So, I decided to cut this filter open since I had not saw any of these. $9~ was "work account" price; retail is $12.69.

Doesn't look to bad if I must say

Nice photos, but make mine a Fram Ultra. How many of these does Autozone sell at $12 plus?

By itself - not worth it. But in an "Oil Change Special" for 29.99 with Mobil 1 or Castrol Edge or Valvoline SYN/Maxlife - I'd definitely use it.

Nothing against the STP, but i'm with you on this. When push comes to shove, the FramXG for roughly $9 is hard to beat.

Thanks car51, as aslways.

I agree with Vlad on this. If part of a $29 deal I'm good with that.

Thanks for your work here Captain. You are the man.

Looks good! Thank you for posting smile

$9 is a lot for a wholesale work account price! Interesting media yellow media with a white sponge thing with holes covering it. Cut the media itself open banana

The real question is, is it better than a Purolator Boss, Wix XP, or Fram Ultra?

The louvers didn't look very open to me; anyone else notice this?

I'll stick with FRAM ultra

Although I didn't ask for the media cutting we all need to thank car51 for going the extra mile and funding the project. Thanks Adam!!!!

It looks good, but I'm with the others who are sticking with a Fram Ultra.
