WARNING: FRAM filter CH9549 changed

So I stopped at Wally's today to pick up a filter for my next oil change. I discovered that Fram has changed their box for the filter that fits our trucks. To my surprise I discovered that the filter seems to have been changed. The lower felt ring is changed and all the patent info is now gone. I can't say as this is a material change that will cause the filter to not function properly. It's info...make your own decision.

I didn't look in the bag inside the box. These just popped up in my area so it seems like old news. I'll get the MC ones for $1 more....no issues for me. I just hope MC doesn't change.

What you have posted is the Fram ExtraGuard filter. Supposedly (I haven't verified it) Fram still sells the Racor one in their "regular" series filter- it is in an ALL orange box (doesn't have the yellow stripe). Personally I am sticking with MC as well - will buy them from RiffRaff.

So last night I was in Wally World and stopped by the oil filter section for a side by side comparison. They had three filters that would fit the 6.0 liter.
  • Fram CH9549 Standard filter offered by Fram
  • Fram TG9549 Upgraded filter offered by Fram
  • Motorcraft FL-2016 / Ford 3C3Z-6731-AB OEM filter
I compared Motorcraft to the ToughGuard, and they were identical. Same height, same end plates, identical numbers stamped on the endplates, except Fram had added their part number to the ToughGuard filter. There was no notible difference in the two filters.

Then I compared the Standard Fram CH9549 to the ToughGuard. There is a clear difference. The endcaps are different. The height isn't the same. And the standard Fram has no patent numbers on it anywhere. In the past, I've found genuine Racor filter in CH9549 boxes, clearly that is no longer the case.
