did an OC on 2010 explorer 4L sohc V6. UOA forthcoming. in service 10.5 months/ 11k miles. oil was amsoil ATM 10w30. 70% highway.









as has been discussed before, this is how the 2 media ends are joined. notice the glob of sealant/ epoxy used at the left. i tried to tear the pleats apart but it was rigid. you can start to see the wire backing.

nice to see that, thanks for posting. have you cut open any other brands of filters for this explorer? how does the quality of construction compare to other brands if you have?
