    Anyone else notice it looks like the Mobil1 and K&N internals are identical? Only real difference is the K&N has the nut on the end and Mobil1 doesn't.

    Yes I saw that. I heard somewhere that either one or the other filter is treated differently but can't substantiate that. The nut is very handy though...

    The whole site is great. The magnets section, the oil analysis section (why not to use a racing oil with a road car or a catted exhaust in any case), the filter section -- just great stuff.

    I use OEM or fram too. I never have seen a problem with a fram filter before. I change my oil every 1,500mi or less, when you don't pay for oil why the hell not

    BTW, 04.SPT.WRX great link

    P.S. I have never change the crush washer in about 18 oil changes. Yes it's true. Not one drop has leaked either. Proper torque does wonders!

    PureOne on everything I own. I started using the 14610 instead of the recommended 14612 because that's the same filter I use on my G35 Coupe..and it's jst a little bit larger but with same bypass pressure... Let's me use full 5 qts so I don't wind up with a 1/4 quart left over...

    Purolator PL14612 and a new crush washer... though after seeing that the PL14610 is the same filter but a little bigger i might go with that...

    Fram? Don't look at the innards of a Fram.

    Paperboard endcaps versus steel.
