FYI, WIX filters usually have just as good, or better capacity and performance when compared against other brands. The length is not all that is to say for a filter. You can keep using the OEM UPF48...

As I've mentioned before, don't buy thicker sandwich adapters with sensor plugs or thermostat, and use filters that are usually more compact yet good quality (WIX). On my Miata, the oil filter does...

ST47/45 is a great combo for any of the caliper setups. They last very long, never fade, and also are easy on the rotors.

Thanks for the list! There a few issues we should mention, though:
(1) C & D does not use one driver for these tests, so the results will vary. C6 Z06/Z07, for instance, can obviously do better.

I'm not really sure, but the hard line that goes from the diff to the transmission might be emphasizing the noise as it touches the heat shield around the shaft.
