    Yes, I and now my Autozone buddy are aware of this. K&N's HP-1004 and HP-1008 are similar, but the 1004 is actually a bit taller. Both of these filters will work, but the 1004's additional height, it gets too close to hot engine parts, potentially causing a failure.

    Thinking of the location how much different is the height? I don't see how height is getting it closer to the header pipe that comes across the front? I'll have to look into this. Unfortunately I have to special ordr K&Ns noone keeps them on the shelf around here so I can't go put them side by side.

    K&N heights

    tarbaj -
    I didn't have my tape measure with me at the time, but I would say that the K&N HP-1004 is about 3/4" taller than the HP-1008 (they are the same diameter). Is this additional 3/4" gap between the filter and the downpipe important? I dunno, but when I've been warned that it may be too close, I'll go with K&N's suggestion to use the HP-1008.

    And to robertin who asks why go with any oil filter that isn't OEM? For the same reason that other rexers go with Cobb forced-induction upgrades, or Eibach suspension upgrades, or Denso plugs, or Ingen air systems, or any other after-market part producer - additional power/performance beyond the standard offerings of the stock car.

    Of course, I followed the philosophy of OEM-only parts (at least on the powertrain ) while my WRX was under 36K miles; so as not to void the warranty. But now, I want the additional quality and performance of after-market producers that focus their technological efforts improving on specfic parts; like K&N with filters.

    i just changed my oil at the dealership i work at yesterday. the guy there gave me a NAPA oil filter wich he said would fit. it fit but it was a little longer than the oem one that was on there. any thoughts on this? the oem lookin one was short and black with white lettering in english and japanese.

    I would recommend going with the OEM oil filter, but if you don't mind spending a little more $, kick down for a K&N HP-1008 or a Pulolator PL14612. I don't really notice a difference in day-to-day driving with these filters, but when the oil gets changed you can see where that extra $ went: relatively clean, non-gunky oil; which means you're treating your engine well. Plus I happen to be a big advocate of "you get what you pay for".

    Just as a rule of thumb, take advice from others with a grain of salt when it comes to YOUR car. Who am I? I'm just some nobody on the internet. Don't take my advice, rather take the information I spew(or anyone else's for that matter), and bring it to someone you trust with your rex.

    Never heard of anyone "feeling a difference" b/c of an oil filter.

    just do some research, and look at oil analysis results. they speak for themselves.

    I personally trust Wix. Purolator is good too (which is also Subaru OE)
