Thumbs up

I just installed a WIX 51348 oil filter on my t660st, and changed oil. I did it because after driving a long way to the dealer, I found out (during oil change) he sold me the wrong $18.00 suzuki filter DOHH!! #$#%#%^&%&* After a few choice words, I crossed to the wix # from the suzuki# at the nearby auto parts store, with no guesswork. QUESTION IS... has anyone had any problems with non cat-suzuki oil filters?? By the way, the orig. one had an o-ring type gasket, the wix and others have flat gaskets, don't know if that matters.

I've been using the Fram brand on my non-turbo T660 with no problems. Keep in mind the motor you have in your sled is a car engine. Thus for every AC branded part, there is a Suzuki lable underneath it.

Just remember, once you're over the hill, you begin to pick up speed.

Devil's advocate. Hell conscientious and informed and downright argumentative dissenter.

I used the WIX in my T660 and in my Z1 Jaguars with no problems. No worry with the "O" rings.

The non turbo 2007 Z1 Jaguar is WIX#51359 and runs about 7.00US
