    Would you all like to see ISO 4548-12 Oil Filter Lab Testing Comparison, Efficiency & Capacity, Pressure vs Flow, Bubble Point, and Burst?

    The delta-p curve will be shifted up more and more as the oil becomes thicker - so at every flow rate the delta-p will be increased. Yes, filters are way more likely to hit bypass with cold thick oil and some engine revs. Key is to keep engine RPM down until the oil warms up, regardless of...

    No doubt the OEM bypass is increased due to the high oil pump flow rates, but some of it could also be due to media flow performance. The flow vs delta-p test would tell if the high bypass setting factor is also due to how the media flows.

    Lets see the cars!!!!

    Thanks ... I bought it new in 2005 and will probably never get rid of this truck. Like it just as much today as the day I bought it. :)

    Filter delivery!

    Maybe you're the new hair splitting master, lol. Well ... if they did go louvers because of the M+H/Purolator design and acquisition, then my implication would be correct. The clarified question was actually: ... did louvers creep into WIX/NAPA after M+H got hold of WIX? And: Yeah, but the...

    @Ascent Filtration Testing ... Suggestion, when you post up the video you might want to start a new thread and then reference/link this one in the new thread. Otherwise, it could be pretty buried in this long thread for people not following the progress.

    Filter delivery!

    You forgot the rest of my comment: "... and if so that might be a M+h/Purolator design factor thing creeping in." Then I clarified in post #14. Enough hair splitting. So the question still stands ... did louvers creep into WIX/NAPA after M+H got hold of WIX? Apparently yes.

    Oil Filters for BMW N55 Engine

    ^^^ Pretty common for many cartridge filters.

    Filter delivery!

    Yeah, but the question is focused on did louvers start showing up after M+H got their hands on WIX? And my comment had nothing to do with if Purolator is making WIX/NAPA Gold filters or not.

    Filter delivery!

    Are any new WIX/NAPA filters using louvers now ... and if so that might be a H+M/Purolator design factor thing creeping in.

    Inside the Tesla Model 3 Electric Motor

    Interesting video of the Tesla electric motor design.

    Does 5W-30 REALLY protect better than 5W-20?

    At the same operating conditions, xW-30 will give more film thickness (MOFT) than xW-20 ... so yes, it would therefore have more protection headroom to prevent moving parts from rubbing on each other. Been that way ever since two moving parts had a layer of oil between them.

    Make wise choices

    Sorry to hear about this. :( I rode with a couple of younger guys many years ago and one of them ended up getting killed by being too risky on the road. I saw him crash twice while riding, but he never got hurt in those cases. When he crashed and died, he was riding alone. I've done some...

    Break in

    That's what matters, and that's how I've always done it but I just do the first oil change at 500~600 miles. My bikes never get more than 3,000 miles on an oil change anyway, so really not worried about too long of OCIs.

    Break in

    Anyone seen those videos of the new bikes coming off the assembly line, being fired up and then ran on a dyno through the gears to redline? That's the initial break-in. 😄

    School me on fork oil

    Motorcycle service manuals call out a specified oil weight/viscosity like 5, 10, 15, 20, etc and each of those grades cover a range of viscosity - just like in motor oils. Cycle manufacturers call out a specified weight knowing the typical use of the bike, so IMO no need to worry about using...
