I was just on there web site and they have mine in stock, ST8...Looks like about the same price they always were $2.84...
Anyone cut one of these open yet? I noticed for my application they added 2 more inlet holes, and the holes appear to be drilled at an angle... confused

They are not drilled at an angle.

It's two different steel plates with holes in them.

Just one more reason why to NOT run these!

I won't ever run an E-core filter on anything. I just hate how cheap they are made.

I'd rather have a metal center tube than a plastic cage.

Iím thinking GM came up with the E core. The plastic is lighter than steel and since they made 10 million filters per year, and they were .2 ozs lighter per filter they saved 2 million ozs of weight that translated to a lowering of their fleet gas mileage buy 0.003 mpg and that was good . (all calculations are made up).

LOL

I stopped by both of my local WM today neither one had these new filters. In fact one of them was still trying to sell the old filters for $2.84. Neither had any good deals at all. No Walmart sale to my family today.

I would be less bothered by the plastic IF the openings were a little smaller or had a "X" pattern opening instead of the square or rectangular so the filter media could not push through (as it has on other e-cores).

Yep, eCore center tubes are fine if designed properly. When they first came out there were issues with wide cage windows and blown out media. Louver center tubes are fine too, if they are formed correctly during manufacturing - always inspect before buying.

One thing I'm still not comfortable with is combo valves.

Champ Lab said the cage is 2X stronger than a steel core. It was in their feature list on the e core. I like the updated e core, always have, always will. laugh Thousands are stuck on cars in shops every day. Better than supporting China's manufacturing empire. These new ST's are going to ding Fram's shelf sales at WM I bet. The white paint ones weren't eye catching enough, the blue is better. The blue looks OE I want to buy one. People are hooked on anything new with new color paint.
