Have you had any issues with them?
And where do you get them for $8.00? that's a touch cheaper than Nissan's $30+.
thanks
How long does your oil light stay on for with Nissan filters ?

Matter of seconds. I start and let idle before getting in the car without revving too. the light goes out faster with the Nissan ones than a couple of I think it was Cooper (sort of light blue color) filters the mechanic used once. They were not good at all, I guess they were cheap.
I think Donaldson maybe industrial? so might be good to use, and for $8 I'd be willing to try. I haven't tried Ryco but they seem to be a bit confusing on which to use (Z1s are no good read in some link on here but others swear by them?), and how good they are from looking at threads on here.

15psi is the maximum pressure difference you would want to see across a oil filter!
The factory bypass likely opens at this aswell if not before.
If a ryco z9 bypasses at 15psi pressure differential thats not going to cause a issue

Does anybody KNOW what pressure the factory filter bypass opens at? I've never been able to find an answer.

I order them from Westrac. I get 12 at a time. Never had any issues.

When you say they open before, is that a good thing? This information is all very new to me and not sure if I am worrying about nothing?

How would you find out these figures on any filter, would they be on the box they come in? or elsewhere?

Not sure what the spec is on the TD42 it would be in the OEM specification facory service manual, for example a caterpillar C15 the filter bypass is set at 25psi

Opening to soon is no good, honestly dont know what the factory bypass is set at. I change my filters every 5000km maximum so im confident im never getting to the point that the z9 is bypassing in normall operation...if i was a bit slack in changing filters or did em every 10k insted of 5k then i would stay with the Z503 filters.
