This is the factory installed filter that came with the car. Sediment and scarring due to being cut open with a wheel. Wasn't looking for anything but filter design info since this was an engine on break-in anyway. The usual Purflux zig-zag design, with a dome end bypass protected by a screen. Also included pictures of a brand new filter. The difference between the Ferrari and Maserati version is the Maserati comes sealed in a bag, with a plastic cover over the base. Why? They test the filters before packing. The Maserati filters are wet with oil. About an ounce was still left in it. Oddly, this filter uses exactly no ADBV at all.

Well, Purflux caters mostly to the Euro market. The ones that recommend 10k+ mile oil changes. This car does not wait that long before OLM demands it be changed, and I'm sticking to it while it has a warranty. I suspect it may be related to flow as well. These engine are supposed to move a lot of oil.

Yeah -- with more surface area, you can use a finer filter medium without an unacceptable pressure drop, right?
