Tempest AA48110-2 Spin-EZ Oil Filter.
What’s Tempest’s recommendation for dealing with stuck oil filters? At your next filter change - UPGRADE to Tempest’s patent-pending “non-sticking” SPIN EZ™ aircraft engine oil filters.
Tempest’s SPIN EZ filters are designed to come off easy. Heat, time and pressure can extrude oil, grease, DC4® compound or similar liquid lubricants from between a filter’s rubber seal and the filter mount pad - leaving the filter seemingly “bonded” to the engine’s mount pad - and making it nearly impossible to remove. Tempest’s proprietary SPIN EZ adhered solid seal lubricant stays where it’s supposed to - between the seal and the mount pad’s surface. SPIN EZ solid lubricant won’t 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!

Order was complete and shipping was fast. Great prices and service all the way around.
Bought 2 of these 48110-2 for my O-320 based on an ACS answer to a customer question that it was the same as a Champion 48110-1 filter. I had always previously used the Champions but decided to save a couple of bucks. Bad move. The Champion rim is slightly smaller than the canister diameter and fits well while the Tempest is slightly larger. Large enough that it hits the line to the oil cooler directly under the filter. I have a straight filter adapter and the Tempest does not fit. Only if you have an angled adapter, does the Tempest fit.
Excellent, high quality filter that is carefully & deliberately packaged to avoid contamination. Take note that the installation instructions clearly state that the gasket should be clean, dry, and free of oil when spun on!
Great product, exceptional service
Great filter at a fair price.
Our club has always been satisfied with the Tempest filters they certainly fill the task at hand.
I installed this filter per instructions, with no lubricant on the rubber gasket and torqued to 16-18 ft. lbs. 50 hours later, Im unable to unscrew it. Ive worked for two days using every tool in my arsenal and its still stuck fast. If I ever use these again, I WILL be lubricating the rubber gasket with DC-4 and only tightening to contact plus 3/4 turn. I am not happy.
Very good thank you.
Really good deal for a six pack, especially now that I have the right part ðŸ¤ª
The Champion CH48110-1 and Tempest AA48110-2 are the same fit and function, and interchangeable. The AA48108-2 has female threads, and the AA48110-2 has male threads.
Yes, these filters have the same form factor.
