Default FilterMag..pretty nifty

thought some of u guys might be interested in this lil thing. im sure some of u have heard of the lil magnetic drain plugs that pick up lil metalic shavings from the engine, this is basically the same thing but it wraps around ur oil filter and works a hell of a lot better.

their website

In order for FilterMAG™ to remove minute steel particles from the oil system, its magnets must have enough energy to hold incredibly fine particles against the velocity of the oil flow. FilterMAG™'s patented design employs a focused magnetic force field, that amplifies its incredibly powerful Neodymium magnets, to generate the immense force needed to forcibly remove tiny particles below 20-micron from the oil flow; and retain increasingly smaller particles -- as small as 2-microns -- against the pressure of oil flow velocity.

Another good article

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING: Removing metallic particles as small as two microns is absolutely amazing, considering table salt is 100 microns, human hair is 75 microns, your average dust particle is 50 microns and a measly red blood cell is six microns. The FilterMag is impressive. Keep in mind, that as the particles become increasingly smaller, the magnetism required to attract it must be increasingly stronger. For example, the best a magnetic drain plug in your oil pan can do is 100 microns, the size of table salt. With the FilterMag, we're talking a two micron red blood cell.
