I apologize to the member that wanted a FRAM XG 3600 cut open. Good ole' Wal Mart outsourcing vendors screwed me royally. Sent me this instead. Highly irritated and no receipt or paperwork in box mad

When the "health situation" is over I'll go to Rural King and get a XG 3600. Way to go Wal Mart mad

Anyways, enjoy the photos smile

Doesn't look that impressive. Thin media, some wide pleat spacing, for a couple dollars more get the XG instead.

Not impressed in the least! That medium looks seriously lacking in filtering ability as it is short having very few pleats compared to other premium btands

This filter is acceptable for a 5000 mile run and get it off.

Actually looks like an Orange can Fram to me on the inside. Disappointing!

yo Adam, I thought you said you were leaving?

Don't get me wrong, it's always great to hear from you and see your autopsies.

So when you do go, where are you going where they don't have oil filters or internet? (generally speaking, no personal info needed)

Agreed!

You also forgot to mention that you can get TWO or THREE OFI's out of an XG hide

Other than the inconsistent pleat spacing - Looks fine.

Though I prefer short and fat rather than tall and long - at least in filters if given that option.

These are painted blue and sold as OE service replacement by Subaru and Honda dealers .

Media spec my differ, and Subaru uses a nitrile ADBV.

A healthy engine does not need a filter with much media. That filter is fine for a normal oci. Nice to see how clean the inside is,no rust.

Filter looks ok to me. I prefer the Ultra's to the TG. Thanks for the C&P.
