Default 2.2T hybrid guys, using OEM oil filters, 060 or 080? ..

yes yes I read the oil filter sticky in service and maintnence.

Just want to know what you guys are using..

I had already drained my oil and taken off the filter before I noticed I got 080's instead of 060s...

I put the 080 on, yes its smaller and doesnt cover as much of the oil filter housing flange as the 060...

it works...its JDM, its gotta be good right?

there is an argument going in that sticky that the 2.2t should use the 080 as well, but SOA says 060...

My personal opinion is that its just smaller and its flow and filtering properties are probably the same if not better than the 060...

anyone else have an opinion?

Jay

Hmm.
I've been using just the Purolators from the local autoparts store. I believe the OEM ones are Purolators as well.

Jay, so far, no problems whatsoever.

the 060s are purolators, and were the oil filter for all late model subarus up untill 2002.

now they changed, all turbo cars 02 and up are to use the 080 a smaller filter, designed smaller suposdly for the reason of keeping it away from the exhaust so the filter doesnt heat up.

n/a cars are still to use the 060

the new filter 080 are made in Japan by Tokyo Roki (jdm yo!)

the 060 is made in the US by purolator.

Ill keep an eye on it, but if the real reason they are using the smaller filter is becaues of exhaust issues It wouldnt be a problem for me caues im still using a stock exhuast manifold, but those that might be using a borla header on a hybrid might take benifit to the smaller filter cause borlas get real close to the oil filter.

Ill keep digging for more clues and post as I find them

Good point on the Borla headers heat issue. I've always wondered that myself. I'm also running the stock exhaust manifold.

Are you running an oil cooler? This makes my filter sit lower and clear the heatzone.
