Oh I see. Does it really do anything? Why not just let the filter do it's job?

Wouldn't that possibly keep particles from being caught by the filter and possibly cause a build up along the walls? I would think that defeats the purpose of the filter. Just my $0.02

That's exactly what I was thinking, it would magnetize the entire filter (anything that is metal anyway...

We're on the same sheet of music, which for you is not a good thing, cuz I'm an idiot
I have often seen magnetic tips on the oil pan drain plug, for obvious reasons.

I've never heard of this thing and I've never heard of anything related to this concept.

Does anyone have any factual documentation on this matter? Video? Links?

HAHA that was funny!

I've heard of these before (just didn't know what they were called) but have never heard anything good or bad about them...

The drain plug magnets work, there's always a little bit of "stuff" captured by them when I change oil/trans fluid in any of my vehicles (...man you should see what gets caught on the drain plug magnet in the trans of my buell....it's amazing it even shifts haha...stupid harely engineers...).

OKAY!!!!! This subject is driving me nuts. I do not know which direction the oil enters the filter and which direction it exits the filter. With that said, please everyone, bare with me and my ignorance. (And before you smart @$$es pipe-in, I know it goes in through the top and exits through the top. )

1) If the dirty oil enters the filter canister through the outer ports, running along the outer side wall, wouldn't the metal particles stick to the side walls and build up. Possibly build up too much in one area too close to one point near the actual filter portion?

2) If the oil enters the oil filter canister through the center and filters outward, through the filter screen, to the outer side walls, and back up through the outer port holes, then would the pull of a magnet possibly ruin the integrity of the oil filter by pulling the metal particles through the filter?

3) If someone feels compelled to attach a magnet to their oil filter to catch metal particles, does that mean he/she has a serious metal shaving issue or does it mean he/she is just as obsessed as the Ram fanatics that replaces their factory parts or installs additional parts such as:
-factory lights with LED's because the factory's are not good enough?
-factory exhaust because they're not cool, loud, deep, or throaty enough?
-splash guards because the fender wells don't protect enough and it looks cool?
-CAI because drop-ins or factory is not good enough?
-...and so on and so on....

4) Am I thinking too much in to this since I plan on doing all those things mentioned above minus the filter mag (no offense to the filter mag users out there)?
