Ok, you Honeywell haters/Framophobes. grin2 You now have a new Wix optiIon. I was browsing nasioc's Newbie forum (of all places) and came across a reply stating that there is a brand new Wix filter with the Subaru 23 psi bypass seting that wasn't even in stores yet. The person did not state their souce.

I checked Wix's site and found this pdf in the news section showing the 57712 mentioned in the nasioc reply, but no mention of bypass (bottom of list):
http://www.wixconnect.com/assets/WIX%2007-04-11%20(Revised%2001-17-2012)NOP.pdf

So I sent an email to Wix and received the following reply:

Hi,

What's the bypass pressure on your new 57712 oil filter for Subaru applications?

Thanks,
Dennis


Happy hunting!

Cool. Do you happen to know the length and diameter? Because Wix does not show any data on their webpage for #57712

D'oh! Forgot to ask. I sent another email. Maybe ut's the same as the filter it's replacing.

I don't think anyone has really found out for sure why Subaru uses/specifies such a high by-pass valve setting. Even a medium sized PureOne only produces ~5 PSID across the oil filter with 12 GPM flow of hot oil flow.

http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubb...451#Post1619451

I can't imagine the Subaru filter or any aftermarket filter with a 23 PSI bypass setting running anywhere close to 23 PSID during normal operation.

Possibly to limit by-pass when cold. The pump by-pass is 100-105 psi for the turbo engines. Subaru engines move a lot of oil.

Also should have asked if it has an Anti-Drainback Valve. If it does, I'm going to need a new keyboard thumbsup

That's a good theory ... and I doubt the PSID with hot oil isn't anywhere near the 23 PSI of the bypass valve setting.

Cold oil, maybe ... but when the oil is cold the pump will hit pressure 100~105 PSI relief with much less oil flow output, which also helps keep the PSID across the filter in check with cold oil.

Height is 2.577. Is diameter "O.D."? That's 2.685.
Flow rate is 9-11 GPM's.

I used a Fram tough guard one time on my Subie, until I realized it was junk. I then used a P1 for a couple of oil changes and now I've settled on the M1 filters with the oil change specials that happen once every few months.

Thanks. Those dimensions are the same as I measure on the Tokyo Roki ....A100 filters.

Subaru says the oil pump in the 2.5L turbo motor can put out 12.4 gal/min, or more, at 5000rpm and 176 degF. Will the Wix filter go into bypass at >5000rpm, because of its 11 gpm limit?

In my FSM, the pump bypass is listed as 85psi, for the 2.5L turbo motor.

I'm wondering if that 12 GPM at 5000 RPM with 176 deg F oil is actually what the engine & filter is flowing, or if that's a raw volumetric output of the oil pump with no restriction provided by the engine + filter oiling system (?).

Even is there was 12 GPM of oil at 176 deg F going through a medium sized filter, I wouldn't expect more than ~8-10 PSI pressure drop across the filter, since a PureOne shows ~5 PSID with 212 deg F oil.

http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubb...451#Post1619451

I really don't know what the "11 GPM limit" really means on the WIX filter. Could be it means the PSID is getting close to the bypass valve opening pressure setting.

So that might mean the engine will flow this 12.4 GPM at 5000 RPM with 176 deg F oil when the oil pump is maxed out at 85 PSI (ie, in pressure relief mode).

Ah, the 100 psi was correct for the 2.0L. I saw that in print somewhere and is exactly what I saw on the gauge in my 2003 WRX.
