There have been numerous reports of filter media failures in Purolator filters. Classics, PureONEs and other branded filters made by Purolator so I would use them with caution.

http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums...es#Post3360799

I don't know if the list is is being updated/current, but the media failure reports are still coming in.

I've had a Bosch Premium fail recently:

I haven't yet swapped the Bosch D+ that's mentioned in the above link. I swapped a low service Bosch D+ out of my van so I'm not to concerned.....yet:

There has also been a few reports of MC filter failures as well.

Some people are cutting the filter in a way to cause tears intentionally and advertise against Purolator. Some are paid directly by the can of death company. Bobistheoilguy website is the conduit of this dirty game.

What do you mean? Somebody faking it and taking a picture of faking. I do not carry the burden of proof, the claimants do. But all I have seen is tears closer to where the cans are cut from. Favorites change from time to time and it is not Purolator season in bobisthe website. As far as I can see those photos come mainly from new members with few posts.

Here is a 'new member' with 3 posts on a mission:

The advantage of running a larger capacity filter of any sort, is the extra area with in to hold more debris, its just that simple. As far as any filter brand having some sort of problem, most always it can be traced back to what country is manufacturing it. Any country that can't make pet food that won't harm your pet, most likely can not do anything else right either. Its too bad all our bandages are made there too, kinda scary isn't it?

a clean air filter and a regular oci and the stock filter will do more than suffice..its not like the filter is going to become clogged. people around here have well over 300,000 all while using the recommended filter.

OCI= Oil change interval, how long you have driven before changing the oil

If an oil filter will never become clogged then there is no reason to ever change it then.
And why don't the large truck and heavy equipment engine manufactures just use a Lexus recommended oil filter in place of the large size and multiple units they usually install on such installations.
Reason is because large size and using more than one unit means more filter area. The whole reason for a filter is to catch debris.
The stock filter for a 1990 LS400 is the same one used on a 3 cylinder Geo metro, "will do more than suffice", maybe with low mile oil changes, but with folks increasing OCI that means more of a chance of that little filter loading up.

one reason is because ur talking 5,10,15 gallons of oil in comparison to a 6 quart sump. a 41348 wix filter can go as long as 10,000 miles,same as a 41516 which both consist of synthetic glass media. the 41348 has a lower micron rating than the larger filter..so in essence ur actually shooting urself in the foot
u can put a larger filter but u wont gain any more filtration to speak of
I work at napa and this is my job to know my products...anyways..ur car do as u see fit.
