  1. how do you like the eibach pro truck? been eyeing it for a while...but just havent saved up for it just yet...did it take a while to get settled/broken in?
  2. so this was completely and totally my point when I was skeptical of the K&N claim of 10-12 micros...which I seriously doubt that is what they are filtered at...can i get out of time out? can we be friends again?
  3. call a spade a spade and get put in timeout? ok then.................................
  4. my comment was specifically about K&N filters...and specifically about 10-12 micros claim...for whatever reason K&N filter specs are more difficult to find then the rest of the filters... and the K&N specs IS the point...READ ME?
  5. you literally add 0 value...dont care if you are a moderator or not...read the thread and know what you are talking about before you post BS like this.
  6. i literally went through this entire thread and you never mentioned ANYTHING about K&N oil filter...you want to reread your statement? there was only one person who brought K&N up and that is the same person who liked your comment and claimed they filter at 99% 10-12 microns without any proof...so you can tell your friend txab to go beat his own deadhorse... if there was a link that i missed...by all means, feel free to point me in that direction...
  7. pardon my skepticisms without proof...do you have a link or data to support your claim? that is a bold claim of which i have plenty support that is not a true statement...at best they are 25...but again...i am willing to concede if you have actual proof...
  8. yes...Boss is at 25 micros...while the ONE is at 20 micros...again...i have no idea what that means in real world scenarios, but i do know that 99% at 20 micros is better than 99% at 25 micros...sorry...had a lot of research i was sifting through in my mind (the video you pulled was one of the resources i came across)...
  9. ha! yeah, it does...i was confusing my sources...but i think the Boss is 99% at a higher micros...so let me go back to my research...the ONE is 99% at 20 micros...i think the boss is 99% at like 40 micros...(hold please)
  10. In the video you posted, it articulated that the Boss is more heavy duty and fully synthetic materials, but it is i think 98% or less...i cant recall...but the ONE is 99%...again...all about filtration, not overall performance...
  11. Yes, i will...i just changed my oil...so it will be awhile. but i will do that when time gets closer...
  12. i was very clear, but you might have missed it...NOT BOSS, Purolator ONE...the Boss actually doesnt filter as well as the ONE...even though it is their 'premium' filter...
  13. combination of many sites...but you actually answered your own question...as Purolator One has 99% at 20 micros...so as i said, purolator has more filtration...again, i did not focus on flow rate, only filtration....and to repeat...i am not claiming Amsoil (or any other premium filter) is a poor filter...is 1% filtration difference noticeable? who knows...
  14. when I install the Purolator, I will let you know if I have any drop in oil pressure...but like I said, Amsoil does NOT filter as well as the Purolator one...that doesn't mean it is a bad filter nor am I saying it is...I am just stating facts...based on my research...and I am saying the Amsoil does NOT filter as well as the Purolator...
  15. So I have done quite a bit of google research since I started this thread....and took the suggestions that each of you had input on and what I have found is that there are a good solid handful or more of quality filters that are good...but if true filtration is what you are after, the Purlator ONE (NOT THE BOSS, which is the higher end model...is does not filter as good) is the best filter for filtration... what i am not going to debate is failure rate and all the other potential things that come with filters (oil pressure drop, etc.) for filtration Purlator ONE is the 'best'...and yes someone mentioned this, i want to be clear i was an unbiased researcher... there are plenty quality filters that are still really good...some might sacrifice fitration for flow rate...or have a different focus - for example, a off road vehicle that gets the engine rebuilt every 10k miles doesnt need the best filtration, but does probably need good filtration but high flow is more important...i felt that K&N was in that category (although there are some claims that is just another filter with K&N logo on it)... anyway...my next filter i am going to buy is a Purlator ONE...thanks for all the discussion...and by all means, please tell me why i'm wrong!
