Canton/Mecca Oil Filter

Now that Frey's Racing is no longer around, there was no source for Canton oil filters and cartridges.

BH Motorsports in Hayward just signed up as a new dealer for Canton and should have inventory soon.

Canton's are, IMHO the best competition-grade oil filter that can be bought. And yes there is an application for a spin on cartridge for the EJ20.

wow, those are some serious bux.

Interesting though. I've never ran into a problem running normal high-quality filters on all my turbocharged cars on the track.

yes, but dont go with a spin on, use a remote oil filter, that way if u ever choose to go with an oil cooler its reallly simple to plumb in. Not to mention you get a lil extra oil capactiy, as well as being able to mount it anywhere you want to.



And its the same price or cheaper.

the nice thing (best) about the Canton is that it does NOT bypass when the oil is cold and thick. MOST oe filters do. The HP1 Fram (racing) filter does. I used to use the HP1 or the System 1 on all the drag motors I ran until I learned of this. The Canton won't bypass the filter media when the oil is cold, so your bearings see clean oil 100% of the time. You can also disassemble the cartridge and disassemble it to inspect for debris. We dynoed a 218hp VW engine many years ago, and during the dyno session, the camshaft failed (#3 exhaust lobe rounded off, very common with cast cams and the springs we were running, with about 400# over the nose), but the Canton saved the motor. No debris in the bearings at all. The filter was loaded with the "black death", but luckily the crank and bearings were like new.

Dre, which CM fuel filter did you get? And is the fuel filter worth it over OEM?

How far down does the 6.25 hang? Can you take a pic? I don't want to get something that sticks TOO far down...
