WIX 57061 Oil Filter VS. Hyundai Oil Filter
 
I'm an Amsoil dealer and they are selling WIX 57061 Oil Filterfor my 2006 LX Sonata. I'm using Amsoil Synthetic 5W-20 with a 7500 mile change interval. I have been using the Hyundai filter. Any pro's/Con's to using the WIX with this type of interval? Can I expect same type or better performance from a WIX filter?

That's the cartridge filter, right? I don't really know much about those.

For the standard screw-on base filters, there was an issue with aftermarket filters not having the correct specs which led to oil starvation. Most commonly it seemed that Fram was the culprit; the reputation for "good" aftermarket filters seemed to be that Wix and Purolator were okay.

In that case, though, I think it had more to do with the pressure of the bypass valve. Honda and Hyundai used the same screw-on base, and Honda has a higher trip point for the bypass valve, which means that if a Honda-spec filter was used on a Hyundai, it wouldn't bypass until a higher pressure than required and the engine would suffer damage from oil starvation.

I'm not sure how any of that applies to cartridge filters though.

I have been using an Amsoiloil filter on an 2000 Sonata for seven years and an 04 for four years with no problems. What I don't like is the small filters that most auto mfg's have gone to.;)

Is the Amsoil filter larger than the Hyundai OEM filter? What are its dimensions?

Actually the filter demensions are the same. I checked them about four years ago when my daughter got the 04. Its possible to use a bigger diameter since the was adquate space. My 02 Grand Caravan uses the EAO96 as opossed to the EAO42 which is the same size as the OEM filter.
