    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.

    Thanks for this reply. I never did enough research on the filter and how important it is to my oil system. I feel pretty stupid for having used an oil filter that has likely been allowing some dirty oil to get through to my engine and wherever else. Thankfully, I am a religious and frequent oil changer. My oil health is pretty good I think. I check it almost 3 times a week.

    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.

    Not a fan of the "Blue" filters. They are made by Honeywell/Fram. The old "black" filters were made by Tokyo Roki then the Subaru "white" filters were made by Purolator.

    Also I would check this Subaru recall on some of the "blue" filters.

    So the filter that the subaru dealership put in it was a blue filter... Should I be worried?

    No. It meets factory specifications and they are aware of the recalls.

    Thanks for this information. I am awaiting the arrival of 6 of these filters. I can certainly see your argument against the blue filters as I have read. It seems most peeps go with the Purolator Pureone. Since I have already purchased these filters, gonna give them a go. They are likely a step up from Napa filters as they will have the correct pressure relief settings especially for cold starts.

    I will check the manufacture dates before installing.

    Yo Bizzdan!!! I love the choice. ENEOS product works for me.

    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?
