Default Oil Filters

Anyone know a place in the USA to buy FRAM RACING HP4 filters by the case?

I am paying over 20 bucks CDN in Toronto.

I want them by the case.

I agree Wix or K&N, Fram really isn't doing anything

Go to : www.Filter1.com Large Distributor of WIX Filters, cross that Fram number to a WIX Racing filter 51060R.

They will hook you up, part of our family's business, they do ship internationally, specialize in case quantity sales.

I agree 100%. WIX, or K&N, IMO are the best, but if I were stuck with a autopart store brand I would get a Purolator.

Cut them open and check out the guts if you think that they're all the same... They're not!

Advanced Auto Parts stores usually stock 2 HP4 filters at a time for about $8.50 a piece

I was told the Fram racing filter is different. I will cut both open and take a look.

You should defintely be using WIX racing filters (or even the regular WIX filter). They are by far the best for our boats. Fram is not in the same hemisphere.

I used to run WIX Racing.
