    I use the Fram filter with the grip. I tried the K & N filter once and did not notice the difference so I went back to the Fram. My father and I have used Fram filters with Castrol brand oils for as long as I can remember with no problems.

    I heard Fram uses cardboard in their filters. Any truth?

    I use an Amsoil remote bypass setup which allowed me to relocate the filter to a position inside the frame rail under the driver seat or thereabouts. This setup has the advantage of easy accessibility, vertically mounted filters, and a bypass filter that lets me run the oil longer and it gets filtered better. I can use an extra capacity Purolator (L30416) in addition to the bypass, which brought my total oil capacity to more than 8 quarts.

    The OEM oil filter position on the 6.5's is pitiful at best.
