This is off of a 2013 Ford police interceptor sedan with a 3.5 N/A engine. In use for 3,600 miles with unknown oil in it. Replaced with another Napa gold and 6 qts. of motorcraft.

"Oil slots" ? Looks to have holes, not louvers. Filter looks pretty good.

Holes are my favorite, unless they’re in my change pocket.

Thanks for C&P!

Is that a Champ Labs filter still? Did they not go bankrupt? The UCI thing??

Looks good. The only thing I would like to see is a metal crimp at the seam.
