Is anyone using this stuff?

Hi There,
Found this one on Jegs:
FilterMAG
http://www.jegs.com/i/FilterMAG/384/SS365/10002/-1

Does it provide any real benefit? Looks like it is worth to try but I am curious if it actually does anything from what is being promoted.

Is anyone using this?

Thanks and sorry for the sort of dumb question

52$ just for a magnet seems pretty pricey. I also don't think these things do anything either but I'm defiantly not an expert in these kind of things.

i think the magnetic drain plug would be more beneficial personally.

I run one on my rock crawler, we put big flat magnets on our oil pans for our drag race cars.

I don't know, and of course could be all wrong about this. But, from what I think I know about magnets and metal, is that prolonged exposure to a magnet causes metal, or most metals, to become magnetized? If this is true, and these magnetized particles somehow got through the filtration system, wouldn't that lend them to stick to things like bearings and journals?

I don't know, if or how it would happen, but it was just a thought I had.

I've used them for years and years on all high end projects. They really work. I have cut several filters apart to verify the advertisements and real world function. And just like the magnetic drain plugs, the definitely pull out and hold particles that would otherwise go back into the oil system. I currently have them on my Twin Turbo Camaro. I use twin auxiliary oil filters and each filter has magnets on them. Of course, I am using a different brand but they all work the same. Anytime you can remove dirt or metal particulates from the circulating oil, you are at a tremendous advantage of extending engine life. Same applies to automatic transmissions. Most all manufacturers install magnets in the oil pan to do the same function and if you have ever done a tranny oil/filter change, you can see how much particulate the magnet holds that would otherwise be circulated in the transmission.

Well at least its not a magnet to align the molecules of gas into a more linear fashion with a ring magnet for the fuel line..LOL Yup kind of spendy compared to my magnetic drain plug from GM I bought, and a magnet around the filter could be good yet I would just use the stock from a sign shop if that worried about particulates.

I have this and a magnetic drain plug, as they were recommended to me after an engine rebuild. I'll let you know what I find in my oil filter after the next oil change.

Just out of curiosity, what is the advantage of dual oil filters? More flow in parallel?
