The Tempest AA48108-2 airplane oil filters are specially designed to keep your oil clean and extend engine life. These filters include high-quality features, such as a magnetic filtration system and improved nut welds. The unique magnetic filtration system describes the AA48108's internal magnet that attracts fine steel particles. These small pieces are often missed and allowed to enter the engine, causing unnecessary damage. The AA48108 will catch these tiny particles to protect your aircraft. Forget the days when oil filter installation was a hassle.
The improved nut welds on this Tempest product means easy fitting and zero frustration; installation nuts will never fall off of your Tempest AA48108! Its non-stick gaskets make oil filter inspection and maintenance a breeze. Enjoy the Tempest airplane oil filter to improve your aircraft?s oil quality during every flight, reducing harmful debris build-up in your engine. Tempest oil filters are affordable and easy-to-install, with incredible benefits that are second-to-none.
The new "Dash II" is 5/16" shorter than competitive filters, making it the shortest oil filter on the market.
NOTE: To keep our pricing as low as possible for our customers, the Tempest individual oil filters no longer come in their own box.

Magnetic Filtration System – The Tempest Original filter has more media area (311square inches) than any other aviation oil filter. An internal magnet, designed to attract fine steel particles to small to be caught by the filter media that can be harmful to the engine, effectively increases the filtration performance of the filter.
Improved Nut Welds – Nut welds are so strong that the can will distort without breaking the welds! During production testing nuts are actually ripped away from the can – the base metal must fail, the welds must not (see photo). Using Tempest Original filters means no more frustration with installation nuts falling off.
Meets TCM bypass Specification of 12-14psi, reducing risk of premature bypass that can result in unfiltered oil flowing to your engine.
Burst strength of 600 psi – Significant improvements to the roll seam process used on the bottom of the can substantially improved the design burst strength of the Tempest Original oil filter to over 600 pounds per square inch, exceeding the ARP 1400 standard by 50 percent. Extra strength gives added assurance that Tempest oil filters are made to withstand the harshest operating conditions.
Non-Stick Gaskets – Tempest Original oil filters incorporate especially lubricated synthetic rubber base gaskets made from a proprietary compound. This helps insure proper torque during installation and easy removal.
