Fram makes the Mopar, STP, K&N, Mobile 1, Royal Purple (and other brands) of filters.

Fram has re-invented itself, admitting pass quality issues.

A real eye opener for me.

Nice find. I've been anti-Fram for quite some time. There was a period when they made junk. Sounds like the current management has really turned them around. It will take them years to overcome all the negative publicity. I wish them well but I'm probably going to stick with my PureOne filters for now.

If you are going to buy a Fram that fits, do your engine a favor & don't buy the cheaper ones

short filter #MO-339
long filter #MO-899
