Where and how is your filter mounted to require a drain back valve?

In the stock location you can go either way,  it is really so close to the oil pump it makes little/no difference.

If you are mounted remote and have a long line run or a large capacity oil cooler you should run a drain back filter, unless the filter is mounted really low relative to the motor.

Wix, NAPA gold,  K&N, Amsoil are all great filters IMO.

What are your concerns?

I used an Oberg exclusively on the rock dodger.

Alway broke the motor in on an AC Delco. Sponsors sometimes dictate what you can use. .  😉

I always thought because they weren't available everywhere.

They used to be decent filters. Don't know anymore.

For the very little difference in cost, I always run a Wix 1060 or a Napa Gold 1060...the same filter.
A $3 AC filter is well, a $3 filter. Feel lucky?

Ive never had an engine failure (that was related to oil) when using an Ac Delco filter. I guess thats why i ask

My boat now i can only fit an ac delco, and that barely fits as it is.

I was just wondering if there were any proven documented cases where they are the cause of failures. Like there are with Fram.
