    Found this online in case some needs to read it.

    Filter media quality plays a part in sizing assemblies for two reasons: Finer filtration (i.e., lower micron rating), is more restrictive to flow because of the smaller gaps in the media, which are required to trap smaller particles. Also, the quality of the filter media plays a part because premium synthetic depth-media has a higher dirt holding capacity and will take longer to clog than cheap paper or cellulose media. If you are unsure of the variables when you are applying or purchasing a new filter assembly, it is advised to oversize the element and to use a high-quality medium.

    Just buy the eXmark filters.

    You run syn in eXmark hydros and really only need to change every 500hrs regardless of time despite what they tell you about eXmark Hydro oil.

    if you're running a Big Mid Mount and it gets Allot of Steep Hills you may want to run the eXmark oil, otherwise Mobil 1 and 500 hrs is fine.
