The Denso box posted by Duck Ryder is as properly noted for the current China coo Denso FTF which came out of the box in his post. And all information previously covered by Hootbro and 92saturnsls and linked. Previous FTF was 'not' made in China, and it used red silicone adbv as 92saturn showed. Duck Ryder has another Denso FTF which show 2015 box date and also says "reliable'" not silicone. Odd not mentioned in the defense, is the current Denso website element type is also inaccurate for current FTF metal endcap type too. _Denso_150-2006__-_V]https://www.bo...
So ~2014-2105 would also be accurate for when member rustypigeon first posted the change on this subforum when FTF part number and coo change occurred. That thread also linked for reference and confirmation purposes. https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru... 39/re-denso-oil-filters-new-part-numbers
As Hootbro said in Duck Ryder thread referring to adbv and old, non updated Denso FTF oil filter info "It is not silicone anymore. That is old ad copy that Denso has not changed. They even dropped the silcone ADBV from their boxes." That is accurate from one who used both FTF filters. Along with 92saturnsls, two poster who used both FTF made filters. Considering their personal knowledge, until proven otherwise I agree with them.
