This is only my 2nd filter cutting, but I have noticed 3 major differences from the Motorcraft I cut open a few days ago. Im sure theres more but the 3 that jumped out at me is that the can on this one is waaaay easier to bend and cut. It seems that being a way smaller filter it would be a little tougher but not in this case. The second is that the ADBV is made out of some hard shoe sole rubber and is not very pliable as the silicone one in the Motorcraft was. The third is the number (or lack of) pleats. I cant be sure with this one because I didnt count the pleats on the Motorcraft but there are gaps present here that wasnt present with the Motorcraft filter. On to the pics. This comes off of a 2005 Chevrolet Aveo, 1.6 Ecotec running PYB 5w30. Oil and filter was ran for 3500 miles, PYB 5w30 and a ST3387A went back in. A couple of other I noticed were different, the ADBV stuck to the "cap" of the can instead of the filter, also the leaf spring. I dont know what kind of difference that makes, just an observation. Also even the gasket is orange on the OCOD lol. Thanks for looking.
