We have installed many of these, they are an excellent upgrade for the car. Along with about a 30% finer filter media, the spin on filter offers "full flow" filtration (read no by pass) at all times.

Been running one for 20k miles with stable oil with pressure and no problems to date.

Only draw back...

Its a pain in the a$$ to open up the canister to inspect the filter for metal particles.

Not a problem with the correct tool, but not everyone has one.

This one is by Proform, and my personal favorite because all of the cutting wheels and bearings are replaceable:

JFP, I have seen the LN spin on adapter and it does look well made. I know Porsche increased the size of the filter with the 977.2. Can you use a larger filter (surface area) with the LN adapter? Is this really worth the money and why. I heard the no by pass part but I though if you changed the filter regularly you would never go on bypass. Buying a filter cutter all hinges on this. You can get 5-6 oil analyses for the price of this stuff combined and it does give you a lot more information about the car than examining your oil filter. I suppose in a perfect world we would do both.

The bypass valve in the stock cannister housing is a rather cheap device that gets tired over time and really should be replaced as it tends to open more frequently with age, often when it is not even needed.

You can go to a longer filter as the LN adaptor is using a standard GM oil filter (specifically for the Corvette), but with the spin on's media area, and the finer pore size of the filter media, it really has not been needed, even on heavily tracked cars. As we run UOA's on most of our customer's cars, many with the LN adaptor, and to date have not seen any negatives from the filter size. You also need to watch how long a filter you choose as it will be hanging out under the car.

Now that is a pretty picture..... "Suicidal Porsche driver runs over a rabbit at 120 miles per hour, knocks off his oil filter and blows up his engine. Every other vehicle coming round the bend slides on the massive oil slick and crashes into grandma Smith's barn. It is most definitely , "Time for tea."

Well, considering that we have had customers impact crack the OEM plastic filter housing, it ain't far from the truth.

I recently purchased a spin-on oil filter adapter from Pelican Parts for my 2007 Carrera.  What would be the best filter to use?  I'm located in Ottawa, Canada and have access to NAPA and Amazon.  All suggestions welcome!

 

Thanks,

Andry

We prefer the Wix/NAPA Gold 51042 filter, or the 51042XP with synthetic filter media.  Both are found at many auto parts stores as well as online.

I installed the spin-on adapter on my 2005 997.1 C2S last year and have had no issues. Recommended for several good reasons and also easier to replace. My shop cuts it open to inspect for shavings each time. I use the Napa Gold 1042 filter recommended by LN.
