Anyone using one? If so, does it keep your oil cleaner than an AC Delco?

The PureOne filters better than the Mobil1. Cheaper too.

It sounds like that Mobil 1 filter seems worth the $10 except for it having bursting problems on fords.

Sounds like a PureOne is my next oil filter.

I know they're expensive, but I use K&N performance gold. Maybe that'* being anal, I dunno.

I have received many reports of these filters failing at high pressures. It seems that the seam where the backplate crimps to the case can split.
I wonder if they've remedied that situation by now.

I agree. Although I do like the extra filtering capacity of the PF-52 Since my engine needs all the filtering it can get.

The drain back valve is meant to help in horizontal mounting correct?
