LS3 Oil Filter # and where to get cheap

Guys just wanted to make sure that the LS3 oil filter is an AC Delco PF48? If so, where can I get one cheap BESIDES the stealership ($13)? Thanks for the help.

if you have a NAPA store near you...get Napa Gold #7060...it's made by Wix, which is top notch...will run you around $5. The napa near me also carries AC Delco as well.

You can always order online from Napa...you'll save on sales tax, but have to pay shipping. Maybe buy a few (or anything else you may need) to offset the shipping cost a little.

See if your local autoparts store carries Wix filters...it's the same part # as the Napa Gold...#7060

Yes PF-48 is correct. For the last year and a half I have been ordering stuff like that from a company called RockAuto.com. They have the PF-48 for $5.21. I usually order extra for all my cars at once and pay shipping once!

If you want it really cheap just keep using the same one over and over...

Just kidding, don't skimp on the filter!

Absolutely right drtwo. Don't skimp on the filter. K&N or Mobil 1 filters are the best out there.

I sell the PF48 for $5.27.

I would certainly use the AC Delco UPF48R. This is the Ultra Guard filter with the higher oil burst rate, teflon coated seal and filters down further in microns. I sell those for $8.88 each.

You can either call or order online. If you're referring to me with a minimum shipping charge of $8.95.. it costs me more than that to send to half the places in the US.

You just dropped $39k on a Camaro and you are fretting about a $6 oil filter?

No thank you...

I will stick to a Wix, Mobil1 or last case, K&N.

You look at the price difference between a substandard $6 filter over a $12 premium filter over the life of said filter, you are looking at a six pack of Bud Light.

Sorry....This mentality rubs me raw. You spend your hard earned money on a nice car and skimp on an oil filter. Let me guess...You put 87 octane in and buy the non-standard SAE uncertified oil on sale for 99 cents a quart.

I compare this oil filter issue to what I see here in Detroit. Guy has a $60k Cadillac Escalade. Lives in a run down house with no running water. NO, I am NOT joking. Who the hell buys a $60k car and lives in a 10k house?

If you would like, I can take a picture of the Escalade and the house tomorrow.

Banshee who are you talking to. I was asking who sold the AC Delco filter that goes on the car. I have never said anything about filters being to expensive. Now shipping is another thing. Please read before you type.

Well, I agree that banshee might need to consider drinking decaf, but your original post does specify the word "cheap" twice!!! So yes, as crazy as it sounds, that might lead us to believe you are concerned about the price. Maybe you should re-read your own posts?!?!? FYI...just about any auto parts store will more than likely have an oil filter that will fit on your car, including the PF48. It's up to you what brand you want to use and the price you want to pay.

Why not actually compare specs on filters. Get an Amsoil filter. Lasts up to 25K with Amsoil lubes.
