99.9% Filtration Efficiency. Royal Purple Extended Life Oil Filters use a 100% synthetic micro-glass screen-backed media for superior particle removal with a 99.9% filtration efficiency at 25 microns all while not sacrificing flow.

Anti-drain Back Valve. Royal Purple filters feature a unique silicone anti-drain back valve that prevents dry starts by eliminating oil drain back during shutdown. Silicone outlasts and outperforms standard nitrile rubber in both extreme hot and cold oil.

Superior Construction. Royal Purple Filter housings have a much thicker shell wall for additional strength to provide security against a puncture from road debris. Along with a heavy duty rubber base gasket and steel back-plate to ensure against leaks, this oil filter endures a much higher burst strength than standard conventional filters.

Application. This Royal Purple Extended Life Oil Filter is specially designed for use on the 2011-2014 GT, V6 and BOSS 302 Mustangs and the 2015-2017 GT and V6 Mustangs.

There is RP and there is the rest.

I have been using this filter (20-500) with my 2014 V6 3.7L Mustang. Looks and feels like a solid product. I have researched this filter and it appears to be the best. I am not aware of a better filter ...

I am not aware of a better filter but I digress. Just holding it you can tell it's a good quality product. I also run REDLINE oil and I think the two work great together. I would recommend this product and it's the only filter I use under my hood!

    Great long lasting filter

    If you're going to get synthetic oil have to make sure the oil filter is up to par and not let the oil filter be the weak link of the chain. Plus it a nice bonus to have this delivered to my front door with no added tax.

    Royal Purple Combo

    After buying my vehicle pre-owned I decided to do the first oil change myself and wanted to go with something with a good reputation. Ordered the RP oil and RP filter. After conducting the oil change, all seems to be working well and no complaints. Does what it says it will do.

    Great filter!

    Grabbed this filter for my 2016 mustang gt to go along with Royal Purple 5w20 oil. Car idles smoother and cylinder head temps dropped between 5-10 degrees at highway speeds. Can't go wrong with RP!

    Good match with their oil

    I've used Royal Purple's oil and have been very happy with it. I've switched from a KandN oil filter to this one. So far I've liked this best since pairing with their oil, will be buying more from now on. Since writing I've only had driven under 1000 miles, so far so good!

    Great filter replacement

    Installed this filter today with Royal Purple 5W20 oil and noticed a decrease in engine noise right off the bat. Filter was easy to grip and install. Definitely worth every penny.

    I use AMSOIL lubricants, RP Filters.

    I love AMSOIL, its good stuff, The only oil filter I use is Royal Purple, it just works better than the AMSOIL EA011 oil filter in comparison. Give it a try when you do your next oil change, you will be glad you did.

    Royal Purple Filter

    For my second oil change in my 2012 GT I went with Royal Purple and Royal purple Filter. I was told by a few to use a different filter but if royal Purple makes such a good oil I don't think they would skimp on the filter. I am completely satisfied with my descion and will do the same for the next oil change. I did notice better response after changing to Royal Purple. Its a great product and I intend to use it again.

    Cleaner oil at change

    I switched to rp oil and filter a few months ago. I definitly notice the oil isnt as dark as it was before and had a much smoother texture after 3000 miles. Ive used rp oil before but never the filters. Buying again.

    Filters do make a difference

    I've noticed that my oil (typically 7K change intervals) looks noticeably cleaner when i drain it out of the oil pan. You really can't beat a premium oil filter.

    Great for the new 5.0

    Just swapped the factory filter with this along with Royal Purple 5-30 and I can see and feel smoother motor components running. Oil temp gauge runs cooler and oil life has been substantially extended. If you have a mustang you must have Royal Purple.
