My dealer doesn't have the part number for the 04 filter yet. He assumes that it is the same as the 03. Is he right?

Frams used to be some of the best. Now they "ARE" the worst. Be warned, How about the cardboard you can see on the ends? Think your oil galleys will like that stuff? Filter medium is also thin and tears. I'll try and post a link. You'll be convinced. "There's basically only 5 filter manufacturers of oil filters in the U.S." Many different names tho.

Yes - Fram is crap! Stay with the stock filter. At least you know that it is OK.

If I remember correctly, most aftermarket filters are worse than stock.
