Fram did make filters with check valves, But I'm not sure if they still do.
I use the AMS  with their synthetic oil. Expensive but worth it.
We use Delvac at work , Another synthetic oil for our busses, we get
3,000,000 miles out of some of them and have many 20 year  old ones on the
road in daily service.
My dealer can be reached at his name is Corey, I like it a
lot and find my B runs cooler . Was out for a 100 mile spin in this 100
degree heat on the east coast , car ran with temp at normal. Carl E. PS,
this is just a personal favorite and I don't get anything out of it.
