How old are these frams?

They're basically new. I bought a bunch of those on Rock Auto and am currently using one on my Camaro in my signature. They are just the jobber version of the Ultra.

How much money could there possibly be in counterfeiting run-of-the-mill oil filters AND their boxes? I could see placing white overlay stickers featuring a "better brand" onto cheap white jobber's filters.

It's overstock or outdated stock from a shop. It's basically the jober version of the fram ultra. Built inside the same way and has the same silly combo leaf spring/bypass valve gadget.

Sounds like a recurring bash statement you keep making.

Even though it's just an Ultra, I like the color. Before being properly educated by BITOG, it would have made the filter more appealing. Fram should go with this design across the board IMO.

I agree, too bad Rock only has one that might fit but it lacks a bypass valve... so it's a real full flow filter.

I looked on fleabay... $12 cad per filter but $25 shipping... blows up the deal. Crumbs...
