Am I able to use the Fram "Tough Guard" oil filter? In other words, should I use this product or do you recommend something else?

When it comes to oil filters I've only used Mitsu's OEM. They work perfectly; no guessing or wondering. Their filters got me 140K+ miles out of my Eclipse so I'm sticking with them.
OEM :dsm:

Hell no, never use fram. The gasket sometimes will get stuck to the housing from what I have read.

I always use Mobil 1 filters. Always check the box though, some [email protected] switched a $3.00 filter into a Mobil 1 filter box and I got stuck with the damn thing! :mad:

Sorry, I have to bring this back from the dead. Im getting close to doing the oil change on the Evo and I happen to have a 1g DSM oil filter sitting at home. Now if I remember right I was going to use this on my 2g DSM becuase I believe people mention they filter better then the small filter the 2g comes with. So I looked up the filter numbers at Autozone for the Evo and The 2g and their the same one. So is it safe to use the 1g small fat filter on the Evo?
