I bought and installed one of these filters from Madjack recently. It was the first time I had ever replaced the fuel filter by myself. The o-ring was a little tricky but nothing to cry about. It took about 30 minutes and in the few thousand miles since there has been zero trouble. I will be ordering more of these filters.
As good as OEM!
I had the same trouble as another reviewer did with the o ring but I got it in place by spreading my hand so that I pushed down on all angles at the same time. I would never use another Wix filter. The wix filters are now made in China and the canister is tapered in so it can't hold the filter media that a Racor does. Cut one in two and compare.
This is a great filter, came with everything it needed and installed with no issues. If you do a filter cut comparison to other filters, it is as good if not better than other similar designed filters on the market.
I switched to the Racor filter from Wix. The top o-ring groove on this filter is not significant enough to allow the o-ring to stay seated properly while installing the filter. I had to remove and rescrew it three different times before I got the o-ring to stay put and seal properly. Every other time it leaked fuel when priming. The Wix has never given me this problem. I will be buying Wix fuel filters for my Duramax from now on. This is in no way a negative review of MadJack Racing, Dane provided excellent pricing & service and I will continue to buy from him.
