Have always used the regular Wix oil filters with good success. Is there much difference in filtering capabilities and the amount of dirt the XP will hold opposed to the regular filter. Also, any issues with the XP being restrictive in terms of good oil pressure? Thank You in advance.

The XP is only worth the extra money if you go way beyond 10k in your OCI smile

I've used both, in real-world driving and eye-balling the dipstick, you can't tell the difference.

I agree slacktide. I bet the Wix XP could very easily go 20k miles plus.

This all depends on how "dirty" your engines is ... And, whether you are running additives to clean stuff up? If not, and your change oil at 6~8,000 miles, there is not much point.

OTOH, if you are running a by-pass filter and doing 30,000 mile oils changes I'd run an XP as the spin on laugh

Enough difference in efficiency for me not to use an XP.

WIX touts the XP for much longer OCIs than the regular WIX filter.

Many people, myself included, religiously use Toyota filters with their 50% filtering efficiency. Nothing to worry about IMO.

My biggest issue is the normal price compared to say a TG or an Ultra. People buy an Ultra and run it for less than 10k too though.

I run good filters for two 6K OCIs. So could everyone with similar lengths.


Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all BITOG Members.

There isn't any proof Toyota filters are 51% efficient @ 20 microns in the multi pass, (too fast), test. Someone said it was so over six years ago, and drew a picture. There is documented proof from an independent party on their letterhead a Toyota copy filter was superior in particle filtration to a Fram Ultra. In a real world test, on a car that puts particles into the oil. People believe the no proof Toyota claim and it becomes a rumor, then becomes a reference.
My unpopular theory is cellulose, wood cells, filters finer over time than any all synthetic full flow filter. Filters combining wood cells and synthetic fibers is the best combo, in my unpopular opinion. fence smile

And to add to this logic we recently concluded it was 99/35+50/20
As a primary FU user I find the XP construction to look superior bypass and all

Good success shouldn't be messed with in my opinion. The oil pressure should be the same. If you know your filters are fully choked at your fixed interval, then an XP would be better. Or you have a race car with an enormous oil pump.
