    06 RXT, myself. I found some small/medium shavings in my pleats once when doing an oil change. Prob. 2nd or 3rd oil change - mind you, none were in the oil, only deep in the filter pleats. Asking around, I was told normal wear & tear on the 4Tec. That was over 6 years ago, minimum - haven't had a problem yet. Just my 2 and some FYI... good luck to you, sir.

    On a 10 year old machine like mine, not good. Not normal wear and tear.

    It looks like alumunium, no gold color ar tint. Clean aluminium . And when I say chunks there more like flakes. Like the size of a ball point pen tip
