Good evening BITOG folks. This filter and whatever the quick lube put in was off a friends 08' F-150 pickup with 4.6 engine with almost 130,xxx mikes on it. Put some Synpower 5w30 as I have a bunch of it and a FRAM Tough Guard 10575 after seeing Linctex 15k c&p

Enjoy the photos

Looks like the typical Chinese built tank-like (but probably low efficiency) construction, similar to Rural King, etc. We need to send some Purolator people over there to learn how to make a decent filter!

I dumped them myself because the Ultra is priced too cheaply to bother with them smile

Even at the $4.50 clearance price, the Tough Guards are flying off the shelf at local walmart.

I don't think i'm going to be seeing any at the $2.50 range later on....

Add Prime Guard, Premium Guard, Parts Plus and the new(er) Federated oil filter to that list. Look like they could come out of the same factory.
