For my Impreza in my signature. 5000 mile OCI right now.

My options are Mobil 1 M1-110, Fram PH7317 Extra Guard, Fram XG7317 Ultra, Fram TG7313 Tough Guard, Subaru 15208AA15A (blue filter), Purolator PSL14612, Bosch 3974, microGreen 101-7, K&N HP-1010 (I've been using this).

Does it really matter out of all of those? Just choose what's cheapest?

So you'd say whatever's cheapest would work just fine?

+2 on the Ultra, I'm not a K&N fan myself. I'm in the process of a TWENTY thousand mile Ultra run on the xB in my sig.

Subaru filter because of the correct bypass pressure.

IMO, Fram Ultra, Mobil 1, microGreen; of those 3, whichever has the best price.

Any of those but the Frams, I wouldn't put a Fram on my enemy's lawnmower. I had an orange can Fram collapse on me and starved my engine of oil in an old truck I had, cost me an engine so that ended my days of using Fram. Filter only had a few hundred miles on it too. Junk!

The most important thing is that the oil filter doesn't fail.

And the Purolator Synthetic filter is fine as well.

You do know the OEM filter is made by Fram? As is the Mobil 1?

What about bypass PSI? I read only the OEM, Wix, and Napa filters have the correct 23PSI bypass rating. That bit I know to be true, but I don't know if it really matters? Most people seem to say there's a 99.99% chance it doesn't matter and the people who say only go with the OEM/Wix/Napa don't really have anything to back them up other than "it sounds better go with correct spec".

I say M1 as my boss put almost 14,600 miles on one and it held up good. He's going 20k on the M1 filter I put back on. So, M1 or FU

That's the strongest support I've seen for M1 filters!
