Which oil filter are you running?

I just ordered a few K&N oil filters for our 660's and was wondering what everyone else is running. I usually run OEM but K&N is about $7 cheaper...Now I know thats not much if it saves my engine but if they are as good or better than OEM why not spend the extra money on gas

What do you guys think?

I've been running K&N, but I just ordered four of the Neutron Safe Guard filters from RMATV to try, they got excellent reviews, as good as K&N and OEM both, and the price was much, much better. $3.99 a filter. They are closeouts, so if anyone is interested, I'd jump on them while they still got them, lol.

I always ran the STP filter on my 660s and they worked good. I did it mainly because there cheap and easy to get at autozone. The blue matches nice to
