Tempest AA48109 Spin-EZ Oil Filter.
Whatís Tempestís recommendation for dealing with stuck oil filters? At your next filter change - UPGRADE to Tempestís patent-pending ďnon-stickingĒ SPIN EZô aircraft engine oil filters.
Tempestís SPIN EZ filters are designed to come off easy. Heat, time and pressure can extrude oil, grease, DC4ģ compound or similar liquid lubricants from between a filterís rubber seal and the filter mount pad - leaving the filter seemingly ďbondedĒ to the engineís mount pad - and making it nearly impossible to remove. Tempestís proprietary SPIN EZ adhered solid seal lubricant stays where itís supposed to - between the seal and the mount padís surface. SPIN EZ solid lubricant wonít extrude or squirt out from under the seal. It prevents the bond forming environment that makes legacy filters stick.
Avoid frustration. Save time and money. No more messy DC-4 compound. No more stabbed cans. At your next filter change, UPGRADE to state-of-the-art Tempest SPIN EZ oil filters - the filter that comes off without a fight!

No complaints, never had a leak and I like the features like a magnet particle trap and pre-lubed seal.
Shipped quick and fair price
Arrived quickly, packaged well, product as expected
Very good product & mailed promptly.
Tempest filters offer superior quality while Champion skimps with Flimsy box for oil filters but charges a premium price 30% more. I always buy Tempest unless they do not make the filter
Good quality product
Fast shipping and well packaged.
They are both FAA approved filters, and are used in the same applications. The Champion unit measures approx. 5.73" tall, and 3.71" diameter, and the Tempest measures approx. 6-3/16" tall, and 3.75" diameter, and also has a magnet and new Spin-Ez seal.
