BTW other than those, that looks awesome.

Ditto. Those things are junk. They come apart internally and either fill your engine with dirty oil or fiter parts. Those Express cats make great high speed party barges.

I think fram hp4 filters are an excellent oil filter for race or high performance applications. Regular passenger car fram filters are garbage and collapse internally due to higher oil pressure and thicker viscosity. The best filters made in my opinion are wix racing filters but to my knowledge they dont have a filter for your larger oil filter housing.

I agree Jeff. Also the NAPA racing filters are very small.
