Changing the oil in my 89' and I was wondering what brand do you guys recommend? I have done a bit of research and supposably a K&n is a good choice, but upon visiting their site, I have found that they don't sell an oil filter for my car, only an air filter. So any guidance would be greatly appreciated

I use Purolator or Baldwin, but it is often more important that you change it often than what filter you actually use. I have found a couple of taller filters of the same thread and diameter that offer more filtration media, but couldn't tell you much about them anymore. I'm back to using standard ones out of convenience.
