Interesting. I suppose, if one wanted to go with the spin-on oil filter adapter (so as to utilize the---reputedly better---oil filters available), you could also utilize the magnets you used (slapped on the outside of the metal filter). Saves a few bucks anyway, over the FilterMag...

Sure, so long as the spin-on filter shell is steel and not aluminum. You could add several since they come as a 4-pak.
