Framm it, no more Stechs

Anyone still finding Super tech oil filters at their local wally marts?

Both stores closest to me no longer carry them, not a single one in either store. But, the shelves are overflowing with Frams.

Bosch and Denso oil filters available from Rock Auto. Good place to get them and NGK spark plugs, along with huge selection of auto parts.

Been using the Bosch 3300, which also fits both my Subarus. Best filter for the money according to the tests I've seen.

I'm in luck - there are FOUR ST7317s on my shelf here in BC, and at least TWO in AZ!

F Wall Mart! I wouldn't shop there if it was free. In my area they are not even cheap on many items, just the loss leaders.

Picked up a Bosch 3323 at Auto Zone for $7.00 They had the 3300 also but that is one large filter for a bike, imo. Looks like the 3300 is really a car/truck filter as you wrote.

Bosch 3300 oil filter is regular OEM sized 2.625" OD x 2.5"... Bosch 3323 is taller at 2.625" OD x 3.25".

I use the Purolator Pure One- readily available, same one fits my car. Amazon is also a source. They make one slightly longer in the same diameter, too, which I sometimes get for the car. (Saab 9-2x, built by Subaru). Sometimes I get the Bosch, when it's in a package deal.

Purolator PL14612 is OEM size, and Purolator PL14610 is a bit taller.

That and OEM are the only two for me. I had a cheapie filter cost me an engine in my '65 Impala SS a bunch of years ago. I'll never make that mistake again.
