It seems like some aftermarketers arent using subarus 23psi bypass spec. But the first baldwin one is close and is longer.

Anyone tried the b 161s or have any other input?

These filters could be a better option than the b-161s. I know the length of the b1431 will fit, and it probably doesnt have the concaved threaded end that the b161s has. 14psi bypass isnt that far off.
