I did remeber after I made the post that after our dyno tests, Fram/Honeywell did make a recall for this problem. They have probably fixed most of the issues they were having by now but I usually don't give second chances in circumstances like that.

This was a press release of that recall:

Honeywell is recalling FRAM Racing HP4 and HP8 oil Filters that were manufactured from May 25, 2006 through September 14, 2007. The affected filters are marked with a date code A61451 through A72571 sequentially. The date code and part number appear on the filter housing (in small black text above "Fram").

The gasket of the oil filter becomes more pliable under high temperatures and pressures. This condition may cause inadequate sealing and loss of engine oil.
