What makes you say so - personal experience? I'm just curious, not trying to be an A$$ in the slightest.
I wish i could find the data i was reading but anyway if memory serves me right K&N takes out particles as small as 25 mic and in another filters like Mobil 1 ,P1, etc. takes particles out as low as 10 mic.

also i think K&N only claims 90% efficiency. All the others are in the 96+ category.
plus it'* just a common under standing that they flow more,and in a oil filter you can't
have both(flow/filtration)

there a good filter i would use one, just wouldn't pay for one.

Default filter

First of all you should check if it voids new car warranties, that tells you a lot.
Second, I've used Purolator for years without a single engine oil related problem, so if it ain't broke don't fix it.

I believe the "Magnusson-Moss Act" of 1975 means you can't have a warranty voided by not using a dealer'* oil or filters.....I know that'* the case with AMSOIL.

Access to the complete Magnuson-Moss Act is available on the Internet by key words Magnuson-Moss Act or Federal Trade Commission.

The FTC set down three rules under the Act: the Disclosure Rule, the Pre-Sale Availability Rule and the Dispute Resolution Rule.

Those rules require warrantors to title their written warranty as either full or limited, provide a single, clear and easy-to-read document that spells out certain information about coverage and ensure that warranties are available where the products are sold so that consumers can read them before buying.

In passing the Act, Congress meant to give consumers access to warranty information, let consumers comparison shop for warranties, encourage warranty competition and promote timely and complete performance of warranty obligations.

While the Magnuson-Moss Act does not require manufacturers to provide a written warranty, it provides specific rules when one is provided. Among those provisions, FTC regulations state: (c) No warrantor of a consumer product may condition his written or implied warranty of such product on the consumers using, in connection with such product, any article or service (other than article or service provided without charge under the terms of the warranty) which is identified by brand, trade, or corporate name; except that the prohibition of this subsection may be waived by the Commission if (1) the warrantor satisfies the Commission that the warranted product will function properly only if the article or service so identified is used in connection with the warranted product, and (2) the Commission finds that such a waiver is in the public interest. (15 U.*.C.2302(C))
Use what you want, I used it once, didn't notice any difference, so wouldn't spend the money.
