Protech Autosport Duratec Oil Filter Adapter

Protech Autosport Duratec Oil Filter Adapter - $65.00

For those looking to add a larger Duratec oil filter to their Focus, Protech Autosport makes a great adapter kit. The kit comes with a wider oil filter so that it doesn't affect the car's clearance while offering better filtering capacity.

I've worked out a great deal with them where they are only charging us labor if you send in your old part via a core exchange. Plus they'll throw in a free Wix Filter.

These guys normally specialize in built motors for Mazda3 and Mazda6.






Price: $65.00 (With Core Exchange)
To Order: Call Protech at 512-733-8324


Kit Includes:
1) Oil Filter Adapter
2) Wix Oil Filter


Larger Oil Filter Benifits:
1) More Filtering Capacity
2) Extends Oil Life
3) Allows Better Oil Flow



Quick How-To Guide:








Comparison of the new oil filter against stock size.

Is there another car that the filter is the stock size for, or do they provide any part numbers for oil filters?

$65 + a core exchange? That's very high. I would only consider this if one were out of warranty.

What would be the price without the core? For cars like the Fusion that have a stupid cartridge system.

They provide the part number and you can then purchase this from any auto parts store that carries Wix filters.

The new filter will be a little less than an inch longer than the current. So I guess it depends on the size of the oil sandwich you are going to use.

That is essentially only an hour's labor they are charging us so its not high at all.

I'm not sure, I guess you can give them a call and ask. However I think the cost of the stock housing is around $50.

Yeah its definitely a lot wider. They chose a filter that is wider on purpose so that it doesn't affect the clearance.
