CM Oil Filter Elements

CM

REPLACEMENT PARTS

LPI Racing offers CM Fuel and Oil Filter Elements, Canister Screen Filters and Universal Seal Kits. Filters are 1, 8 or 180 Microns and 2 5/8" or 4-5/8" Tall. You can order Singles, 6 or 24 Packs. The Universal Seal Kits are for Canister, Inline, Spin-On or Billet Fuel and Oil Filters.

Synthetic fiber element - The CM filter uses a replaceable depth filtration element, made from woven synthetic fibers. You can compare it to a three dimensional"sponge" rather than the tow dimensional paper element that comes inmost of today's filters. This thick three dimensional element contains millions of intertwined passageways that catch contaminants and also provide superior flow characteristics so they don't require a bypass valve. This depth filtration extends filter element life because it can catch far more contaminates without restricting flow.

Screen element - Designed for racing and high performance applications, CM screen filters provide general filtration and the ability to easily monitor oil flow for contaminants. This is the best way to prevent minor problems from becoming major ones. CM fine elements (140 mes/180micron) are recommended for automotive engine applications where filtering all significant particles without restricting flow is needed.CM's coarse (50 mesh/250 micron) elements are recommended when heavier oil is used and the particles being monitored are larger, as in transmissions and differential.

Oil Filter Tips

CM Oil Filters have a longer life than standard oil filters. In a normal street application the oil filter can be changed every 10,000 miles. When using a synthetic oil, the oil should be changed every 5,000 miles while the filter element should be changed with every other oil change.

Checking your oil filter element is one of the best ways to monitor your engine. To inspect your CM oil filter, remove the filter element from the housing and take the end caps off the metal cages. Slide the element out and stand it up on paper towels to drain the oil. After draining, unroll the element for inspection. During the first few inspections after an engine rebuild, debris from break-in and particles left over from the machining will show up. The amount of these contaminates will decrease over time, any major increase will indicate a problem.
