Check these out, I found them very interesting. Yes they are pricey, but the replaceable element is said to be good for 10,000 miles of "street" driving and only costs less than $15.00. You do the math :) Be sure to check out the "Filter Tech" page for the 411

hm sounds almost convincing, but...when something sounds too good to be true it is, so i'm guessing a gimmick.

I think it may really be all that is says.. I mean it would be hard to sell an oil filter that cost close to $100.00 if doesnt really work as stated.. I am gonna have to do a lil reasearch on them.

How well does the filter flow? It doesn't give specs.

Is the drainback valve part of the unit or the filter cartridge. Rubber, nylon, cardboard?

Is the 'synthetic' of the filter chemically neutral? Since it is only water resistant, what would acid buildup in oil do to it?

Lack of a bypass valve is unnerving. Since the filter catches stuff in the element, it seems it would flow less and less.

I'm not saying it doesn't filter like they say, but there are other things to consider for the system as a whole.
