    I use the K&N mostly because it has the 1" nut welded on the bottom which makes for easy install and removal.

    I like the factory idea on oil and filter. Mobil 1 and AC Delco. And vertical is the GOAT!

    I have read a bunch on filters and I didnt hear of any benifit to going with mobil one filters. Correct me if I am wrong anyone, but I did use them in the past, but switched to ACdelco Gold filters.

    Anyone?

    Steve Foley had a Napa Gold filter on mines. I'm glad I got under there and changed it. I've used the Mobil 1 since 2000 though. A co-worker and I cut the M1 and a Fram in half the seen the difference and we've used M1 filters since then. He has passed on since then, but I still use them.

    I read this article.
    1st of all I had to get over all the Toyota is Superior bull crap then when I actually got into the reading the guy actually concluded that the Mobil 1 was superior but he chose the K&N because it was $9.49 and the Mobil 1 for him was $11 and some change.
    However, I've never paid $11 for a Mobil 1 filter. There at Autozone for $9.99.
    I've bought them in TX, OK & KS for that same price. Do what you please, I'll get $.50 out of the couch or under the seats in the V and get a Mobil 1.

    I used the AC Delco, because that is what GM uses, and that is what is at most autoparts stores. Well, one out of four stores, because the first three were out.

    Yeah, our AC Delco filters our very popular. I was told most stores stock up on Mondays and Tuesdays and if I wait till Saturday, they'll usually be out.

    Almost every car I have owned has used a filter common to a dozen other cars, so I can never find a filter for any of my cars. Which is why I have gone to ordering a dozen at a time off the internet. But it looks like the V will probably only need to be changed once a year. So not a big deal.
