Frams for the non-turbos do NOT have the check valve. It's easy
to see; look down the central threaded hole, and it's either there
or it's not.
The Mahle filters from Imparts have them (about $5), and are good
solid construction - at least twice the weight of a Fram. Mann filters
have them ($ unknown - mine was included in a change), and look identical
to the Mahle. The OEM brand filters I mentioned earlier also have them
and also look identical to the Mahle.
I don't notice a huge difference in noise between valve/no-valve,
but I usually don't listen that well.
