Oil filter for IMS solution

For those who have fitted the pressure-fed IMS solution, what oil filter do you run?

JFP why the XP version vs the regular 51348 ? I believe they are both 21 micron filtration .

XP is designed for use with full synthetics and uses a different media material

Good info thanks for sharing . I recently noticed the 51348 are stamped as made in China ☹️ . Online the 51348XP says made in USA . Previous 51348 filters said made in USA or Mexico . I prefer USA when possible .

By chance do you know if there is an XP filter that doesn't have the anti drainback valve that fits the IMS Solution filter adapter ? It's not needed when mounted vertically . Is that correct ?

Not exactly sure what you are trying to accomplish here with the drain valve............

Wix filters are made in multiple locations, we have never seen any difference in performance of effectiveness based upon where they came from.

I was asking because why have the added complexity of the anti drainback valve if it's not needed . I realize it's not all that complex but I use the KISS principal whenever possible .

Having never had an issue with anti-drain back valves, and we have done a LOT of oil changes over the years, I don't see it as an issue.
