filter upright as oil rarely drains uphill

As far as the XP series, I agree, it is an excellent filter but I have had zero issues with the cellulose line so I see no reason to change considering the first two I use get tossed usually on the first or second day

Interesting on the Napa filters,,, I have cut open a couple of customer supplied Napa 1061's within the last month or two & they certainly look to be the Wix but for me this is a non issue as all I normally use is genuine Wix
