Now I'm confused, that Wix seems it may have sealing problems. In that study it said the FL1-A had a closed end bypass valve and not in the open end as I thought.
The big question is "how often does an oil filter bypass open", given 5,000k oil changes and a 20W-60 gas engine oil? The Z9 opens at 15psi and the Wix about 8-10psi.
The reason for all this is that I bought a magnet that fits on the end of the oil filter, which sounds like a good idea. But if the bypass is down the end near the magnet, when the bypass opens, some of this crap held by the magnet may wash into the engine. So a bypass in the open end would be better (the oil does not wash over the "dirty" side of the filter up to the bypass at the end).
Maybe a magnetic drain plug might be safer.
