That looks exactly like the OEM. Good to know, but I have so many oil filters for my car. I believe Tischer sells like 10 or so for $70.

There was a test of all aftermarket oil filters done a while back. They compared a bunch of types as well. K&N scored really low. I dont know if they have stepped up their Quality Control since.

You seem really excited. What's the advantage of a K&N oil filter supposed to be? If it's anything like their air filters, I'll be avoiding them.
