Really nothing to see here. Oil was M1 AFE 0W-20 for 6,254 miles. OLM was at 16%. This is the first Wix on this truck. I will say that I am much happier with the even pleats over the AC Deacon PF63E that I was running. The filter did it’s job.

Looks good. I would agree that the even pleat spacing does give the impression of a better quality build.

Does look good, especially with the 22 PSI bypass valve setting.

Yep, kinda boring, which is the case of a filter a good thing. Wavy pleats don't bother me as much as some folks, but these look straight and uniform. Typical results with Wix/Napa Gold ime. Did it's job.

Thanks for c&p.

That filter could have gone way past that remaining 16% of OLM.
Generally a fine showing from a good Wix product, as most of their stuff is.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
