I'm skeeeered, too.
The statement they make concerning the lack of an anti-drainback valve skeeers me, because I have evidence to the contrary (car related). The VW diesel engines need an anti-drainback valve in the filter, and the recommended filters for those engines all have one. I had a situation in which the oil pressure light consistently stayed on for a second or two after start-up (after sitting overnight). I thought it was a sign of a tired engine (300,000+ kilometers). Next oil change, new oil filter, problem went away and has never happened again. I still have the car in question. The only explanation I have is that particular filter had a problem with its anti-drainback valve. Nothing else changed.
If they claim that an anti-drainback valve doesn't do anything ... I'm skeeeeered.
Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!
