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.
