I don't know if this has been mentioned before, but I found this website that has a lot of oil filters ripped apart and studied with full write-ups. May be worth a sticky!

I thought I had seen something similar before. I didn't mean to repost, but thanks for pointing it out MD.

It wasn't my intention to make you think it's a repost.

I think your link is the updated version of Louse's thread. Notice the 2 links are different but the content is identical.

some things on the internet get recycled.

I've used the Denso First Time fit filters before. They have good construction with pre-lubed gasket and silicon ADB valve. Here is something many RSX (as well as integra) owners may find informative. The oversize filters that are refered too in the site are the original sized filters that are specified for 3rd gen intergras and earlier. Otherwise, these filters are the smaller size specified for the RSX as well as many other newer hondas. However, I believe it is safe to assume if the quality is lacking for one part number, then there is a high chance that quality may not be much different for other part numbers.

Who is using the smaller RSX filter on older hondas that specify the larger filter?

The link is not to imply that one can swap filter part numbers between eachother even though they may physically fit another vehicle they are not specified for. I want everyone to see that the quality between filter brands can vary greatly. Look at the Bosch filter with its uneven pleat distribution. These Bosch filters go for over $4.00 at the local parts store. The Nippon filters look a lot better quality wise an are cheaper than the bosch. The Wix filter (aka Napa Gold) is about the same price as a bosch and in my opinion is a much better filter I would feel more comfortable going the distance of 7,000 miles between oil changes per the manual using a $2 Nippon filter over a $4 Bosh, Fram, STP, AC Delco any day.Direct Link to RSX filter comparo

I've come to a point where it doesn't matter anymore unless you are picky or are seriously into something else.

Do the proper oil change intervals and it shouldn't really matter. Going on 7k miles for an oil change is somewhat stupid IMO, but my opinion. The best oil and filter is fresh oil and a fresh oil filter.

after the Spoon head showed that he used that clamp around the oil filter on a Best Motoring video years back, a lot of people had been asking whether it's better to run the smaller volume oil filters with less filter expansion during sustained high rpm runs and the heat generated.

the question really is whether you want a large oil filter to act as a sump reserve for oil or a small filter and have most of thevolume that would go into the filter during circulation back into the system.

I haven't really sorted out whether a small volume filter or large volume filter (what the difference in oil volume sumped in the filter itself) makes a difference one way or the other.

Even the HAMP filters come in 2 sizes for the Gen 3's anyway. I haven't investigated the Gen 4's or Gen 2's filters for differences in sizing for HAMP.
