Wix touts the thread end bypass...which is usually preferred all other things being equal, "to prevent oil from washing across the dirty element" when it is open. Not a huge deal, IMO, but for $12+ I want all the best features. I wonder why they didn't go forward with the regular Wix/NG design in this regard.

Probably because they already were tooled up for Donaldson & Fleetgaurd, and talked WIX/NG to just use the same basic element and design for their product also. The bypass design looks the same on the Donaldson/Fleetgaurd elements also.

When I shop NAPA
1} I check to see if the product is made in China if so I usually refuse to buy it
2} I ask for a discount and if I do not get it I shop elsewhere,,,ask for the discount after all the parts are on the counter. Refuse the order if a discount is not given.

Looks to be top tier. P-1's are a good filter but clearly this looks like 2 steps above.

Makes sense. I will try one if we ever get them here in Podunk.

Thanx for the pics and the $$!

I'll have to see if I can get a price on these up here. I've paid $10+ for a Gold, XGs $13, M1s $15 and K&Ns are $16. Could be scary if you guys are saying they are almost twice the price of a Gold! Good looking filter though.

Yes, this is the same filter as a Wix 5515 and a Carquest 85515. I just put one on my 91 Dynasty today. Paper/Glass media. Love it.

These filters can be used for 2-3 OCI no problem ,well worth the price for a great filtering/flowing filter.

i'm definitely stocking up on these filters,may just be my "new" regular stock.

How many miles you plan to drive for each interval to leave this on for 3 of them?
