Oil change and magnets

Recommended Posts

So I'm doing my first oil change since I installed a reuseable oil filter from PC Racing. It has a magnet on the inside to help capture particles. You can clearly see the black ring where the magnet has some things clinging. A similar amount of crud was stuck the magnet drain plug. Hopefully this helps prolong engine life?

Which the reusable filter or magnet... magnet will make you feel better about "catching" tiny particles and the oil filter likely is not nearly as a low-micron efficient as a paper one (and messy to deal with).
So NO to both.

I just use a very strong, reusable, stick-on magnet outside a stock-type filter... on everything without specialized oiling systems (dry-sump, etc, with different filters). They are readily available from SummitRacing and others.

I just stuck some n52's on the filter as well as a plug magnet from "Dimple".

Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women.
