Re: Stainless steel Scott's oil filter.

They are $119 but are said to be reusable and you just soak or wash them out after an oil change. They seem pretty good but just want to get some first hand accounts of their quality.

Scott's Oil Filter

-Shrub

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Re: Stainless steel Scott's oil filter.

I've seen arguments both ways on it. Filters like this are very popular in racecars.

The thing I like most about is the ability to easily find trash in it.

Re: Stainless steel Scott's oil filter.

Someone mentioned getting one when we were using the old board. I can't recall who, though. They were supposed to post their results.

It would be nice to use albeit a bit pricey.

Re: Stainless steel Scott's oil filter.

~$125 shipped...

That's 125/8 = 15, 15 * 3000 = 45000 or 15 * 7500 = 112500.

So... just to break even you'd have to re-use that filter for ~15 oil changes (vs. a relatively expensive single-use filter), or anywhere between 45K and 112K miles... all this while washing it out, dealing with oil/solvents/airhose-drying, and wondering if the filter is still good.

Definitely not worth it IMO.

Re: Stainless steel Scott's oil filter.

I agree with 2OH. Most humans dont have the eyesight to distinguish particulate matter, just large pieces of FOD. The fine particles are what destroy the engine over longterm usage.

IMHO - stick to Amsoil or Purolator filters.

Re: Stainless steel Scott's oil filter.

I've had one on my 954 for quite some time now. I think since the second oil change. It works great. Just as advertised. I did post my results on the old board. And I also mentioned that some paper filters actually have better filtration. I for one like the idea of being able to inspect the contents with the relative ease it provides compared to cutting open sealed filters. I spray it out with a can of engine de greaser then dry it with the air compressor. So far the only time I found any substantial amount of debris was the first time I took it off and that was during break-in. Since there has only been a little sludge on the magnet each time. I recommend it.

Another great site to visit.

Re: Stainless steel Scott's oil filter.

I recently purchased and installed the Scott's oil filter on my 00 929 with about 12.5k miles. Have not changed oil or anything, so I do not have any feedback yet.

I bought it for 99.00 at KneeDraggers.com. I bought it because it made sense to have a replaceable filter that would lower oil temp and collect and ferous particles in the oil. Also, I don't know what others pay, but for a good single use filter it is $12 - $17.
