For our friend Adam (car 51)-I have fair number of these, so this is my minor contribution. Date code is A23243, was sealed in it's shiny (fairly) new box. Now, everybody stay safe out there!

Fixing to mount one of these to my 2.0L Escape on the next OCI. I can't tell from the pic--is that ADBV silicone?

https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/foru...am-tg-3600-virgin-filter-cut-open#UNREAD I was confused by all the extra spaces, I had to take them out! crazy Normally I get these from eBay for $24-25 a 6 pack, so it's more like 4/10ths of a sawbuck. Adam/car 51 spends a LOT of money on filters for here, and, yes, I know what they look like, I've used enough of them (for up to 20,000 miles. The body will rust off the xB before I could possibly use all the ones I have.

Thanks for the cut. Just reinforces how good these filters are. I've got XG's on both my 08 Burb and my son's 10 Silverado. smile

Thanks for the c&p, that filter looks great! I thought XG's were supposed to have the wire mesh / screen on the outside of the media? Did this change?

No, the mesh is on the inside, visible through the holes in center tube between the media & tube. Last time I tried to get the media out of an Ultra, I almost needed stitches from all the cuts on my hands!

Date code says it was made the 324th day of 2012. Strange. Bought off of eBay?

Might be, it doesn't even say 15,000miles on the box, must have been an early production Ultra

Bullwinkle: I would use these in my Escape if I found them for $24 or $25 for 6 of them. If you see them for that price again on e-bay...let us know. Thanks
