Carquest fuel filters

I went to Carquest to get a fuel filter for my 03 Duramax and they changed the part number on me to a different one said the old one got replaced. Any way I am not to sold on this new internal design. It seems as if the inside O ring doesn't go as far as the old one did. Im worried that it won't seal as good as the old design. Any one know of or has used the new Carquest filters.

I would hope that Carquest sold you the new coalescer filter?

Did it cost more than the old part number?

Information on Improved Fuel Filter for 6.6L Duramax Diesel Engine
(WD Bulletin 09D-068)
Effective May 4, 2009, an improved fuel filter (12633243/TP3012) is now released that will service all 2001-
2009 Chevrolet and GMC C/K models and 2003-2009 Chevrolet and GMC C4500/5500 series vehicles
with the 6.6 Duramax Diesel. The new coalescer filter provides the following benefits / improvements over
the existing dual pleat design.
Significantly improved water separation with both diesel and biodiesel blended fuels to protect fuel
injectors and pumps from corrosion.
1.5 to 2 times the contaminant capacity depending on the type of contaminants in the fuel (longer
life/less prone to plugging problems/better performance at high altitudes).
Particle removal efficiency that is equivalent to the current Duramax fuel filter.
Improved resistance to cold weather plugging with diesel and biodiesel improperly blended or additized
for cold operation.
Designed for use with all Duramax Diesels 2001-2009.
This improved filter is currently used in O.E production.

How much did they charge you? What was the part number and did it say anything about coalescer on the package? I think the Carquest filter is the coalescer filter.

CarQuest filters are WIX/Afinia. They have two lines -Blue Label is mostly domestic made. Red Label is "offshore" made.

Was the filter a plastic housing -last three numbers 960?

If so same as a 33960 NAPA or 3960 WIX...

The price of the filter was $38 dollars. As to the part number its 86960. Im just worried its not getting a good seal on the intake side of the diesel.
