    Wix 51372 cut open 2k miles

    Wix 51372 cut open Ford 4.6 2000 miles. Miles SB 10w30 was used. Had to change the starter motor and I hate jacking the car up so I just changed it while it was in the air. Filter looked great, was on for 9 months and there were a lot of cold starts on this OCI. Replaced with same filter.
