Review: $3 Oil Filters!

http://loopfilters.com/product.aspx

what is the micron filtration of your media? –
25 micron
what is the efficiency rate? –
efficiency rate is approximately 97.4%

In your earlier email you also asked what brand we OEM for. I have to apologize to you that due to our manufacture agreements I can not disclose that information to you, but we do OEM for Japanese/Korean/Germany manufactures, and we are pretty big in South America as well. We also OEMed some American brands in the past, but they have moved to China for cheaper cost reasons. Recently we decided to launch our own brand Loop into North American market, and I’m glad to see that people have already started selling online and discuss about our products online.

See post below.
$2.72 a filter, what a steal!

Looks a lot better then Fram, that's for sure. And comparing to STP/Bosch, it's got a relief valve bypass. The only worry is the "Wooden Pulp Filtration Technology".

I'm guessing it's stronger than regular generic paper?

Why skimp on a part costing just a few dollars when for just a few more you could have a name brand product that will work very well? There are many very good filters out there for not a whole lot more.

Wood pulp sounds just like fancy wording for paper media and every filter for this application will have a built in bypass and be made of low carbon steel so I am not sure what the big deal is? I don't see any filtration specs listed for these?

$19.99 for 12 FILTERS! How i can you say no to that? With shipping it comes to $2.72 a filter or $33.22. Compared to $6.24 for name brand like Purolator. $6.24 x 12 adds up to $74.88.
That's a savings of $41.66. With that, you can buy 12 quarts of full synthetic oil?

Are you still under the power train warranty? I am pretty sure Nissan would have an easy out if you ever have any issues that could be related back to the lubrication system with no published specs on these. If you buy the Purolator (or whatever high end filter) when the local parts store has an oil and filter deal it is basically free, $30 for 5 quarts synthetic and a filter with a good Silicon ADBV, synthetic media and a recognized name. With the high rev starts on the VQ I like to know that oil is reaching the top end as soon as possible. There is a noticeable difference between the Pure1 and even a good filter like the K & N in start up rattle. Cheap is not always cheap.

My favorite
