Lately the waltuckeys in my area have all gone to blue bottles. I saw the silver and grabbed it. And a new ST filter. It replaced an old style white ST filter which Ill try to cut open soon.

This went into my turbo tercel. If the motor stays in long enough I plan to run the filter right to the 10k mark. Oil I dunno as it consumes a little bit. Probably 5k OCI interval. May not even put on that much mileage.

Most likely its all coming out next fall for a motor swap to a 1nzfe

Why the assumption that a change in bottle color means a change in what's in the bottle?

I have noticed the bottle shape is more indicative of the oil supplier. The generic looking bottles regardless of color seem to be WPP whereas the fancier more modern looking bottles I believe are Mobil.

Do we know who makes the redesigned blue SuperTech filters? I picked up a few of the older white Wix made ones on clearance this AM for 1.50 each.
