Agreed. That looks nothing like the Fram air filters I've used.....

Same here. Two of the cars I maintain both use rigid frame AF's, both Hondas. Including the one pictured in this thread the quality is just fine. As for the pic previously posted, I recently looked at a Fram EG CA8756 iirc for a 5.3L Tahoe the with a similar design to the one in the pic, and it appeared to be quite well made. I suppose there are exceptions, and that's why it's always good to inspect the any filter prior to purchase. As I said though, very satisfied with the Fram Extra Guard AF's for my applications.

I've used quite a few purolators, still do.

i've used fram as well but i got away from them.

I guess like any other company you'll have a few bad filters here and there.

I once saw a fram conical style filter that the plastic end fell off and air was just bypassing the filter all together.

For air filters I always go with OE. Toyota's Denso filter has an excellent filtering media, and I use the A-1618C in my 5.3L C1500 which has been tested to be an excellent filter.

What's interesting about the Silverado truck application that it calls for 3 different filters. I use the A-1618C filter for the Duramax engine. It's a different part# for the gassers.
