Has anyone had experience with these, I am looking for a good flowing, and efficient filter for my remote adapter. It seems with filters that the more filtering the less flow and vice versa, and what suits a standard road car may have limitations in a high hp application like mine!

Filters - Pure Power! EHP® Lifetime Oil Filter CLEANABLE & REUSABLE (For Racing Applications) - PurePower!, Inc. (http://www.gopurepower.com/store/item.asp?cmd=dsplyItem&itemKey=664)

System 1 Performance Oil Filters (http://www.system1filters.com/oil_filters.htm)
I have a System 1 with 45 micron but I think these are more suitable for racing and race engines that are pulled down regularly, the purepower has a similar element filter, Purepower claims their filter takes out as low as 5-10 microns!

Something is telling me to go with a high performance full flow paper or similar element proven type like a Wix Racing filter 28gpm and 61micron filtering.

K&N gold oil filter which still has 16-20gpm flow rate, and filters down to 10-20micron bit less flow than the Wix , another point I am running a dry sump system with lots of plumbing where the flow of a standard filter wouldnt really cut the mustard for fast road and race.

One of the best engine builders in the 'states swears by Moroso Racing oil filters. And he uses them on siome extremely high dollar engines.

NB - will need frequent (like every 2000 mile) oil changes. But you would do no less on a Cobra, would you?

I reckon 2000 miles would be a lot for this Cobra. Will give Moroso a look!
