That's an old filter they used to use because they're having supply chain issues with the current part 15208aa15a

Google TSB 02-191-22

I think you might have to do shorter interchanges for oil changes potential according to how they phrased the TSB

I add the whole 5 and haven't noticed an issue.

Picked up a wix 57055 filter today. Not sure if it's going to be any better than the alternative Subaru filter, but at least it's proven and known to have the correct bypass valve pressure. And only $12 🙄
Wix might be pricier but from what I’ve heard they’re very good quality. I cut open a oem subaru filter and it’s very comparable to a fram filter. Lots of cheap components. But it does have great filtration properties and I’ve never seen an issue with the owl subaru filter. I own a dealership and have sold hundreds of subies. Oem is just fine. Wix is probably finer
