    Best Oil Filter ?

    Yea I know its one of those threads. Alright well my six pack of the blue filters is used up and I need to change my oil and wondering if I should keep using the blue filters or if there is something better with around the same bypass valve spring pressure.

    08+ RX-8 filter has the correct bypass valve, fits (slightly larger capacity) and is made by Tokyo Roki (same company that made the old Subaru blacks). Props to Power6, I believe, whose post made me aware of this.

    So the filter from the rx-8 will actually work on our cars? Nice. Now that I think about it I remember seeing something about mazda rx-8 filters working on our cars. I am worried about it being longer an being by the exhaust manifold though. Has anyone used them yet?

    That's what I've always been using but I'd like to switch to the RX-8s once I'm out. Hopefully Power will chime in on his use.
