    they are for motorcycles but most of them are the same as car filters only smaller

    almost all major brands reviewed

    do keep in mind this is an older page but most of them have not changed

    once again my honda filters are made by Toyo Roki not Fram but for cars I've heard from a few dealer parts guys that they have 2-3 different hondafilters from different companies but I've yet to hear of Fram making one for honda

    Good read. Less detail, but more filters than the NTPOG article.

    We use purolater oil filters (the electric blue ones- can't think of the name) on our cars (civic and S13). This is the first time I've used one on the civic but my girl has been using em for about 2 yrs. No leaks, and it appears to keep the engine running smoothly.

    I think the OEM Honda ones work extremely well. Other than that I do use Fram when I'm in a pinch, and when things are in the black I'm using K&N. The K&N is a bit of overkill for it's size.

    The Honda OEM is deep and wide (like Ricki.... Oh forget it)

    the guy in the above thread (sleepercivic) says he just bought a honda filter and it says "made by fram" on it.

    ive been using the pure one filters for some time now since i cut one in half and found a metal frame around the filter like the conular air filters use to keep them from collapsing. they also have the metal end cap. i hate to say it but motorcraft/ford also makes a great oil filter built alost the same as the pure one. i also hear good things from k&n but have not tried them yet - too expensive.

    but then again, whats the difference when you change your oil every 1000 miles for fun :spin:
