Dry starts don't do that much damage? Are you serious right now??

You won't be saying that when your truck throws a rod out of the oil pan.

Ya, especially when you hear dry start-up your actually hearing/referring to the lifters. Snapped rods come from over-heating and excessive cylinder pressure. You should notice low oil pressure from bearing wear before the rod snapped, unless your a *******.

I also said I despise Fram and will do early oil change to put a good filter in, Wix.

Dry startups don't do much damage? It's the cumulative damage that is the concern here.
Which I've talked about already. If you didn't notice.

In another post of yours you said that people were pointing out the bad things and never the good about Fram filters.
Again what are the good points?
If you know they are crap why use them at all? Purolaters are 100% better and cost the same or slightly more, not worth the risk IMHO.
Do a google search on Fram oil filters and the ONLY site that has anything positive about them is www.fram.com.
I do notice a bunch more than I am given credit for.

No one is holding an AR-15 to your head forcing you to read this thread.
If anything should a newbie reads this thread he will learn to stay away from these piss poor filters.

Oil filters are like condoms. They are your protection.

Do not use fram oil filters. When my friend bought his car, it had a fram filter on it. When we did an oil change, we cut open the old fram filter and found cardboard inside. Might as well have put the filter box as an oil filter . They're junk like the consensus has said.

Pep boys has Motorcraft filters for $3-$4, depending on the part#. I'd stick with Motorcraft. If you can't find that, then Mobil-1 or Wix.

I heard if any other filter other than a Motorcraft filter was used, it voided the warranty. I was told when my mustang was still under warranty that I could change my own oil but had to use a Motorcraft filter. If another was used and something happened to the motor, my warranty would be done..

Jaws,
Hi, I am the tech manager at FRAM. The Ultra filter from FRAM is the best filter we make. It features a silicone antidrainback valve, steel end caps, a stainless steel pleated screen wrapped in two layers of full synthetic glass filter media. It has 99% efficiency at 10-20 microns using the ISO 4548-12 test protocol, holds 32 grams of dirt till full, the highest oil filter capacity in the entire industry. I have run them on my 1998 4.0l Ranger for the last 140k miles, it is pushing 200k now and running strong. Always use Mobil 1 oil and change every 10k.
There are a few similar filters in the industry, Royal Purple (22grams cap and 16$ price) Amsoil (23 grams cap and 17$ price) and Bosch Distance (22 grams cap and 14.99$). You can see, the Ultra is a bargain.
