got the ball rolling on the oil change. Got 6 fram ultras on eBay for 50 bucks to the door. Couldn't find the genuine pf63's anymore. Also washed under the hood. It'll probably be the last time before winter. For everyone in salt country when does everyone start spraying acf-50 on stuff? I still need to scrap some more loose frame **** off and paint under there.

I have been doing it late october/early november. Just depends what the weather is doing. A couple years ago we had snow on Halloween. Other years we didn't get any until after Christmas.

I'm pretty sure that the E part number supersedes the older gen, no clue on any actual difference in performance . Not trying to force them on you, just letting you know this is what I did in case you wanted to stick with acdelco in the future as they do fit and I haven't had a problem with them.

Google the difference between the e and non e filters. Totally different filter from what I've seen. I just do what people say. Lol

No worries haha. I also don't have any long term results as I only ran them for a year till I traded in on the 19. Plan to use the same filters on this one as I still have a few unless I run across a reason not to.

yeah I dunno some people were whining about some plastic core or something in the E ones. I'm no expert. I just got the fram ultras because I heard good things. Plus they have the grippy ends which is nice. I ran the orange frams for 10 years in my Dakota with zero issues and people hate those.
