There are a couple of these kinds of filters out there. What bugs me is that they don't publish exactly down to what micron they will filter to. I don't recall what micron the OEM will filter down to.

They are built to ASTM F316 standard which is 15 micron maximum pore size.

I too am still looking for the factory filtration size.

($189 =1 filter + tax, shipping, etc)= (OEM @ $20 x 10 filters)

7500 mile oil changes with a new OEM filter x 10 = 75000 miles

WOW..............I'll keep my local dealer happy I'll stick with OEM. Besides the first time you buy a new set of injectors you will chuck that blingy oil filter.

Scotts makes reuseable filters for MX bikes. I know several people who run them and swear by them. The filters for my bike are stupid cheap so I don't mess with it, but I also get my parts at wholesale so the effort involved to clean a filter isn't worth it. However on the truck it may be worth the time depending on what the cost of each unit is.

If you do decide to use that filter, before you install it, compare measurement (LxODxIDxID length). Measure it with and without the factory cap. Be sure it's exact! Even the locking tabs on top.
