I picked up these Super Auto oil filters for less than $2 each and they seem to be of good quality (supposed to be equivalent to 57045 filter) I have searched the internet and cannot find any info on these. Has anyone heard of these or know who makes them? The media is 2.75" x 46" and has 49 pleats. I have cut this open for your thoughts, thanks for any input..

That can shape looks familiar, but can't remember where. What is the country of origin on the box? Not a Wix (wrong base plate and center tube), or Fram (Fram does not use louvers or coil springs). It may be a Champ filter (but don't think so), and also don't think it is a Purolator either. Purolator uses leaf springs in most of their filters, not coil springs. If I could see the bypass spring I could tell if it is Purolator. It just may be a generic MiC filter (although those usually have a "Leak Tested" stamp on them, as well as a normal date code, and usually don't use louvers either). shrug

Yeah, the media looks a bit odd.

The use of coil compression spring makes it look similar to the China coo OFs posted here. So without more information, just a generic filter of that origin. And though Puro is mentioned a couple times this thread, never seen a Puro US spin on that uses a coil compression spring. The bypass spring housing looks oddly long in the one pic. It does say "removes 99% of engine oil impurities for superior engine performance" Well, there you go. laugh
