Looking for Purolator Tech oil filter pics.

Is anyone currently running a TECH filter on anything they have or seen them available? I was running filter searches on amazon/ebay etc. and I found they sell them in cases of 12 for not a bad price and I would be interested to try them out. Either looking for pics here or I might buy a few and run 2 and cut open a new one to see what the media is like and then cut the used ones open later. I have seen some purolators cut open lately and seems they might be improving or at least tightening the pleats together etc. I'm gonna try to get away from the Motorcrafts 820s because they have been problematic for awhile. I have some pro-selects etc right now but I'd like to get away from the combo valve. I know there is a napa filter sale coming up soon so I will look into that as well. Just nice to have options. I'm always looking for different filter options.

The Tech is just a classic that is sold to jobbers, and the Tech line may be consolidated. There is no reason to use a Tech over a red can.

Motorcrafts are made by Purolator. Both have had some issues. The Purolator Tech might be OK, but most likely the same basic media as the base Purolator filter.

Here's what I know. As Tech name implies, Puro jobber tier filter line. The one FordBronco posted was only few months ago, I'd have reason to expect they are much different now. According to Puro either a tad below or similar to retail Red classic line. There was also a Puro made ProTec filter posted by 53' here around same time as last Tech filter. Again, expect it similar to or same as topic. That said, in my observation if you're looking for an endorsement of purchase of topic filter, generally speaking unlikely to find it this subforum.
