    I only use Genuine Honda oil filters but it came across that 15400-PLM-A01/A02 is USA and Canadian made and both suck. I was hearing that the S2K filter (15400-PCX-004) was made in Japan good to use. Will the S2k Filter fit my B16A SIR-II Engine?

    Because the canadian one is made by Honeywell which is also partnered with Fram. And i guess the american one is not as good as japanese made ones

    Mobil1 > *.*
    I have never used a mobil 1 filter, but we took apart 4 types of filters when i worked at AutoZone.
    Fram == ValueCraft == STP
    all those ones look and feel exactly the same on the inside.
    the mobil1 filters have ridges and style inside =]
    Oh, i still use STP filters.
    STP filters are produced by a company, who has an employee, who knows a guy that is married to a lady who has family in japan.
