Just as a followup to Derek's post, I can confirm that the current version 
of ETKA has superceded all I-5 filters to the same part number as the
1.8Toil filter. I don't have the number handy, otherwise I'd post the
number here.
 BTW, the oil filter for the VW 2.0L engine is also the same. I think this 
was done for ease of stocking parts, not for performance, as my mechanic has 
told me repeatedly that the bigger black "turbo" labeled filters for the 10v 
turbo were definitely different from the other filters- maybe the 
anti-drainback valve was better or something? He mentioned that the car 
would suffer from lifter tick with the non-"turbo" filter.
