Here is a filter from a member that asked to see one cut and posted. Older one as snagged it from Rural King. Looks ok, wide spacing though. Enjoy the pictures folks smile

Thanks for the cut. What’s the deal with the holes in the baseplate? Looks like irregular cuts or flashing?

I'm guessing they dont care to debur the holes as look skanky to me. That's my uneducated 2cent

Thank you for the C&P; I was just thinking about Mopar filters recently. My parents had a Dodge Caravan with the 3.8L and the OFI was every 24k Kms.! (Every other OCI)

I was the requester. Thanks, Stude!

MO-899 is original equipment on Hellcats and Demons, but that filter is not very impressive.

Might have another thin layer of metal over outside of the base plate. Purolator does this on some spin-ons. Stude would have to look at the base plate closely to see if that's the case.

Isnt the SRT filter OEM on those?

Theres like 3 different MOPAR lineups,

Mopar Black Cans (Normal)
Mopar-Magnetti
And SRT Mopar White Cans.

And I do agree, the Mopar filters like the one in this post dont scream the 8-11$ price tag you usually see them for at box stores.

Whatever the reason, sloppy appearances like that don’t give me much confidence. I judge that way on pretty much everything.

It’s somewhat like a car that might have a great power train but if the instrument panel is full of loose knobs and buttons and the fit and finish isn’t right then it sets the wrong impression.

Adam-am I wrong, or are combo valves somewhat rare on Purolator made filters? I can't recall ever seeing one that had a combo before, maybe they're taking the worst features of several & combining them!

Standard Hemi filter, pretty plain for the price they carry for OE.

Thanks for the C&P Stude. My local Wal-Mart sells the Mopar filter more then the Fram ultra??.
