Thumbs up 1999 SVT Contour - OEM Filter vs. Amsoil stock replacement filter Dyno

HTPerformance has brought on board Amsoil products, but rather than taking Amsoil's word and data for being accurate, we decided to do some of our own. The graph below speaks for itself.

Expect more Dyno data threads to continue to pop up in the HTPerformance forum!

We were all surprised that a stock-replacement drop in filter could add 5-6 HP, but being there, it was true. They did a few pulls before swapping the filter, and a few after, and got the same difference in power between all the pulls.

The awesome thing is, Jason totally called 160whp before the car went on the dyno :D

Very cool, 6whp from a filter change is a pretty big deal!

AMSOIL is the ONLY company in the market that is offering the superior performance of nanofiber technology air and oil filtration.

If you guys would like to order filters, check out the group buy/group discount section: http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/s...58#post2564358

If you see how well we did with just changing a filter, how much will changing the other fluids in your car help?! Only one way to find out. Try them out!

If you'd like to become a Preferred Customer click HERE.

Cheers,

Great testamonial besthaticouldo! You point out some key things that AMSOIL products tackle.

By using the best performing products you are able to extend your change intervals and wreak every penny out of oil, oil filter, and air filter changes, not to mention all of the gear lube and in Derrick's case transfer case and differential lube changeovers.

You are very welcome Derrick! Glad to help you out.
