Filter was in use for 7500 miles on my '07 Pacifica 4.0L; forgot the exact part number, but size is equivalent to a Fram PH16.

From appearance alone, it's one of the best constructed filters I've ever come across. There is slight unevenness in the pleats near the seam, but other than that, not much to complain about! I rotated the filter in quarters for each photo so each side is visible. For the $4-5 I paid for it, I'd happily run it again, looks like it will hold up well to extended drains. Any visible metal flakes were introduced when I cut the filter open with an angle grinder.

Looks good. What oil and filter went back in and on?

Oil that was drained was Castrol Edge 0w-30, new oil is Mobil1 EP 0w-20 with Fram Ultra XG16.

Nice filter construction and great efficiency. How much $ for these filters? Good C&P, thanks.

Almost certain it was $4 and change. I don't remember the exact price and RA doesn't list that filter for my application anymore. shrug

Those pleats are awfully tight looking - I'd like to see some flow numbers with cold oil

is that a 3/4" - 16 thread?

Lots of others near similar size should work.
