Default K&P Engineering stainless steel reusable oil filter

Hey fellas,
Came across this on turner today.
https://www.turnermotorsport.com/p-4...shed-end-caps/

A reusable stainless steel oil filter. Hmm, whats everyoneís opinion??
Would you be comfortable using this?
In my opinion at $100 Iím not sure about it, especially considering how much of a pain IMG_7864.JPGand messy cleaning it out would be, not to mention the cost of all the brake clean used.

Uh, what exactly is the point? An oil filter is like $8. If you changed your oil every 5000 miles that's over 60K miles before you break even on an oil filter that probably has worse filtration properties. Sounds like a terrible idea.

I think it would make sense if you had a separate container where you bath car parts in a reusable degreaser. Then all the heavy stuff just falls to the bottom of the bath.

But yeah if you donít have that I think using all that brake cleaner might take 20 oil changes to break even.

Completely agree with you guys. I donít see this as ever breaking even compared to normal filters. I donít believe it is worth it.

I'd compare it to the best paper tech, specifically, what micron size does it filter?
Regardless, I buy a box of Mahle at a time, about 6.xx each back when I got the box several years back, but I do low miles/year. So at 5k miles per change, 12 filters, 60k miles of filters for say $78 and I don't have to clean anything.
If you do a ton of miles and the specs are .. say 5 microns, might be worth it, but still, having to clean it every change, dunno I'd mess with it.

Lower micron ratings will result in more pressure. Might cause more oil to bypass the filter which would make the filter less effective.

Per the Turner website

"Features:
- Consistent filtering across entire filter surface

- Superior ASTMF316 filtration performance

- 7 times the flow of comparable paper oil filters

- Magnetic Prefiltering

- Progressive rate bypass combined with high flow characteristics of the filter media avoids unfiltered oil bypassing the filter during cold startup and high rpm

- No more cutting apart messy paper filters for trapped debris inspection

- Proven in Motorsports, Military and Aerospace applications for years. Technology is FAA approved for use in aircraft.

- At regular oil changes, clean to K&P's specifications for continued used - a true lifetime filter."

That all sounds good and interesting. However, watching the cleaning video idk if I would want to deal with that when I can just discard/recycle my old one anyway.
