What oil filter do you use in your 330 GT?

If your car is #8767, I would think that most would recommend the Baldwin B253 filters.

We use Baldwins. The casing is much thicker and seems to be secured better to the bottom flange.

I think the Baldwins are much better than the Frams.

Several blogs have reported pretty questionable findings over the years after cutting up Fram filters for inspection.

Baldwins are great. I also enjoy the local distributor who cares to answer my eventual questions about their products.

It is particularly important to use a high quality by-pass filter (B50) as it is much finer and does most of the filtering. Main filter just pics up big particles that the pump eventually suck in.
