It confuses me so much as to why a person would cheap out on an oil filter. They're like 7$ from the dealer and you cannot buy a better filter for your car. Even on my DD focus I buy the motorcraft filter. Why would I put complete garbage on a compulsory part?

Motorcraft filters from O'Riellys or Summit are like $5. The motorcraft filter is just a rebadged Purolator with the Dealership mark up. Just because it's more expensive doesn't mean it's better.

I didn't say that though. 7$ is not a lot of money for an oil filter. I am aware of Purolator making Motorcrafts filters. For the difference of spending 5$ on a fram vs 7$ on a motorcraft it doesn't make sense to cheap out 2$.

What about Bosch oil filters? Are those junk? That is what I have on my Foxbody. I run Fram on every else. I will change now after hearing how bad they blow balls. I will usually grab a oil and filter package that is offered on a special at Autozone. Not store brand oil but good synthetic.

The Bosch filters are made by Purolator, IIRC, and are a quality filter.

My brother owned a paint shop. My Camaro was up on stands in the paint booth so I decided to change the oil while it was up. A no no in the paint booth, but I'm pretty neat about it. I slapped the new filter on and didn't realize the rubber gasket from the old filter stuck to the block. I double gasketed to mofo. I fired it up, the pressure gauge came up, then oil blew all over the place. My brother lost his shit on me lol, good thing I can beat his ass.

Luckily I've never had the experience of leaving a gasket on. But as far as filters go, I use M1, Bosch, or Purolator. Haven't used a Wix yet.

Timing chain failed, wrapped up on the crank gear, and wedged between the block and the gear, halting the front of the crank. The 5500lbs of truck attached to the back of the crank wanted to keep cruising down the highway at 80 MPH. All I salvaged from that engine was one valvecover and the upper intake manifold. It even wrecked the FEAD brackets.

Another thing to note is not only is the Fram media element is horrible but the anti-drain back valve is horrible. Modular motors really like the anti-drain back valve to run properly. Motorcraft / Purolator, Wix, and Amsoil is what I would recommend for any vehicle.

I've has very good luck with napa gold, balwin, mobil1 and the motorcraft. I prefer the balwins. NEVER USE THE ORANGE CAN OF DEATH.
