Here is a follow up 4,700 miles later to my last post. Link https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4649457/1 It was convenient for me to change it at this time. Filter looks great, one little upsy with the glue shown in the first picture but I don't think its anything to worry about. Glad to see less carbon/sludge this time around. I think engine is clearing up and oil/filter are doing a great job.
