this was $12.49 from my local Napa. They had to order it, but had it the next day.

Nice solid construction. unless the price comes down or the efficiency beats fram XG, I will probably stick to XG for around $8 at WM.

The media is nice, feels like a thick cotton or felt.

I noticed a 61515 on the base. maybe this will be the number under the Wix brand name?

ENJOY!

Thanks for your hard work, out of pocket expense and great post. Looks like a very good filter. Who knows, they may have a special on these in the near future to get people to try them out.

Looks awesome but unless I'm doing super extended intervals I'll pass for $12.49.

Looks good, don't think it's an Amsoil replica like some think. But for the price I think I'll stick with FRAM XG's

Amsoil didn't make or design their filter.


Oh, I thought someone said it was, my bad smile

Looks great, but for the price, I'm happy with my Napa Golds.

Looks good, can't wait to try one out. Seems like an average price for this type of filter. I get my RP oil filters from Summit Racing for $11.99.

Texan,

Looks like a very solid filter--nice internals and filter media. From a price and quality standpoint how do they compare with PureOnes? Any thoughts there?

I only don't care for the bypass valve location:

Why run the bypassing oil over the dirty filter surface, when the Motorcraft bypass valve is located at the input (base) end of the can? Yet most high end filters seem to have the dome end bypass. Maybe it's not an issue? shrug
