Off of a friend's 95' Toyota Land Cruiser ( 4.5L I6, 8 QT sump) with 190K miles.. Filter ran for 5k miles/5 months. No tears, ADV still pliable and pleats looks straight.

No surprises here. Not my favorite orange can but they work. I actually prefer the PH3600 in applications that take the PH8A/PH16 if I'm going to run orange. The 3600 tends to have more, tighter spaced pleats. Looks fine, thanks for cutting and posting!

Probably why Fram only rates it for use up to 5K miles.

Looks great. I like the Fram Extra Guards for an average oil filter. Thanks for cutting and posting the pictures.

Just curious, does the oil filter mount horizontally on your inline six. And if so do the initial start ups have the "dry" valve train noise till oil pressure builds up? In my Ford 4.9 inline engines they always did with the Fram orange, but that was years ago. Going back to Motorcraft oil filters solved that issue. Whimsey

yes, the filter mounts horizontally. Never had start up noise with this filter.

Many reasons that could happen beyond the adv leaking. We regularly test production filters for leak rate and they always exceed OE specs.
