    I've seen people running things like that before. I guess it couldn't hurt, but I change my oil every 300 miles ahd keep my engine running like a top. I sure hope there isn't any metal floating around in my oil, never seen any during changes. I say its not really needed and if you really want one just pick up some good magnets and make one. Especially cause they want 60$$ /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif for magnets.

    My theory is pretty simple, if the particles are big enough to float around, they shoulda been captured by the filter to begin with. Could it hurt? Probably not.Though it could acutally begin to magnetically charge some of the parts of the engine/hoses connected, which would then make the metal particles not want to go to the filter. Depends on how strong the field is.
