Found this interesting. Read the efficiency specs on both. I understand the regular Pro is for short OCI's but they are identical in performance. All of my applications are pretty remote except one so I use Ultras but the regular Pro is $1.68 for a 3614.......... I do understand the wire backed model is $4-$5 but interesting anyway

In short,Fram Pro synthetic = Fram Ultra without grip and Fram Pro = Fram Tough Guard without grip.

I'm currently using the Fram Pro Synthetic filter FPS7317 for two oil change intervals each in my Ridgeline and M35. Got them on eBay for less than $6 each in a case of six.

I'm not sure. Possibly, the pro line is meant to be shipped in bulk to dealers/mechanics which would explain why they don't have the grips.

Good question- I assumed it was the OCOD and not the TG...... I don't buy Pro's so I never opened up the basic unit. 10K is not a short interval on the TG so I think the Pro is the base Fram- anyone know for sure?????

It can't be the Extra Guard because the E.G. Is not listed as 99% efficient @ 20 microns. It's possible it uses the same media as a Tough Guard, but less of it. Anyone know if it has a silicone ADBV like the Tough Guard?

Good question and remarks I might just buy one and cut it open to know. If it is a real TG its a deal.

I think the specs are wrong for the base Pro- this page gives a clue that it isn't a TG but the OCOD The Pro Plus appears to be the TG PRO PAGE

Think the Pro is the OCOD and the pro Plus is the TG And we all know the Ultra- Pro............ Price and oci dictate this.
