I use the M1-108 oil filter (pretty small) on both my Outback and Forester as it is the part number the book at PartSource recommends. I have read about people using the M1-104 (it is the reccommended one for H6 engines) on the H4 engines as well as the M1-110 which is suppose to be a longer version of the M1-108. Which is the best to use to provide the maximum oil filtration?

Actually they are all the same price ($15) regardless of size, so which one do you think would suite the engine the best? I usually do an OCI of 6000 km (~4000 miles). I'm leaning towards the M1-110 since it looks the biggest..

Wow :gasp: I thought that was cheap compared to the Suby dealer near me that sells the oems for $22. Where are you buying yours?

What type of oil pressure gauge do you reccommend and where is a good place to buy one?

Even if I don't get a gauge now I might try out the M1-110 with synthetic oil. What is the appropriate mileage I can get out of it?

Thanks for all the help and info, I always look forward to learn something new. I'm pretty meticulous about car maintenance especially with the Subaru's, so i'll definetly be checking out my options for oil gauges and probably install one in the spring and i'll be saving my money oil filters as well :29:

I was told by the service guy that they cost $22 when I took the Forester in for a synthetic oil change about 2 years ago. I guess they were trying to make the service seem cheaper... and I foolishly believed him. I'll go see how much they actually cost at the parts department sometime.
