got too cold to crawl under the vehicle to do oil change...took it to local valvoline instant oil change shop; they used 5w-20 conventional & a vo-88 filter...e-core with funky dual baseplate; doppleganger to an ac-delco p48e but with white paint; just thought I'd share...

It should work OK.

The "new" style E-cores seem to be better built now.

Are you going to specify a certain one (or bring your own) next time?

yeah i broke down and bought a Defense Ecore the other day because they were on sale, figure i'll run it and then cut it open and see how it does, thought i dont' recall ever having an issue with an e-core but i never ran extended oil changes back when i used them (old supertechs)

I'm thinking that unlike the mentioned ACDelco PF48e which use a separate poppet type bypass in the dome, the vo-88 use a combo valve. So not exactly a clone.

Also seems that unlike WM TLE Fram "Core" line which has gone to all Fram construction now (no ecore), places like VOIC and Firestone OC still using either the old fram/champ combination line or has gone to all Champ now, like the old Super Tech line. Here the AZ STP blue filters are still the old fram filtration fram/champ filter line.

Here's a recent yt of an unused topic V0-88.

Yep, that's the undersized filter that VIOC puts on the Transit 250 in my sig-and also the reason it gets changed religiously every 5K.

So would you run these for short OCIs?

There's a listing on eBay for 12 for $22 and free shipping.

If you kept them to 5K or less, on a clean engine, they'd likely be fine, they would be good for cleaning out a sludged engine.

The filter will run 5000 miles/ 6 months.

It has the capacity for the V6 engines. So should be good on your 4 cylinder.

thanks for the yt video of the virgin cut filter! someone asked a ??? about bringing my own...if my next oci (4-4.5k) is during winter I will seek out a shop that does it less expensively ($36.99 regular oil change at VIOC - $7 coupon = $29.99) and I will bring one of my supertech filters as a backup if shop uses tearolator filters; the combo valve on the vo-88 not such a big deal since filter mounts vertically on the bottom of my engine...

Did they use Valvoline Premium in bulk? If so, the $30 would be about $3 for overhead, $7 for labor, $3 for the Filter, and $17 for oil. Giving VIOC $10 for doing it is probably not too bad.

Still want the bypass function of the combo valve to work, that's the part of the combo valve that's questionable. Filter orientation has no effect on the bypass function.

What proof exists the bypass does not work?

No hard proof ... but think about nitrile rubber at 0 deg F and how it stiffens up. The combo valve's bypass function is dependent on the flexibility of the rubber. I'd rather have a metal spring that isn't affected by temperature.
