    Are these the correct oil filters? They are only $5.97 each. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001KR1BQE/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Ed PS I hope they are as I splurged & bought two. I have a $600K car that uses a $6 filter! I love it! Update: wrong part! ?

    More guys need to choose the ECP option. The Rally will be a GTbow. Well, that doesn't really make sense. A GT Rainbow? Ed

    What have you learned about your NGT today??
