    They Love the K@N Gold - 10 Micron Rating

    And of course the WIX Racing and Regular WIX

    Top Three

    Microns - Purpose

    I'll need to consider the K&N Gold, 10 micron sounds good. Not sure how much better the 10 micron is than the 50 micron of the Wix 51515R at protecting the bearings etc.

    I use the 51515XP, the standard 51515 is cellulose media, and the XP is full synthetic.
    There is a small tradeoff in microns, (35 microns for the XP I think?)
    With a high volume oil pump, the synthetic element and thicker housing may help, I dunno.
    Has anyone ever had a standard Wix filter problem?

    I had a permanent cleanable oil filter with a magnet in the end, it was a pain to get really clean.
    I do run a couple magnets on the filter, when it gets cut open, there are fine particles caught there.

        Never, at least with my stuff. Of course, I actually change oil when I'm supposed to on the
        other vehicles - and the GTX gets it each spring regardless of miles (which are considerably
        less than 3000 from the year before).
