I just learned about the plastic baffle found in some and not others, basically a section of plastic tube in the lower section of the inside of the filter, I believe it does not go all the way to the bottom. They say this is to keep some oil in the filter after shutdown to keep some oil ready to pump up the lifters. I don't know if anyone makes a filter without it.
