The only oil filter test I can find: http://www.gmtruckcentral.com/art...esheet.htm

It's from 2011 and tests with 30-micron particles, rather than the usual 20-micron particles. K&N model HP-3002 rated B for filtration, the same as Purolator Classic L34631 (cheap Purolator) and Mobil 1 (synthetic fiber). Amsoil EAo-24 and Royal Purple 30-1218 (both synthetic) did best, rated A, followed by Fram XG-5 Xtended Guard (synthetic), A-. I'm not sure the testing is valid because Fram Xtended Guard is claimed to be 97% efficient by Fram, while their Tough Guard filters are claimed to be 99% efficient and were rated C- in the review.

The test info you included is for the HP ("high Performance") line, and unfortunately, this deals is for the PS ("pro series") line ,which is their "budget" filter line. The HP line are the white K&N filters with the "nut" on the end. They're the same as the Mobile1 filters, but actually cost a few $ more usually, so just get the Mobile1 unless you find the K&N on sale/for less. Both Mobile1 and K&N HS filters are made by Champ, using the old ("performance") design as opposed to Champ's new ("encore") design. Champ's encore design is a cost and quality reduction. It's used for the inexpensive house-brand filters at various retailers, including WalMart's house brand. Encore's comparable to other low-cost filters, and my concern is that these K&N Pro Series filters may also be the same Champ encore filters, which is a shame. I haven't found info verifying it's an encore though.

Unless you (or I) can find info on who/what make these low-end PS filters are, I'd stick with Wix. Even the base model Wix disigns are arguably better than other base filters (including the Champ Encore if that's what this actually is). Supposedly the higher-end Wix lines are also pretty decent, but I haven't used any Wix filters and only know what I've read about them.

If I find info on what this K&N PS filters are inside, I'll update my post.

use the white ones all the time on my burb. the nut makes them so easy to remove. m1 filters are good as well. Wouldn't run one of these over a purolator at Walmart, but for free delivery, these are worth 5 bucks.

$8.63 for my car.
I find it funny that synthetic oil also requires expensive Oil Filter to clean junks from oil.

I'm not aware that they do - synthetic motor oils work with traditional oil filters. Hypothetically, I could see making an oil filter that perhaps works better (allows more/faster flow or avoids pressurization issues) with group IV synthetic motor oils. True synthetics have smaller and highly consistent molecular size than the group II/III "fake" (as I call them) synthetics most companies are pumping out, so you could probably make a synthetic filter mesh that was highly conducive to the synthetic properties. This is ~not~ my field of expertise at all. I'm just extrapolating on the idea.
Also, there are oil filters with ~synthetic~ mesh as opposed to the commonly used paper based fiter mesh. The filters with synthetic mesh - Mobile1 and K&N HS series for example (both made by Champ and using their old, premium design), and also a number of the new "extended run" models coming out, such as the Purolator BOSS and Fram Ultra (note: I'm just guessing on those last two) - are all made to operate w/ regular oil as well, and don't require synthetic oil. If you have info on cars requiring synth oil with a synth-specific oil filter that goes with it, do post, as I'd be very curious to read about it as well. Thanks.

Hmmm imho, Synthetic Oils call for a longer oil change Interval (typically), thus you need a filter with larger capacity to (hold debris) and higher quality media & backing to work longer (through the life of one oil change).

If u head to BITOG, people have very good impression of FRAM Ultra oil filters (~$9 at wally world)
