I just had my first oil change done today and come home to see this video. Not impressed with the build quality of the filter.


Just one more free oil change and then I'm doing my own with a better filter. This is garbage.

Which one are you going with?

I did my 2nd oil change last week and used this one again..

I mentioned in that video's comments if he could do the UPF66R. Hope he does. He's pretty good. Saw a video of a Pf48 Professional and Gold and oddly enough, the gold has the same build as our PF66.


If I can't get at least get the UPF66R, I'd probably go with the Wix. They're usually pretty solid. I've also always liked the Fram Ultra Synthetic however they don't have one yet, just their orange garbage can ultra guard. That would likely void the warranty.

So far I have used Pf66, UPF66Gold, and the WIX WL10351 , from the outside you can feel the weight differences in the UPF and the WIX over the pf66 for sure and the quality of the rubber seal is thicker more robust, waiting for a bit more to send oil analyst with the Wix filter to compare from the one I sent with UPF66gold filter sample

Good info, keep us updated! I might have to switch to Wix myself.. I've got 1 AcDelco left in the cabinet.
