A few weeks back, I was stumbling around Ebay looking at filters for my Frontier and came across this IAP IC-106CS filter that was advertised for $1.88 shipped and peaked my interest because shipping would have to be more than the cost of the filter and wanted to see what one could get.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/IAP-Oil-Filter-IC-106CS-for-Honda/112302138156

Arrived out within the week by USPS First Class out of California and below is pictures of the filter before and after being cut open. Observations show it to have a prelubed gasket under the cellophane covering. The bypass valve is of a weird design I have never seen before and is some kind of metallic poppet plate design. Media was tight with about 60 pleats and measure apporx. 250 sq in of media. Center tube was much like a E-Core but with a two piece plastic ring design. Media had a fiber end cap but was resin impregnated and could not be peeled off by hand. ADBV is nitrle and was very supple but also on the thin side.

Interesting looking filter. And for under $2, not bad.
Now if we only knew the actual efficiency.

Taiwan can make some really high quality machine parts.
I see a few issues here I'm not in love with but I see some things that are impressive too.
Thanks for the great pictures

The endcaps look a lot tougher than the ones on a Fram.

It sort of looks like a cartridge filter though that they just went ahead and built a canister for so they could use the same media for cartridge and spin-on.

Yeah, the fiber end caps have some stiff resin impregnation. Attempted to see if it pulled off easily and it would not without tearing the attached media off at the base.

Construction looks decent. Not sure about the bypass valve. Hard to tell how it works by looking at the photos.

I went to the website and I have to say:

It's one of a dying breed of foreign released sites where the translation budget wasn't too high.
It's a limited, Asian truck catalog first with a few car items interspersed.
Very few oil filters offered which have automotive applications.
It is always fun to see the names of models which are unavailable here.

Hey, the one oil filter efficiency I saw was stated as being "...as high as 5 micrometers".

Interesting design. An ecore element as you note, but the pleating looks tight and uniform which is a plus for an ecore. Different type/looking bypass. I'm not going to question how it works. The Champ Labs clicker type bypass looks odd too imo. I like the looks of thread end element adbv sealing area as compared to the Champ design.

How come no ecore trusses visible from the dome end?

Thanks for c&p.

Inner support "trusses" is a two piece affair and was taken out when I took the pic showing the inner pleat spacing.

I drilled out and took apart the bypass valve and it looks like a dimpled plate that fulcrums on a strip of spring steel.

Looks like the black rectangle piece of metal in the bypass valve works as a "beam spring".

The IAP video is pretty hokey.

Looks like an "adaptation" of Champ Labs Ecore technology coupled with an "adaptation" of Champ Labs "clicker" BPV technology. I don't recall ever seeing an Ecore with clicker bypass produced by Champ Labs. Champ Labs Ecores in applications requiring BPVs have either had combo valves or coil spring design BPVs.

The Champ Labs made AC Delco Classic PF1250 (non-Ecore) is an application that was still using clicker BPV last I looked at one of those.
