Default Oil fiter specifications

Where can I find an oil filter specification and feature comparison source,
where I can identify an RSX-S filter replacement that is an appropriate
substitute and perhaps better that the original.


Thanks,

Dave M.

Default Re: Oil fiter specifications

The best oil filters are ones that have bypass valve pressure relief with
correct setting. Getting aftermarket oil filters that filter more or have
more surface area is not necessarily better if the bypass valve pops early
and lets the oil bypass the filter. That said, the best are OEM especially
if you have a high performance engine. Oversized aftermarket filters that
fit a host of other models usually have bypass settings set to the lowest
common denominator. This is soemthing that even oil freaks overlook.
Otherwise get an aftermarket filter and check specs on bypass setting and
compare to the OEM
