For the $170 they want, I can change a lot of $25 throw aways and have piece of mind that the oil in my $15,000 engine is clean. I'm not comfortable with some of their statements:

Higher flow of oil - that usually means less filtering. The oil passages in your engine is only going to allow so much oil flow, and the Motorcraft oil filter is designed for that rate of flow.

Convienient inspection? You still have to remove the filter cover, so what's convienient about it.

Made of aluminum with a stainless steel filter media .... a few hundred years ago, in my previous life as a student, I remember reading something about 2 dissimilar metals in contact with each other .......

Oh oh, now the good one ... "cleaned in hot soapy water" - well, what if you don't get all the water removed? OK, use a parts washing tank - thats cleaning solvent .... it that good for the innards of your engine?

Interesting, but no thanx, I'll stick to my $25 throw away filters.

They do make it sound good. And it got an award (really?). Thanks for the info. I'm sticking with the $25 filters also.
PS - 2 dissimilar metals, especially with fluid flow passing through them, sets up galvanic corrosion of the less noble metal which is contacted.

I agree with larry, its like for there price i get a lot of changes purchasing Motocraft @ wall mart for 9.20 for my PSD,or 10.50 for a Baldwin at international. ( think those 2 folks know what kinda filter belongs on the engine), no matter im gonna dump the oil so price there is a moog point. I do oil analsys on mine,so i like the 5K changes, so i realy dont see any gain, my thoughts ne way ..... Bill PS Larry is entirely corect dismular metals + acids in the oil (electrolite) = dissimular metal crossion..... Washing: wen we did that on filters for jet engines (P&W PT-6) we were required to place in oven for 1/2 hr b4 reinstall btw these were 10 micron filters believe me hte metal ones are a plane hassle for many reasons........ Ill just use the motocraft or Baldwin

if your looking for a long lasting filter you need to check out the new powercore filter. Im trying to get some more information on it. From what I understand it is a 100K filter that is one of the only filters that meets OE requirements for filtration, but yet has a higher efficency of least amount of restriction. Check them out, from what I have been reading this is well worth the money, Im getting one as soon as I can.
