Jason doesn't reccomend anything.
Filtration is something that seems to be very personal to each individual and no one can tell you the best way to do it, i can tel you how i would do it and then let you decide on your own from there. I filter to 5 microns. IF you only filter to 10, your going to be changing your on bourd filter more often...is that a bad thing? Thats up to you. I personally am comfortable getting around 8k miles per filter. I could step up filtration methods a tad and got more miles but hey, i pay 11 bucks for a dolaldson filter and i would be happy if i only got 5k miles out of them. so personally, yes i would filter better than 10 microns but not like some guys using 10 passes through a centrifuge filtering to .5 microns and trying to make the oil like new again...waste of time.

You can get a bag filter and filter it down to submicron if need be. I am using 5 micron bags and then a centrifuge.

If it is anything to judge by the stock filters are 10 micron IIRC.
