that's right, but you can order from Mann filters, or at least find a cross reference number from them and get a better filter..

I really think that running synthetic would be a good idea and using a better filter would add to the longevity of the motor..
Just my 2 cents..
And we could learn from each other..if you will allow it..
I also want to say it has been "my pleasure" , discussing such topics as oil filtration and it's characteristics..
Hope to see you soon....on the lake....!

The platinum filters are made up of fully synthetic media. The also have a silicone anti drain back valve rather then a rubber one. If you run synthetic oil more then 8k I usually suggest using one of those filters. Me personally, I change my oil every 3k so I use the gold filter and our house brand synthetic oil.
