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!

Good quality product
Fast shipping and well packaged.
Less expensive than competitor, and the EZ spin off is EZier on the brackets associated with my aircrafts Airwolf Remote Oil filter installation.
I recently switched from Champion to Tempest. These are great filters and have an internal magnet to trap any metal. They are also less expensive.
Delivered quickly via USPS.
I like not having to use any gasket lubricant during installation of the oil filter!!!
Overly priced but necessary. Never had an issue with This type of filter.
I do most oil changes myself. Ive used Tempest oil filters for several years. The new seal is interesting, but Id buy Tempest anyway.
Solid filter, EZ to use!
Its just another overpriced oil filter. What is there to rate? Well, you asked me to rate it.
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.
