Tempest AA48103-2 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!

I originally ordered oil and a filter and the order had to be split based on inventory. Unfortunately during the Christmas chaos the filter package got lost. I called customer service and they quickly helped me by shipping out another filter. Many thanks to all who turned my minor stress event into a no brainer.
Good filter, and now you dont even need to put compound on the gasket.
Been using them for a long time. Seem to perform well.
Yes, the -2 is simply a Tempest designation. This is designed to be used in the exact same applications as the Champion CH48103-1 or any 48103 filter.
