Removed this filter not long after I bought my civic. Unknown OCI with Castrol GTX.

Looks fine, either the OCI was short or your engine is pretty clean.

As always, thanks for cutting and posting!

Doesn't look too bad, even if it does have cardboard end caps. Definitely appears to be better quality media than the orange cans.

I don't mind the TGs at all. This one certainly looks ok.

I remember someone else posting some pics of their TG that didn't look like it was very well constructed. But I'm glad to see that based on these pics it may have just been an anomaly. I have a TG waiting in the wings although it may be a few years before I get to it but good to know it should do just fine.
