Non Honda Oil FIlters
Written by spacetiger_j... on 7/1/2010 at 12:08 am

Just to add something different to this thread; I use a reusable - FLO Stainless
Steel Oil Filter by PC Racing #PCS1.

Now all I have to essentially buy from now on is the oil.

I look in the files section and found the list of auto oil fiters that will work on our beloved PC. My questions. Has anyone used any of these filters on their PC? How long have you been using them? If so, how have they held up? Which one do

      I use the Bosch 3323. I like the longer length for more filtering. Bosch filters have a good reputation. The kid from the local trade school told me they ripped apart some filters in class and Bosch was one of the better ones and Frams were t

        My favorite filter is the K&N (KN-303). It costs more, but it is also easier to remove/replace due to the nut on the end of the filter. Since I am a big believer in K&N anyway (I use their air filter in my PC as well as every vehicle

        Do you use the same brand of filter in your car that your car is? Honda does not manufacture oil filters, they buy them from an oil filter manufacturer. I have yet to hear of a PC's engine having any problem linked to an aftermarket oil filte

        That's like saying "I only use Ford filters in my Ford" I have been using non-Honda filters for over twenty five years without any problems. I would guess the K&N air and oil filters are much better built than the Honda filters. Mo

        I use the Honda oil filter because 1) it is easy for me to acquire (right next to the Honda oil at the dealer) and 2) I have peace of mind knowing that it's good enough for Mother Honda. If anyone wants to buy me one of each of the common

          Your first mistake is that you insist on using "Honda" oil! The filter comparo and cutaway has already been done: http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Consumabl

              Yeah, I'll bit AGAIN. These endless threads are SO much fun. Purolator Pure One filters and Shell Rotella-T Synthetic There, I've said it again and I already have my nomex on. Read the available data and make your own choices folk

            I learned my lesson before with using non-Honda oil. My absent-mindedness (got 50 weight instead of 10W50) can't screw up an engine if I am using Honda oil. Trust me, it's in the best interest of my PC :-) --- In

    This should open up a lot of opinions ! I worked for Allied Signal for awhile. Have had 2 of their Fram filters go bad (leaked - bad seam roll). I've used Purolator filters for quite a while (20 years) w/ good results. My PC ta

      Based strictly on anecdotal evidence I steer clear of FRAM's low end filters also. Besides, I can buy the highly rated WalMart SuperTech filters for much less. --- In

      It has been some years back a similar oil filter comparison was done showing more/various manufacturers. It has been rearranged , this appears to be it now: http://minimopar.knize

          Juan, You are right, thats why I said essentially. I have not cleaned it yet, but my plan is to put it in a jar with some cleaning fluid and shake it. there are several cleaning fluids, so I'll post back on how well it works out. J

      I responded to the K&N thread for my '89 many years ago. After I got my '94 my son and I went on the 05 PCH ride. Result: No difference in acceleration or mpg. Decided to stay with the Honda on the '94. If I lived over there where you liv
