Nothing really to see here. Filter was run for 8k No crud, ADBV was pliable. I like the centering spring/bypass valve combo in the dome end. Took a photo of the widest pleats, which were at the seam. Replaced with a Purolator Boss.

That's one short filter! I thought about using those in place of the XG7317, but they're a LOT smaller!

I would like to see the replacement Purolator Boss, stood-up right next to that short Fram, for a height comparison.

If the Boss uses a base end bypass valve it could be even shorter inside. It's defineately "shorter" in efficiency.

Why? These seem to do well enough.

Smaller filter than I use on my Briggs, though.

Ahh ... Fast enough LOL


The Mazda 6 is a very good car. I had a rental Mazda 6 and enjoyed driving it quite a bit.

It's alright.

I don't much care for it.

Took these before throwing it away since someone wanted to see a size comparison between this and the Boss.
