Maybe filter will catch it, maybe it won't. When bypass is open, nothing is filtered, so magnetic plug doesn't hurt anything, does it ?

Nonferrous metal is not magnetic. If your getting magnetic particals its too late. If your that worried send off your oil samples.

There is no "best" magnetic drain plug. Hell it's a drain plug that has a magnet on it, hard to mess up.

If you're worried about particulates in your oil, you have an issue in the motor or are doing something wrong. If you are so deeply worried about it, get a dry sump system.

If you want a nice, easy way of changing oil, Fumoto engine valve.

A filter WILL catch it, that's the entire job of the filter and if you are worrying about filtration, then you'd be buying an oil bypass unit which is the best oil filtration device in the history of the world for cars. Yeah...they cost $300. So are you concerned about filtration or aren't you? If you are I'll post the link where you can buy one, if you aren't then quit trying to half ass the apparent problem.

I've never heard of an oil bypass unit if you got a link handy I'll take a look at it personally. Save me from searching lol

During engine break-in, when your engine is actually making bits of ferrous ring material and bore material from the rings and bore wearing you can expect to see some accumulation on a mag drain plug. Its supposed to catch it so the filter doesn't have to. After break-in the iron content of the oil samples goes down as well as the production of ferrous byproducts. It really won't be doing much on a car with significant miles on it.

Because more people aren't as brilliant as I am. To my knowledge there has been only one installed in a Subaru and it was a Forester guy....search around in the service and maintenance forum and maybe you can find him and see pics or install advice as its a wholly custom thing.
