Has anyone used a K&N oil filter on their Duramax? If not what filter do you prefer and why.
I use Baldwin B1441. WIX makes a filter so does Delco. Do a search you can find several threads discussing this.CtChevy427;1569252; said:Has anyone used a K&N oil filter on their Duramax? If not what filter do you prefer and why.
I agree. OEM filters. Same here.RI Chevy Silveradoman;1570341; said:Strictly AC Delco for fuel and oil, and Allison for the Allison. I feel that the AC Delco's are made very well. The Allison is also a very rugged filter. Just my opinion.
No and no.Did'nt you see the smiley toothy face?There is absolutely nothing wrong with AC Delco products.I've used them forever-------until recently when I saw the light and realized they're priced MUCH higher than other comparable quality filters that's all.RI Chevy Silveradoman;1574278; said:[email protected]
I sense a little hostility and animosity here. Is there anything wrong with AC Delco filters?
No you can't.When AC-Delco used to be available at K-mart and Caldor I think,sure I would buy them--this was of course before 2001 when the Dmax came around.If you know where to get a AC delco fuel filter for less than $19.56,give me a PM. Like I said,AC/Delco is real good quality--just too pricey when compared to equal quality Wix/Napa Gold/Baldwin,etc.I run Wix/Napa gold on both my on and off road iron except for my Cat engine because NOONE makes a better filter than Cat.RI Chevy Silveradoman;1576176; said:Tuney 443:
If you seek out the right places, you can find AC Delco filters for the same or less than others. You must search and seek. I can't give to much info about where or how much because when I do I get spanked! In any event, the AC Delco filters as well as Allison filters, seem well made and of good quality. I have used Napa and Wix before on other vehicles, and had good luck with them. I have never seen a filter from Mobil 1 in my neck of the woods, and I have not tried Racor.
As for K&N, I thought they were overpriced.
And where would this be? Thought you were going to PM me.RI Chevy Silveradoman;1576874; said:I bought oil filters for $8.00 each and fuel filters for $20.00 each on-line. All AC Delco.
As far as CAT goes, I won't deny that.
