Long story short is, most definitely enough. The XG has pretty good efficiency even at 5 microns.

I would highly recommend you get a metal filter boss from one of the many suppliers that make one. I don't trust the plastic ones that come with those filters.

Also, don't forget to toss some good high temp magnets in the pan. 68RFE solenoids hate ferrous metal contamination.

And don't forget to tape off the open end of the filter and wire wheel off the filter's paint. I don't even know if it is an issue, but it's super easy to knock off all the paint with a wire wheel. Just takes a few seconds. Then wipe the can down with a towel and brake cleaner, so you're not leaving behind metal and paint dust.


What is a metal filter boss?

Could you post a link to the magnets you used?

Did you ever take pictures of your remote filter setup?

On subaru the ATF spin on filter filters only 10 to 15 of the oil on each pass most is diverted through a screen. Those that substituted a regular engine filter wound up having transmission failures.

Subarus must be different. Mine having no issues after more than 20k miles.

Google "68rfe steel filter screw" for the metal filter boss. I'll post pics of my setup soon.

Thanks, I'd never heard of that part. And I know very little about the 68RFE. Driven a few with that trans for short distances, but I still just like my old NV5600. Super simple and never needs anything.

Looking forward to the pics. I've been gathering parts for around a month now to put together an inline filter for our 11' QX56 and it's 7AT. Getting pretty close.

Thanks double wasp, what a great find you have here. I took my rfe filter off and cut it open at 30k, stiff as a board, likely been on bypass for a while. Very smart knocking off the paint as well, proper mechanic you are sir.

The cross reference to that m1 filter is 57055xp for the wix xp. I just did my change, but I saved my old filter, I will see if that xp will direct fit. If I can't get RP I think I'd like the XP, but also really appreciate having Fram Ultra as an option. great thread bud, and the metal thread upgrade is a must as well.
