Ever wondered how long your engine or transmission build will last? Engine and driveline life depend largely on proper inspection and assembly to begin with, plus how well each is maintained over its service life. Proper service includes regular check-ups and tuning along with consistent fluid and filter changes. But, there’s even more. As moving hard parts wear, they tend to shed certain amounts of ferrous metal, especially during start-up before a good oil wedge is established.

Ferrous metal particles (iron) become suspended in the oil doing a certain amount of engine damage as they move along and settle. They get trapped in between moving parts, often impregnating themselves into piston skirts, cylinder walls crank and cam journals and bearing surfaces causing additional wear and tear. Magnetic filtration enables your Mustang’s oiling system to trap ferrous metal particles from the oil, thereby eliminating these damaging particles from circulation and extending your engine’s life.

Check out this evidence of how well FilterMag works. This is one oil change cycle and look at the metal deposits trapped where the FilterMag was positioned. Imagine how much metal goes unchecked without it.

FilterMag for Transmissions

This is the FilterMag magnet for automatic transmissions. Transmissions of course can also be damaged by metal particles in their fluid. Install this guy on your C4, C6, FMX, AOD, AODE, 4R70W, or 5R55W and it will trap ferrous metals at the sump well away from vulnerable transmission parts. Install FilterMag at the rear corner well away from the valve body for best results.
