If the S stands for Silicon Anti Drain Back Valve as nibyak states it is a better filter. The silicon is a more expensive, higher heat material than the nitrile rubber and withstands more heat cycles (more mileage). This is one of the improvements that allows the filter to last the 7,500-10,000 mile recomended service life.
