Sorry to bump this old thread, but that NASIOC thread is hard to read. Uncle Scotty is a friggin idiot that thinks he knows everything. He makes blanket statements with no data to backup his words. I have worked in the petroleum chemical industry, and seen a lot of testing with oils/filters. That guy is really passing along a lot of misinformation. This reminds me why I hate NASIOC and never visit the site anymore.
Hey someone else that feels the same about Uncle Scotty!

I think everyone with an engineering backround feels that way about him
Yeah, I was honestly just doing some research on different filters. This thread on IWSTI was nice and informative, with less opinion. That thread was more opinion than fact. There are so many logical fallacies in Uncle Scotty's comments. When anyone challenges him, he just says it has been discussed before. Ok, so it has been discussed before. That should mean you know where to quickly find the data to back up your claims. I want to see some UOA's and filtration results, not post after post of insults and immature behavior. On a side note, there are quite a few engineers on IWSTI. There should be more of us on every car forum!

And that's not much different than here or any other Subaru enthusiast forum. Most oil filter threads have comments like, "OmG!, teh oEM HoNEYweLL fiLTAR SUx cuz itz TINY aND mADE by frAMZ and WiLL aSSploDE!".

Uncle Scotty was rightfully put in his place. I will continue to seek out his future postings to troll the moron. The only explanation for him is he's either got a condition or is on medication. You'll see people defending him saying he helps people, but in that thread, he wasn't trying to help anyone but his ego and failed miserably. When he realized he couldn't hang, to save himself, I'm willing to bet he asked the other moron to lock it.

That thread got me all kinds of love mail. :)

I recently discovered that Purolater had a synthetic oil filter and I purchase a few off Amazon. I just changed my oil with my last standard purolator filter and will do OA after I use the synthetic. Will report back once done... Maybe in another 6-12 months though. Part # I got is PSL14610.
