NAPA filters are made by Wix which are generally pretty good. The main problem is finding a filter with the correct by-pass valve pressure rating. I know both the regular Purolator and the Pure One have the correct setting.

Coincidentally, I am going to be changing oil next week again, ordered up more of the ENEOS 5w30 (I stand by the oil), but also added a 6 pack of the "blue" OEM Subaru oil filters. I suppose its not too late to give my car what it needs.
Thanks again for the post.
Also I would check this Subaru recall on some of the "blue" filters.

I will check the manufacture dates before installing.
I cant comment on AMSOIL as Ive never tried it in my WRX...but I did use AMSOIL in my Harley...and its great stuff. Also used AMSOIL in both Mustangs that I have owned.
However, I would love to know how this is working for ya. Have you checked levels...color...etc? Please post your findings. ENEOS is really good stuff and most people have never really even heard of it.
As for filters, I know now the RX-8 filter or a Purolator Pureone may be the best choice...but gotta give my blue OEM a go since I already bought them. How is it working for you?
I've been using AMSOil 5w30 (paired with an AMSOil oil and air filter) in my 2006 WRX Wagon for the past year (18,000 miles). Zero issues with it.
The oil currently has around 7000 miles on it, but I'll be changing it out at 12,000 miles.
I do check the oil level every 2 or 3 weeks, just to make sure it is not low.
The only problem I've had is that I forget when I last changed it... So, I have to keep a log online and remember to check it every so often.
