awesome
so you'll make your money back after about 50 oil changes, or 250,000 miles or so, and all you have to do is disassemble that thing and clean out oily mesh each time rather than just spin off a tin can filter and spin on a new one

No clue why anyone would want that
I mean it looks cool but you can't even see a filter

Eco-friendly?

But, it will take at least 40 filter replacements, at $6 each, just to recover the cost alone, never mind all the effort to clean the thing.

If you want to make your filter look special, just paint each new one in metallic green

Yeah don't use those. They are a huge pain in the ass and have h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e filtration. I see a product like this making much more sense on a dual filter fleet fleet vehicle getting services on much high frequency.

If you really cared about oil filtration, which you don't, you'd be installing a dual remote bypass system. In life you have two options:

1. Full retard.
2. Normal use.

You can't half ass this. You have to run a bypass system, perform used oil analysis with each change, remove the pan with each change, clean the 64 rare earth magnets in the pan and use Amsoil XL 5W-30.

I use Walmart oil and whatever filter is on sale and my car is fine.

Your call.

My only complaint would be the oil seals and what the micron rating of filter and the pressure relief is what pressure?

By the time you buy new seals for that filter you might as well just buy a new filter each time. The seals alone probably cost as much as a wix filter.
