The Filter is Metallic in its Exterior, but has a 5 Micron Element in its Interior; it is from Nissan, and it Fit Horizontally the Place where Stock Filter Comes.
It´s Inexpensive and You can find it at Parts Stores.
Look it Here: (But Here Appears Overpriced)

also i looked at ebay, the stock universal filter is one micron , i need something like 2-5 micron filtering,more than that will not work good because it's too much for carb.
from where can i find them?

You could also use a Frantz filter which is common on ebay, but your gonna spend a lot of money!!
I tried using a Franz filter about 30 years ago to filter gasoline and found you must drill out the restriction in the filter housing. Also on larger engines they are too restrictive so an additional fuel pump is needed in front of the filter to push the fuel through. They do a great job though if you need really good filtration.

Spectre Fuel Filter @ Autozone
You can clean the filter element and the make replacement elements too. I've used these on lots of subes (using two of them now) and plenty of V8 cars, so I know it'll flow enough. They also make several no universal ones with specific sized metal hose ends.
You can find it on ebay too, search Spectre Fuel Filter

I just did a search on eBay and there's 6 of these fuel filters listed for $5.00 to $43.00. Here's the $5.00 http://cgi.ebay.com/...sspagenameZWDVW

One for your application would look something like this if you want a spin-on:
Or this, which is the older style with a removable cartridge inside (These are rumored to be better at catching particulates because of the larger bowl, which allows the fuel to slow down more, letting more junk drop out):
I found this site that sells the filters, replacement cartidges, and just about anything else you'd need.

Those still look pretty wimpy. If you're dealing with dirty fuel, you need all the surface area you can get.
I agree. When there's a lot of dirt, you need a much larger fuel filter or else you'll be changing filters very often. If you are going to use a small filter, just use the factory Subaru filter and change it frequently.
Also, don't forget there's a filter on the pickup inside your fuel tank. It might be a good idea to clean it ocassionally.
