Good evening folks. Off a 2015 HEMI RAM of a friends. Regular cab work truck also. I’m guessing 5w30 and this filter.

Looks good I will say that much; nothing more. Put a WIX on with some M1 0w40 as friend is like me or not a thin fan. Truck has almost 110k on it. Enjoy the pics smile

Really like that center tube with lots of big holes! This is how a filter should look.

A quick google search brings up nothing on this filter. It looks amazing if you can get it cheap (without knowing the specs).
Any idea how long this was in service for?

Looks like one of the many Made in China clones that are around.
No idea on efficiency, but more than likely the same or better than most all OEM.

Looks decent, it is definitely a Chinese clone seen around here. It goes by many names. Ecogard blue filters being one that comes to mind quickly.

If it's an ecogard clone then efficiency might be 98.8% at 30 microns.
