Hey I Guys ... I have 2004 Mazda 3 2.3L It uses cartridge filter I would like to convert it .. to SpinOn Why ? 2.0L filters are easily accessible .. Less mess ... more filter to chose from ... http://www.finishlineperformance.com/store/product.php?productid=16840&cat=288&page=1 Here is the part ... I just wonder if its safe ? Im worried about slowing down flow or pressure ... Any Ideas recommendations ... PS. another big thing is that those cartridge filter are prone to cracking you have to use torque wrench .. its really annoying ...

reuse the old bolts, thats a really good price. it will void warranty if you have a filter related issue, especially if you do not have regular work done at a dealer.
