Good rainy afternoon BITOG wink

Looks quite similar to the Prime Guard line of oil filters.
Seems to have held up well.
Do they leak test each one? With air?

When I first saw "made in China" on the shell, I thought 'uh oh ". But it looks like very good filter and I'd use it without hesitation. Fine work car51 and thanks for the c+p!

It's constructed well, but any guess on efficiency?
50% at 40 microns?

No one knows......

Odd that the spring wasn't centered.

My guess is me messing with it while cutting it open moved the spring somewhat

Once again a $2 Chinese filter has perfectly even pleats....some American made 'premium' filters could learn something from them...

PS: I'd use those filters without hesitation....

Same for most OEM, they do not publish specs, and some of the one's that have are not that stellar (flow over filtration as some say).
