The XG3593A is a larger can, and the Napa Gold 7055 is a thread-end bypass filter that’s about 1/3 of the cost of the XG when it’s on sale. I’ve used all 3 and didn’t see a difference- but if you get the filters that use P-type gaskets instead of flat (I forget the brands that do this, sorry) it will protect against the usual weeping that the EJ seems to get with flat gaskets.Good to see people finally using alternative filters to the blue subie fram cans. I was told for years to stray from OEM would result in instant death. Although the shoddy cardboard construction is perfectly sufficient for my 3-4k OCI's I have been using XG7313's on my EJ motor for the last couple changes without catastrophic engine failure.
I have to wonder if the crazy-high oil pump flow is at least partially responsible for the seepage.
