that looks much better than i expected for a cardboard filter i guess they improved it a little because so many people cut them open and expose oil filters.

I'm going to mention the same product twice in one day on BITOG - Accusump. Overcome your cold start worries, if you have them, in one fell swoop freeing you up to worry about other problems.

I always change my filter every other change not to save money on filters but to eliminate one more dry start.
