Center tube perforations are very interesting.

What this looks like:
"Assembled in Mexico of Asian components"

Very smooth perforations. The filter appears to have done well. Thanks for the well done cut & post.

Based on this one, not Purolator anymore. However, looking at the leaf spring design, reminds me of the Nissan OEM made by Gohner in Mexico.

Looks like it did it's job at 3k miles. Filter construction looks decent imo.

Thanks for c&p.
