I'm not quibbling over price; I am asking about performance. That study
only compares the author's opinion of the appearance of the filter; not how
well it actually cleans oil.
Also, he only looks at filters listed for a particular application. Which
means his results as to comparative filter element area and so on may or may
not be valid for a different application. It doesn't take very long poring
over oil filter cross-references to figure out that some filter brands have
a different range of application than others.
This application has has bypass and anti-drainback valves, which presumably
the element used for spin-on conversions does not (since the original
cartridge did not).
