When i went to my local tuning racer ricer garage to get my oil temp and pressure gauges installed, i wanted to pick up a high quality oil filter. The original Proton Filter leaves much to be desired quality wise, so i decided to go for this mid raange filter, made by a tuner company ,WORKS Engineering.
I dont see a thread for these, so i snapped some pics to show you guys.

here is a pic of the insides..the baffles..

With claims like that, I would stay clear of them. I was wondering if the Fuller Brush saleaman was pushing these?

I don't like filters with big opens like that one. I feel better with small holes. If there is a catastrophic failure, nothing big gets into the engine.

That is total fail oil filter I'd rather use a 2$ jobber filter.

Looks like you are likely to have cutting flash downstream of the filter media. That thing is scary looking, to me.

I didn't get past the first sentence where they claim a 2-5% horsepower increase.

From an oil filter...

Right.

Maybe if combined with a bunch of Kanji lettering, Momo stickers and Type R badges...

Dude, what a total, utter, pile of trash. That thing is welded up in someones living room in China. THROW THAT THING IN THE GARBAGE!!

Seriously, a Fram orange can of death is a SERIOUS improvement over that junk filter.

Look inside that thing. There is a TON of blow torch cutting slag that is on the "clean" side of the filter. That stuff is going to break off and go straight to your bearings and ruin the engine.

That is the WORST looking filter engine damager I have ever seen.

Worse flow I would say, given unlimited outlet size. Oil is blocked a lot behind the large panels between the "doors", and has to travel further to the "doors" to find a way out. No better flow at least, as filters are designed to have excess flow capacity through the holes compared to the outlet tube and what's further down the line.

Total moronic piece of trash, that filter.
Look at the side of the box, where their unit of pressure is kg/cm. Wrong, and even if you assume its a typo, and they meant kgf/cm^2, thats old deprecated crud units, which should be kPascals or PSI pressure. Shows they are not for real engineering-wise.
And, no, you're not going to get 2-5% hp increase, just no way.

Next up is a magnet gizmo wrapped around a water pipe that is supposed to soften the water. Same guy bought a truck load of these filters.

"...increases flow rate of the filtered oil back into the engine by Eddy Conduction."

What?

Can you say m-u-m-b-o j-u-m-b-o?

The only flow rate this filter increases is the flow of money from your wallet to theirs.

"... engine more effective and increases horsepower..."
" Eddy Conduction "
" cures erectiled dysfunction "
(OK, I made that last one up, but they should have added that...)

With so many grammatical errors, misspellings, and false science mentioned, this reminds me of scam trojan junk e-mail where someone from Africa or Asia gives their scam away by not using good english or good facts.
