The first filter was used on a 1997 Saturn SL1 SOHC for about 3,000 miles over the course of 12 months. Oil was Havoline High Mileage.

This FL400S is not one that has the issue with tearing...

The 820 has that covered quite well LOL

The FL-820 is definitely NOT the best made filter. The FL-400 is probably fine....

Not any more. A while back maybe when we thought it was going to be a rational discussion. Now it is a realization of something completely different.
