If you intend to do frequent oil changes(2000 miles or less) so as to keep built-up wear particles in the oil to a minimum, there is no problem using a race filter. They just aren't intended to use for 10,000 miles change intervals.

The race filter doesn't filter as fine a particles out, as a race engine theory is full volume of slightly dirty oil is better than too little oil because of a restrictive filter.
