The Best High Flow Oil Filters For Premium Performance Cars

A high performance car

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of getting behind the wheel of a sporty vehicle that can genuinely perform and allowing the car to become an extension of yourself. If you’re like other truly discerning gear heads out there, you want a machine that looks fantastic and feels flawless. Most importantly, it must be fun to drive!

From the shiny optimized power of a 2022 BMW M3 Competition xDrive to the classic, unbridled spirit of a 1972 Chevy Chevelle SS, there’s nothing quite like becoming one with a powerful vehicle. Every performance motoring enthusiast knows that regular service (especially the all-important oil change and oil filter replacement) for your premium machine is crucial, and only the best auto parts will do. 

These demanding engines require premium filtration to perform in extreme conditions without long-term damage. Depending on the vehicle, hundreds of gallons of oil circulate through the motor every minute. To minimize friction on moving parts, and prevent undue wearing of the internal components, the filter media must keep out any potentially harmful contaminants while allowing enough oil through. NAPA Auto Parts carries a wide selection of high flow vehicle oil filters for your premium performance car. 

Built For Performance

Just like your premium performance engine, the optimal oil filter must also be engineered to uncompromising specifications. Because the interior components of high-end vehicles feature tighter seals and precision-tuned components, they are more susceptible to the kind of catastrophic damage that can occur if contaminants in the oil are allowed to circulate through the engine, or if the engine becomes starved of lubrication. Spending more on a premium filter now can save you thousands of dollars in the long run!

K&N has been at the forefront of industry-leading filtration technology for nearly five decades. Their filters use pleated synthetic-blend filtration media (composed of innovative synthetic material) designed to deliver outstanding flow rates. This steady flow of oil to your engine is guaranteed to have the majority of dangerous pollutants removed.

Mann+Hummel is a globally recognized name in high performance filtration across 70 years in the market. Their filters remove contaminants and residue, and work with the best high performance oils. Their extensive product line is crafted to perform with a wide range of older and newer engines, and each Mann+Hummel filter delivers superior reliability, longevity and protection. 

NAPA Platinum Oil Filters are the ultimate line of defense your performance engine has against oil contaminants. Celebrated as one of the best oil filters in the aftermarket today, NAPA Platinum filters are engineered with advanced synthetic oil filtration requirements. Their ultra-premium design features innovative wire-backed synthetic media, an upgraded and reinforced can, and silicone anti-drain back valve for certain applications.

While changing the oil in a car is normally one of the first maintenance skills many drivers learn, it can be a whole different ballgame when it comes to DIY oil changes and oil filter replacement jobs on premium performance vehicles. As we’ve seen, performance engines can be far more complex than a daily commuter car, and therefore any miscalculations are far more costly. 

Checking service intervals is especially crucial in performance vehicles. If an oil filter is used for too long, it will reach its debris collection capacity, which means it can no longer screen out contaminants from your engine oil. Then, the oil pressure builds up, and the filter bypass valve is opened, which allows unfiltered oil to circulate through your system. 

Now that you’ve discovered the kind of damage particulates in engine oil can do to a performance machine, make sure to stay on top of your oil change schedule. Before you begin, consult your owner’s manual for all the service interval dates and correct oil weights to use. Consider adding these items to your cart if you are doing a DIY oil change and filter replacement:
