Oil Filters

If you've got a couple hours to kill, dive into the wacky world of online oil filter reviews, Corvette and otherwise. Sites like bobistheoilguy.com have entire forums devoted to budding (and professional) engineers who disassemble and inspect all the oil filter brands on the market. The results? If you've read through the forums (we have), you'll find there's more disagreement at the end of a given thread than there is at the beginning.

Fortunately, we keep things simple for the Corvette owner here at Vette Lab. Our Corvette oil filter recommendations focus on two well-known brands: AC-Delco and Wix. Both have a track record of premium-quality filtration over the course of decades. Our Wix Corvette oil filter is perfect for the average driver without a dry-sump engine. Cars with a dry sump (C7 Z51, Grand Sport and Z06, for example) run higher pressures through the filtration circuit and need the premium Delco filter we offer. Corvettes without the dry sump can run the AC-Delco oil filter too, but they don't require its extra burst strength.

We'll continue to read the oil filter forums so you don't have to, and when we find a credible advance in Corvette oil filters Vette Lab will be the first to stock it. Until then, choose one of our Wix or AC-Delco oil filters and rest assured you've got the right product for your Corvette.
