Received the K&P filter yesterday and I'm impressed. Looking forward to the next oil change to install it.

My post purchase review.

You can order new quad o-rings for the Challenger/K&P filter from Mcmaster Carr for less than 50 cents apiece. The part number is 90025K391. I change the o-ring every time I change the oil.

Awhile ago, about the start of this thread, I ordered a couple of Tempest 48110-2 filters. Those were delivered about a week ago. I must have forgot and ordered some more because I just received three more yesterday.

MY K&P arrived this week, very impressive looking assembly. Looking forward to the next oil change to get it on and then the following one to see ease of cleaning and inspecting the filter contents.

Glad I came across this thread, this may have been the best $200 I've spent, and should return the investment in 12 to 14 months if I keep up the flying like I have over the past couple years.

In response to Bill Peytons post, I'm with you. Decided I'll be changing the o-ring with every change.

One thing I noticed with the K&P filter is the o-ring sticks above the surface only about .030 of an inch. The filter is supposed to be torqued IIRC TO 15 ft lbs. Almost seems that would more than compress the o-ring until the oil filter housing contacts the mounting face on the engine. I called K&P and their response is they have thousands of these filters out there and no ones had this issue. I'm sure they're right. Maybe I'm so use to seeing what appears to be a lot of o-ring standing proud of the surface of the tempest like I'm use to.

Still VERY impressed with this filter. Even if disposable filters become readably available again, just to save the money I'll be using the K&P.

For those of you getting the K&P, just curious how long your delivery took? I ordered a few weeks and haven't heard a peep - just trying to calibrate my delivery expectations.

What I like the most about the K&P filter is that I no longer have to cut open the filter can and cut out the paper element to inspect the filter. Just a bit of diesel fuel or some brake cleaner to see what's trapped in the element. I bought two of the filter elements so that I can take my time inspecting and cleaning the "dirty" one.

(ctennis)..... I ordered my filter and it took them a couple days to ship. They actually called with the tracking number. Said they were having email troubles. it came from Denver, CO I think and it was about 6 days to receive it here in south Alabama. So order to delivery was 8 days. Came via UPS. You ordered a few weeks, I'd for sure give them a call.
