I am posting this for member FordBroncoVWJeta and he will answer any questions about the vehicle, conditions, oil used, length of run, etc. He informed me the dents happened on removal and it was packed well so no damage there.

I created a video so that everyone could see how it was opened. While I did have a little trouble with the cutter, it opened just fine. However, the first thing that I noticed when I unpacked the filter was the ziploc bag (photo below) was coated with oil. At first, I thought perhaps the filter had some residual oil in it, but unfortunately, the ADBV was cut through in at least 3 places. The reason for this (and I assume is the case with the other examples of this) is the base plate has some incredibly sharp edges left from the drilling process. You can see them in the photos, I tried to zoom in a bit. The only other comment I have about the baseplate is it is very thick and sturdy. Otherwise, the media was fine with no tears and no other issues were noted.

I will keep the filter for a bit before recycling in case there are other photos needed.

Date Code:

F = Fayetteville Plant
11 = Month (November)
G = Year (2015)
12 = Day of Month
B = Line
1 = Shift

Garbage manufacturing and drilling practices I should have stated. These will NOT go on any of my friends or families vehicles ever!

I am going to remain an objective party here (since I did the cutting), but at first glance, it would **seem** that Purolator **may** have fixed the media issue, but **perhaps** they now have an issue with the production drilling of the base plates. **Maybe** this is an isolated incident and since it could be a filter from the initial run of Boss filters, **perhaps** it has been rectified. It **may** be they do not even know about it. shrug

Looks fine to me except for the cut ADBV. How is ADBV getting cut? Sharp edges?

The new Boss I cut open did not have cuts on the ADBV. Who knows if it had been run for X amount of miles it could have been cut too.

While putting the filter and tools away, I found that FordBroncoVWJeta had placed a note in the box I had missed with the particulars of the run:

Start of run = 04.04.2016
End of run = 06.16.2016
OCI = 5,746 miles
Oil = Valvoline SynPower 5W-40
Driving Style = Highway and Interstate usually between 65 and 80 MPH

Yes; zoom in on the base plate holes and you can see the edges left from the drilling process.

You know what it is ? Those inlet holes have such sharp burrs, they're cutting into the ADBV !

Purolator can't get anything right !

Don't get too carried away with ADBV and it being a Purolator. I took a Fram Tough Guard off last year and it had a slice in the ADBV too.

I'll see if I can find the pics and post them.

Maybe Purolator is making these on their Ginsu knife line.

From the video, it looked like the pleats were straight and well placed, and the louvers looked pretty wide open.

And they probably have no idea what's going on. The consumer will have to tell them, but they probably won't believe the consumer.
