Does anyone have a cutaway picture of NAPA silver. Was considering this filter for 7500 OCI with PP. Maybe a better filter?

Here ya go. Shows it using a combo valve design. Some here are not fans of that design, I'll just say I prefer separate adbv and metal bypass, either dome or thread end. That being the case, if limited to a Wix, I'd skip the Silver and go for the Gold. But, that's just me.

The Napa Silver is not a bad filter by any means, but I have to agree with Sayjac. The Gold is worth the couple extra bucks. It's construction is absolutely great.

If you're already dropping coin on synthetic oil, you might as well go for the Gold filter too.

But look at me, I use $2 Quaker State's for 8-9,000 OCI's heh
