This filter and Maxlife 5w30 blend was off my co workers 2011 Chevy Silverado 4x4 truck with the 4.3 v-6 engine.

I've posted a few of his used oil filters before. Doesn't look pretty I say but it's his truck and he works
It hard, or uses it a lot. Put some Maxlife Synthetic 5w30 and a FRAM ULTRA on. Truck has almost 90k on it

Rather nasty.
Is Maxlife your new squeeze?
Thanks

WOW!! If that was my engine I would be freaking out and doing weekly oil changes or look for another car. That filter trapped a lot of gunk...never saw one like this, nasty! I love looking at all your CP, thank you.

The filter looks dirty is all i can see that doesnt look good. Personally without a UOA and if that were my truck id change filter and oil at maybe 4000 miles and check again to see how it looks.

Hopefully the ultra and syn clean it up a bit and contain the dirt.

You're very welcome sir smile

Co worker was on vacation( he's a oil changer at my work) for 2 weeks. Told me he did "a lot of work" on the truck so....hopefully next oil change filter will look better. 6,500 miles is what GM owners manual for this truck says also.

I'm sure the exact ingredients are proprietary, but Jay from Fram provided some details here:

Fram makes good stuff, but the High Mileage filter line was a bad idea.

From what Motorking said in the link a couple of posts above, it seems to have benefits for certain use applications.
