Question: I notice on Rock Auto, there are two different oil filters listed: A Wix filter and a Pronto oil filter. The Pronto is part number PO5839. It's half the cost of the Wix at 3.04.
Purolator's PureONE filters are popular because they provide great filtering performance at an affordable price. The filter element is packed densely to provide maximum filtration, though oil restriction issues can surface in some applications.
Anyone have any information related to similar testing of Professional Products Powerfilter? This unit is presented as a high flow washable S/S filter element in an O-ring sealed housing with a magnetic drain plug. There is no bypass (because of high flow) so all oil is filtered. I am fanatical about my automotive toys and am curious how this really stacks up. I can see it for race engines but not sure on day to day commuters. Only information I can find is from Professional products and I would like some info from a non-biased source. Anyone?The idea is sound and eco-friendly but I would like to know how well they did before I trust one of my engines to one.
