Was going to use this as a "max oversize" filter for the Impreza, which calls for a 6607 I think (Napa 7712 - TINY!) but the gasket matches and this should stick down far enough that I don't need a wrench to get the thing off. It looks pretty good to me, but I would prefer a metal crimp seam. But, I'll use one for about a 7.5k interval and see how it looks. I think I paid about $4.50 for this on the Farm and Fleet sale, otherwise about $9.

Isn’t that a transmission filter?

confused Might be, I picked it up last year. I'll have to check again, because I've killed many brain cells since that purchase. Doesn't look like it though from the specs?

I believe NAPA classifies it as a transmission filer.

Yeah, it looks like it can be used as a hydraulic filter as well as an engine oil filter.

51347 is a WIX oil filter.

If you chop off the leading 5 digit, it becomes a NAPA Gold part number: 1347.

thumbsup I just know it's about 6 times bigger than the "OEM" size, and I want to try one because I'll be able to reach it without tools or slicing my hands on the exhaust shields. Why Subaru did the exhaust this way on the Impreza vs. the great setup on Foresters, I'll never understand. My hands are "meaty" and I can't even get in to wrap my hand around the filter- and using a filter wrench takes about 2 dozen quarter-turns because of physical restrictions.

Filter looks good if you have a use for it, and the space. I believe this is PH3600/ Wix 51516 size, just with metric baseplate, for size comparisons.

FRAM only lists the PH2849A as a direct replacement.

Man, wasting a lot of good filter for "science"

I think we know what a WIX looks like.

Occasionally I like the banter. I think he missed the point of the exercise is all. Not everyone wants to pay $8-12 for an oil filter but they want to know what the MICs and other “cheap” filters look like. You and I try to help the 99%ers lol

I’m hoping the next four years will make American oil filter manufacturing great again... LOL
