Good evening folks. This filter and EDGE 5w20 was off a friends 2014 F-150 pickup with the 5.0 v-8. Almost 100k on truck also. Had 2 5k ociís of EDGE 5w20 also. Put a load of EDGE 5w20 EP and a tough guard 10575 in and on. Filter was on almost 2years by the way. Iíd say it held up good smile

I'd trust a second generation Ecore like this more than a Motorcraft FL-500S personally, but no longer use either Ecore nor Motorcraft oil filters.

Yeah, ADBV was somewhat flexible also. I was surprised it held up this good

Car51 - thanks for the well done cut & post.

I found I could easily run the Champ PH820 to 6K miles. No tears or seam splits. The ADBV function is non-existent after 2K miles. In spite of this, I would run the eCore over the MotorCraft. The FL820S is an accident waiting to happen. YMMV.

Looks good. The improved Ecores has restored my faith in them.

Element looks good, they have improved the pleating and the cage. However, two years & 10k miles with the "combo valve", no thanks. Generally speaking nitrile not noted for that longevity. No big deal when it's sole function adbv, as bypass function too, another matter. And current generation GM vehicle ACDelco ecores say no entirely to combo valves.

Thanks for c&p.

What have I missed? I have always used this filter on both my F150 and our 3.0 Escape also uses this filter. Since 98 on the f150 and 04 on the escape, never any issues. What is the issue with them?
