XG2 is the wrong size isn't it? Shouldn't you be running 10060 or 16?

XG2 (Mopar MO-899) was the original filter for the 5.7L HEMI. On later models RAM changed to the XG10060 (Mopar MO-339) because of clearance issues getting the larger filter past the steering rack. You can still get the larger filter in there, it's just a little tighter getting it past the steering rack.

OK @ZeeOSix, finally got the media reasonably dry.

First observation, which @Pablo might find interesting, this is the EaO next to the XG2. The media stack in the XG2 is a fair bit taller:

Fair bit of carbon in the pleat folds as you can see. No metal flecks that I could detect.

I will add that the EaO is BLACK from the carbon that's in the oil from the @High Performance Lubricants run. The paper towels are much darker than they were on the XG2.
