SEMI_287, out of curiosity what is the price of a Gold in your area? I've had to pay almost that much for a Wix or Gold locally.



About
$6 and some change with tax.

According to NAPA Online, they are now in stock in my closest (central Iowa) store, but I haven't tried to buy one yet.

Yep same here river i checked my applications and $12.69 there available here in MI,cool going to have grab a few!

wish we knew the efficiency specs may have to call WIX,hope these filters are on par with the RP and StrataPore filters there already little bit cheaper so that's a plus and with NAPA's filter sale in the spring may even be a better deal.

anybody dig up some efficiency's post them up.

Turns out NAPA Online was wrong. The store hasn't seen them yet. The warehouse doesn't have any yet either.

I know ours knows nothing of them yet either. In fact they didn't know they existed until I said something...

Ok here's the scoop. This filter will be a direct competition to Amsoil Ea line. I saw one cut apart today and they are identical. Full synthetic wire backed medium, silicone anti-drainback valve, nitrile gasket, coil spring, and high flow area (when applicable). Napa will be offering 3 lines now, all made by Wix. Platinum, Gold (regular re-packaged Wix) and a Silver line which compares to fram and a few others to name a few. They will still offer their [censored], leaky, proselect. (not made by Wix) and the NASCAR line is discontinued.

PS I work at Napa.

How does this and the Amsoil filter stack up to the Royal Purple oil filter which is guaranteed for 12,000 mile OCI.

If these are the same as the Amsoil and Royal Purple you might as well go with those and pass on this one. I got one of each for $12.00. Saved a $1.49 over the napa platinum oil filter.
