A few days ago, i had posted in the PCMO section about my uncles neglected 04 hemi, i had pulled a puro classic 14670 off of it that had been on for at least 7-10k miles. i cut it open, and as i was trying to look in the between the pleats the filter media crumbled apart in my hand. all the media came apart until it was just the steel center tube. Was it the mileage that did this or all these filters really junk now, with all the tears and whatnot? The media was clean, no sludge or gunk.
