Wix has been THE best filter I've ever used. No reason to spend more.

Was a solution ever devised to eliminate the filter bypass we have on these cars? Sorry if I missed it. I saw for example that AMS had devised a solution for GTR such that there was no longer a filter bypass and a large capacity/high flow filter could be used.

The oil filter bypass is built into the filter. There are stainless steel mesh filters available that do not have a bypass. However, their filtration capability is not as good as elements in standard oil filters.

So then there is no "non-bypass" high flow filter suitable for high rev racing application 4G63?

I guess thats my ultimate question.

My guess is that the oil volume be moved at high rpm is too much for a fine filter to handle without creating a huge back pressure, even if the filter were huge. I think most people use the non-bypass filters only for the initial break-in to catch larger debris that may be circulating.

Any thoughts on the ECOGUARD SYNTHETIC+ filters? They claim they filter down to 5 microns.

Was a very interesting read.

For me My Engine builder will only use Fram filters and has recommended me away from using any other filter. ( I dont even buy them off him )
Your engine builder clearly has no idea what he's talking about.
