    OK, he was confused! Your filter will have the gasket attached. The filter, the drain washer and the oil are all the parts you'll need for oil changes.

    I know what you mean about the washers. I just ordered 10 today!

    I won't touch the everyday change thing - I had a CR250 and changed the tranny/bottom-end oil maybe 4 times in 4 years!

    I bought 12 washers the first time I went to do my oil change. Now when I do an oil change I don't worry about forgetting to get them as they are sitting in my glove compartment. If you consider the cost of gas and the distance the dealers are away from me then it is a good idea to stock up on parts.

    It seems that the URL listed is not working. You can find that filter study at this location. Or http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfilterstudy.html here.

    Here's another part # to add to the list...

    Donaldson Part# P550162

    This is the brand my local parts store carries, he says they aren't so well known in auto applications, but are huge in industrial applications. He says they're better than Wix, which has always been my filter of choice.

    Subaru changed the to a smaller filter on all the turbo engines (OEM and replacement). IIRC, something about they were worried the oil being heated up because the filter is so close to the exhaust manifold.

    The new, smaller OEM oil filter P/N ends with 080. The old ones ended with 060.

    Anyways, you will be fine using the old style bigger filter.

    Yes. these damn filters on the 04 models look so small, they can't filter out too much particles before they become clogged. Nah, don't even know if 02-03 have the same filter size. never checked. But word of warning. Bought Napa Gold filter at 8 bucks a pop and the damn seal preventing flow-by on the inside, you know the one that presses up against the threaded part, just deformed under the heat. When I removed it, seal wasn't even pressing up against the pipe. Just shows that expensive stuff isn't always the best.

    The guy at autozone said there wasn't a mobil one filter listed for the 2004 WRX, just some Fram POS. But when he looked up the mobil one filter for my EVO he noticed that it has the same Fram part number as the 04 WRX. If that is true, seems like the mobil one filter for the EVO would work on the 04 WRX. Has anyone checked this out?

    Thanks,

    Keith

    PS: EVO Mobil one filter is M1-108
    Miss the wifes WRX, but love my Ralliart!

    A Mobil 1 filter for a Honda will work, it's M1-104. Note that the top plate of Honda filters are concave and Subaru filters are convex. You will only be able to get a few turns with a Honda filter before it's seated. However, I used a Honda filter when I did my first oil change and didn't have any problems.


    Weird that the Fram EVO and WRX are the same part number. If you look at the STP filters, WRX = S2869 and EVO = S6607.

    Did I mention that my GF's car is a 2004? From what I understand Subaru changed filters for the WRX to go to a smaller filter.

    I just changed out my GF's oil, and I was actually thinking of the STP filters. For the WRX's with a build date of May 2003 and after the STP filter part number is S6607 just like for the EVO. I cross referenced that with the Mobil one part number for the EVO MI-108 and used that mobil one filter on my GF's WRX. It is VERY convenient using the same filter on both of our cars

    i was wondering if anyone tried the Purolator p/n L14612 on their WRX. This is the part for the'04 STi and i'm wondering if this the smaller filter to replace the 080 suby filter with.
