Same deal up here. I'd suggest a SOPUS distributor for anyone who's interested. Their price on the product up here is very competitive, as far as Canadian synthetic prices go.

Last K&N oil filter I looked at was made in Asia somewhere. Put it back on the shelf immediately. Not going to pay top dollar for an Asian made oil filter. I won't be buying any high dollar oil change specials with those filters either.

Nice looking filter. Looks like spacing near the seam was always an issue, so maybe there is a change in media in the newer ones also.

I just want to make sure I'm understanding this correctly. I just looked up 3 filters on the Wix website, that would fit three of my vehicles. They all list a beta ratio of 2/20=6/20. This means 50% @ 6 microns, and 95% @ 20 microns, correct?
