Proof? The first manufacturer to make a filter with a thread end bypass and a wire-backed micro-glass media will get my business. I know Champion Labs can do it, as I believe they made both the Ford Racing 820S and the Amsoil EaO. Ford Racing has the thread end bypass and Amsoil has the wire-backed micro-glass media. Now they just need to put them together. I'm really surprised the EaO11 didn't get the Ford Racing base plate and bypass valve. Pretty crazy, IMO. I'm also surprised Ford Racing doesn't upgrade to the micro-glass media.
