AMSOIL is carrying WIX racing filters in addition
to filters for more common automotive and light truck applications.
WIX has been a part of racing and NASCAR for many years, both as a
sponsor and in the race cars. The company's long-standing
relationship with NASCAR not only demonstrates that WIX filters are
high-quality products, but it also shows WIX's dedication to racing,
making it a perfect match for AMSOIL.
Richard Petty began using WIX filters in 1967, winning six NASCAR
championships with the help of WIX filtration technology.
Currently, WIX filters are used on more than 20 Sprint Cup cars,
including those of two-time champion Tony Stewart and 2007 Raybestos
Rookie of the Year Juan Pablo Montoya. WIX is also an
associate sponsor of Joe Gibbs Racing and maintains a partnership
with Toyota Racing Development (TRD).

well-known around the world for its innovative filtration products
for the automotive and light truck market. Founded in 1939, the
Gastonia, N.C., company earned acclaim during World War II when it
created an oil filter out of a paper tube, wooden plugs and yarn
when steel was in short supply. In 1954 WIX created the
revolutionary spin-on oil filter that was eventually adopted as
original equipment on most vehicles.

filters have a full metal base plate for superior strength at the
double seal. They also feature a silicone anti-drainback valve that
stays flexible in extreme temperatures. This improves oil flow and
keeps oil in the filter to prevent dry starts.
filters use an up-front by-pass valve. This design is superior to
top-mounted valves because it helps to keep oil from washing past
dirty media and entering the engine. The glass-enhanced media in WIX
oil filters offers greater efficiency, capturing more 10 to 12
micron sized particles than other cellulose/synthetic blend medias.
They also have a coil steel spring to ensure internal filter parts
are sealed properly.
element air filters have a linear path through the filter for low
airflow restriction, a specially formulated adhesive to form WIX's
exclusive pocket pleat for the filter media and a soft sealing
urethane gasket molded in place on the filter element.
filters are constructed of mesh screen on the inside wall diameter
for element strength and media protection from backfire. Each round
filter is manufactured with heat-resistant plastisol with specially
designed crush seals on the top and bottom walls and adhesive seal
joining the media ends. Additional Filtration Products AMSOIL offers
WIX filtration products for auto/light truck and racing
applications. This includes not only standard air and oil filters,
but fuel, transmission, cabin air and filters specially designed for
racing as well.
