A short comparison of the two genuine oil filters produced for the United States and Europe Market. They are fit for Duratec HE 1.8 / 2.0 and new EcoBoost engines.
The most difference between these oil filters inside. Silicon anti-drain-back valves have different construction but both good enough. Steel springs are also not the same. Filtering cartridge inside European item wider but shorter. Filter paper is visually exactly the same.
