Lifter tick is not just an annoying noise- lifter tick can trigger the knock sensor to detect knock which leads to loss of power. Replace the lifters with the revised ones and you should be fine.XtReMeToYz said:Is lifter tick something I should be worried about. I noticed tickingg earlier when i changed my oil. I dont wanna drive it for 2500 miles and fuck something up.
Some oil will reduce lifter tick. Not sure about filters- as far as I know I just get the 3000 GT one for easier installation.XtReMeToYz said:Wouldnt it be easier you just spend 15 bucks on another oil change, and throw a different filter on there that doesnt tick, like the 3kgt filter?
90TurboTSi said:In regards to the EVO filters... I was told by my local mitsu dealer that the new EVO 8 filters were a "replacement" for the 1G filters I was using. A friend working there got me a box of proably a dozen filters dirt cheap. I have yet to actually use any of these as I had a few 1G Big filters left.
The part number is MZ690116 Anyone know if and how they would work? I can say that I have had arguments with the people working at my local mitsu about parts and fitment of parts. Just figured I ask and contribute my 2cents here... I have run the 1G big filters for all of my (1) 1Gs life, my dads the origional owner 215k later and in all my other many 1Gs. More or less im just a fan of OEM parts especially when I can get discounts there

Wow that sucks. I work for a dealership and I hate it when customers come in with FRAM filters. We use NAPA Gold filters for any car other than the lines we sell and I haven't had any problems with those.dvbrien said:Just wanted to add my 2 cents here! DOn't Buy FRAM OIL filters!
