Ok here we go I went and bought one today its a Bosch Premium Oil Filter; part #72215, I've searched on the internet for it but came up empty handed so maybe someone else can find it and give a direct link to it, or maybe even a vendor here on the site can get a hold of them and sell them. We'll good luck...

Edit: ok I actually found this link and looks like they sell it on there site you guys can check it out, its got other listings as well but I set it up for 2006 Cobalt SS/SC for my car but you can advance your search with your year make and model, but heres the link you guys can check it out. http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/x,ca...,parttype,5340

yeah i also use bosch premium filter, ran me about 12-14 dollars. noticed slight difference with my idle and rev. but who knows that could just be from changing the oil. i know bosch is a huge hydraulic company. used to work for them. so i can trust their products. only thing i could find around here without ordering one offline and i wasnt puting a 7 dollar filter in lol. got it from my local autozone

i've always had good luck with AC Delco and Wix. I'd trust some paper towels over a fram filter...

Man... this forum is pretty funny.

OEM doesn't always mean superior, your oem filter is probably made by the aftermarket company you despise.



Some 2007 GM Ecotec 2.2 filters... - Bob Is The Oil Guy

But in all honesty... if I had to pick a filter, I would go with the Mann filter (german company)





Anyone who actually knows anything about oil filters can tell that is a good unit. But then again, anyone who knows about anything about filters wouldn't stress about a cartridge filter that already has tons of filter media with a built in anti drain back valve.

I use Mobil-1. It is not a paper/cardboard element like the others available. It is a high tolerance synthetic fiber that is woven together. It holds much more crud than an ordinary filter, and it also provides better oil flow.

It costs a little bit more but AMSOIL has 15,000 mile filters now for the LSJ's I know for sure and I know from experience that my engine has also done well to run 15,000 miles on the Signature Series 0W-20 Full synthetic oil. I've been a dealer for over 2-3 years now running 0W-20 and I wouldn't recommend anything I wouldn't use in my own car. Before AMSOIL made their newer 15,000 mile filter I always liked using WIX filters. They are good down to around 0.14 microns but i didn't go more than about 8,000 miles without changing them. To each his own though.

If anyone needs a part number or more information let me know and I'd be glad to help even if you go through an AMSOIL dealer closer to where you live. I'm always happy to help others whenever possible.

As much as everyone hates fram, they finally made a decent filter. Called fram ultra. Felt filters with metal housings too, not paper/plastic. Only cost $10
