Don't Have a Blow Out

    Lately, I see more and more oil downs at the race tracks because of inadequate strength oil filters or screw together stainless hoses. I have also had many customers report "blown" filters in their daily driven street cars. Many people do not realize the reason I do not market anything but the Fram HP1 for standard full flow use on the street or strip is because all other conventional filters I tested failed in some way at some point. Some I got away with for as long as a year or two, however, I finally got caught. Do not take a chance on losing an engine or oiling down the track, having one blow out where no replacement is available. Use the HP1 Fram if you use the standard canister type filters. Naturally, this problem does not apply to the Oberg or the System 1.
    Oil lines - Stainless steel hose with hose clamps on the ends or screw together ends often blow apart and oil down the track. I, personally, would not use such hoses for low pressure applications let alone high oil pressure. That is the main reason I use only swedged end hoses that are designed to withstand up to 1000 lbs. pressure. Furthermore, I use only the Teflon material as it flows more, does not get hard and will not require periodical replacement like rubber or neoprene hose does. Neoprene or rubber oil lines get hard and must be replaced from time to time so are more costly in the long run. Even many other suppliers’ cheaper stainless steel braided hoses are often rubber inside and may also need to be replaced periodically.
