Not flammng you here but believe me the Ea filters as advertised, the Ea oil and air filters are the best in the industy, which is a Donalson patent. Sorry you experienced such a bad experience with the filter. All I can say in 8 years of purchasing product I never had a issue with anything being defected in workmanship with plenty of customer running them. Did you get a bad filter possible.

I'm always here to help in any way for the Amsoil product line and as a site sponsor.

Max, Tim and you say the oil products are good. That's good enough for me, but the QC on the air filter is lacking. I'm making a BHAF now so it is a mute point. What's to flame? I'm just telling you the one I had collapsed.

Speaking of BHAF For those who like the BHAF, Donaldson has there own series. The NAPA P#2790 cross references to Donaldson B105006 10.5" length, 10.5 O.D with a 4" Inlet

My self I no longer trust the filter minder after I installed a new Fleetguard air filter and a few days later saw it was in the red! By lucky I found out I could pull the filter minder it in to the red by just hitting 3/4 WOT merging with traffic on the Freeway.

I also agree, I believe there was a little discussion awhile ago about the filter minder not being reliable.

The filter minder if and when it pulles down, will stay in that position till you reset it I believe.
