    1) I didn't know changing OEM oil filter was hard to do.
    2) Two filters isn't twice as good. PSI restriction and air pockets are twice as likely.
    3) All spin-on oil are steel. Thus can cause rust or rust stains when exposed to salt.

    Good point about rust. but would take some time to rust. I am a fan of 25 hour oil change intervals and wd-40 after use spray down but not everyone is after use clean up regiment

    Agreed.

    Another issue with this setup, it would make a mess when you spin off the oil filter (pointing down). Even if it had an anti-drain valve, oil still collects in middle section and will make a freaking mess.

    ps. Not that it matters because it could be cross-referenced. But you couldn't pay me to use a Fram oil filter on anything. Wix FTW!

    It looks like it will eliminate the oem filter.

    I see no benefit to this...... unless you wanna make a complete mess in your hull when changing the filter.

    I don't see any benefit to this set up. Nothing really gained over the oem filter arrangement.

    I ran across this during a search for a automotive oil remote system part and the company sells this. Never seen one before and it interested myself and thought I would share it. I never thought the seadoo filtering system was bad just thought about running a dual remote set up for more filtering.
