so do you plan to change it back to stock? or atleast shift to a filter that is more restrictive but also protective? thats what is needed in a daily drive right?
how frequently do you change your oil? and how much has the car run on this filter?
Damn I know how bad this filter can be in terms of a "Daily Drive" but I will change it very soon. I had NO IDEA what I was buying when I was sold this filter and I've been stuck with it ever since.

I change my engine oil after about 7000-8000k kms, even then the oil isn't dirty to an extent that I have to worry so no problem on that front.

I've had this filter since my post in the other thread (October 2006).

A filter like this will screw up your engine. Engine oil is a vague way to check this. If you open up you will surely see scuff marks on the barrel because of this filter.

I am using this in my kinetic for the last couple of months and it has improved the performance drastically. I have compared this with UNI filters on the same vehicle and the difference is very much noticeable. My kinetic is running with a modified exhaust.

Going through the review here, seems like it may affect your engine, but for the kind of usage i do (20kms per week) I am going to retain it.
