i just use motorcraft replacement filters. i am at 94k miles and i change my oil every 3-4k miles.

i have too heard fram sucks, so i stuck with what i could find was good at a descent price from research. so motocraft replacement seems like the same as all the others, but cheaper.

Motorcraft..... has an internal drainback valve that prevents the oil from draining back into the oil supply so that when you start it, it has a supply of oil for the first few seconds. if you've ever started a car and it knocked for the first few seconds of running until the oil pressure built up, it more than likely had a filter that didn't have a valve. All Motorcraft filters have these. Also, for a amazing discovery, cut a few different filters apart and unroll the filter media, motorcaft has quite a bit more than most filters, or go somewhere where they crush oil filters and look at them. the ones that crush the most, have the least amount of filter media.

i use the pureone filters too, but the only thing i like about the frams are the non-slip grip tape on the outside... wish they would do this on the purlators makes it a lot easier with the oily hands.

looking for a new project stang

If you get a fram, get the tough guard. It has a drain back vavle. The motorcraft FL-1A does not have a drain back vavle, Not that I know of. I guess I will tear one apart to make sure. I like bosch.
