If there is rust inside, take it back and exchange it. I would NOT use it. Bill

+1, you paid good money and there shouldn't be any rust on those Gold's, or any filter for that matter.

Not every gold filter is on sale, 1060 is regular price, but after few min talk to manager he agree to sale it for $4.99. I went home with 3 gold napa, should last for auto-rx.

Champ labs yes, M1 clone no. 100% synthetic media, that is backed with a wire mesh screen.

You need to do a little research on RP's oil filter, so you will become better educated on one of the current best filters available............Here's a start for you: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubb...&gonew=1#UNREAD
Every body is differnt, wat car do u drive ? ( old grandmother car, I bet ). U got to learn it from a person that own high horse power car,where I stress these oil to their limit. I put that royal purple maxgear [censored] and that ATF on my car, after a second season of track day, I drain all those gear oil out, and it just look like water !!!, I did some research and many peoples either owner LS1, LSX, Cobra have bad experiment on it. For oil filter I rather stick with mobil 1 filter and be done. ROYAL PURPLE MADE ME LAUGH !!!!!!!!

Ok, thanks! I figured since the backplate on both of them looked the same, they were the same on the inside.
