I'm assuming that the 2012 FB25 Forester and the 2013 FB25 Outback use the same (factory) oil filter. If correct, has anyone cut open the new filter? I'm interested in what you found.

There are different filters.

you can use the same filter on both.

the 2013 outback comes with a tiny blue filter

the 2011+ forester has a black toyo roki filter.

with 130 in the part number.

Give me a week or two for my 2013 Forester to get enough miles, and I'll cut mine open.
I ordered the "130" OEM parts as replacments as well, they seem like top notch construction.

I just got my parts guy to give me 20% off filters if I purchased 3 or more...
Since I couldnt talk the other 3 parts guys into it I stocked up with 6

Now If I can just get that 20% off the subaru oil...

I'm using the black TokyoRoki 160 filter on the wife's 13 Legacy with the FB motor. Bought them off ebay from a dealer. Paid around $6-7 a piece with free shipping. Based on previous reviews it seems like the black Subaru filters are a quality product.
