I just called two of our local parts stores and no one sells the high end filter. Can you tell me where you guys buy your filters. I have an oil change to perform this weekend. My second one. hahaha

I think that they were discontinued for a short period of time......as soon as I caught wind of it, I bought 8 from my local dealership. As soon as I 'stocked up', I also read on the forum that AC-Delco was going to continue to manufacture this 'Ultra Guard Gold' UPF-44 filter for C-5 owners. You might want to see if your local dealership has any in stock or can order some for you.

I have solicited several on-line and local vendors. This filter has been MD'd (Manufacturer Discontinued). I would really like to believe that Delco will reconsider or replace in their product line? It's their call... :-? :roll:

One of Forum Vendors, Bob Benedix (corvetteseller) had gotten several cases in and was looking to sell them, I bought an even dozen.

Not sure if he has any left, but it is worth checking with him...

we still have some left out of the 10 cases we were able to
get recently.

Call Jerry Gygi in my parts department, ID yourself as from
this forum.

NAPA has a gold filter for the vette that is probably just as good.

K&N would be another one to concider if you can't locate the Ultragaurd :)
