Tempest AA48108-2 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!

Excellent quality and performance
We service a number of GA aircraft and the Tempest filter is the oil filter of choice.
Thanks for the great service
The oil filter application guide for Cirrus said it will fit SR20. Use 48109 for SR22. I ordered 48109 and it did not fit because of the AC line. If you have air condition, use 48108-2
Ive got foreflight cool airplanes that we are using these on. For 30 years I used to Champion but I thought Id try these because the cost was a little bit lower and I go through a lot of filters. So far everything is fine about them, the only reason Im not giving them 5 stars is that since the gasket has to be dry, I have to let the oil drain overnight in a couple of my airplanes because theres no way to get the filter on there fast enough that a little bit of oil isnt still dribbling by. Thats a little bit of a pain in the butt for me to have two drain oil night and then first thing in the morning finish an oil change! I sort of wish they did not have the fancy gasket, I never had problems in the past getting the champion filters off so this feature doesnt really impress me.
I fly a twin so I need two filters. My find is Tempest was much better before they starting using the no DC4 on the seal. To pull the filters can now be a challenge because they simply are much harder to remove and they were torqued to the proper value during the install.. Called Tempest today and they said, you can remove the additive on the seal by wiping the seal with a wet rag. My opinion, if it isnt broke dont fix it. Im going back to Champion.
We like the added features of the Tempest Filters !

In the application PDF listed in the Documents tab, I show the AA48108-2 is the correct model for Cessna 182 with the O-470 engine. AA48108-2 is FAA-PMA and is interchangeable with applications of Champion CH48108-1.
