Ran this after replacing the head gasket on the turbo car last December. It's one of the Purolator cheese grater filters. No tears ran fine all winter until today. Used a hacksaw, no tears and the adbv held up for 6 mos. First for a Purolator on my car. It's fresh so there is some pooled oil at the bottom.

Last check (2 weeks ago) AZ STP's here are still Champ/(Fram/Rank) made. That is recent stock and no sign at all of Puro made STPs in any application. The STP3614 locally still an ecore.

No tears, no drama here. That's good.

Thanks for pics.

Looks pretty good for an el cheapo filter if you ask me.

louvers... Not my favorite although it seems to help the media from not tearing by (in my opinion) slowing down the oil flow.. Im sure that comment will bring some other beliefs..


Check To See That The Oil Jugs You Buy Have The Exact Amount Of Oil In Them And Have An Inner Seal Under The Cap. I Use Mobil 1 And Fram Ultra Filters

Slowing down the oil flow through the louvers would INCREASE stress on the media, not decrease it. Although the whole thing is a moot point anyway.

A reduction of flow rate through a fixed opening means the flow rate through that opening has been decreased and 'slowed down'.

What a whole bunch of louvers does is help more evenly distribute the oil flow through the media. That in turn helps reduce concentrated areas of higher flow rate, which helps reduce the stress on the media in those locations.

If there were only two large holes in the center tube, then those two large holes would have to flow all the oil volume and it would also increase the stress on the media at those points because the flow volume per hole would be large. Evenly distributing all the flow through hundreds of smaller holes or louvers eliminates localized stress on the media due to concentrated high flow areas.

To whom it may concern wink2

Regarding louvered center tubes, please refer to this response for what a louvered design actually does.

Thank you.
