That is a fairly nasty looking filter. Which Fram line is it? Tha AC Delco fitlers from the Silverado are reputed to be a good fit.
Agreed. That looks nothing like the Fram air filters I've used.....
Same here. Two of the cars I maintain both use rigid frame AF's, both Hondas. Including the one pictured in this thread
the quality is just fine. As for the pic previously posted, I recently looked at a Fram EG CA8756 iirc for a 5.3L Tahoe the with a similar design to the one in the pic, and it appeared to be quite well made. I suppose there are exceptions, and that's why it's always good to inspect the any filter prior to purchase. As I said though, very satisfied with the Fram Extra Guard AF's for my applications.
