Was at Wally World today and picked up a $2.xx Super Tech filter to cut open. What does everyone think? I bought a FRAM ultra for the GF's matrix but they had only one so I bought a second one of these Super Tech filters hoping they are decent enough to run on my MR2. Both cars see short OCI's and will be on Valvoline MaxLife Red bottle 5w30.

Looks very good. I'm running a FL-400S on the Camry for 4-5k then using the two ST 4386 I got while back

Use that filter with confidence smile

Looks like good quality but very tiny. Why not use the ST4386 instead? smile

Nice looking little filter. Filter media cartridge looks like the one my Yamaha uses.

That combo valve is the deal breaker for me. I will no longer use any Wix/Napa/ST filter that has that piece of junk. They will cause such a bad start up noise. Otherwise never had any problem with those filters.

Do other Wix filters have this combo valve, or just the low end Wix made filter ?

I keep a few STs in stock. The price is right for a good short OCI filter. Nice pics. Thanks.

Mostly their low end stuff. Most regular WIX/NAPA Gold have either a regular (not combo style) base end or dome end bypass valve.

use one of those with confidence

My only complaint would be that the filter media seems to be short and therefore not much media

Combo valve takes up too much space, & is a known failure point (usually ADBV function failure)-if you use one, keep the OCI short, I wouldn't go past 5K on one.

My mr2 has a pretty short OCI. Usually like 2500 miles or so. I have a shorter commute.

Certainly a good looking filter, especially for the price.

At 70% efficiency (at 20 microns), it would make a great lawn mower filter.
