I don't think you can go wrong with the Mopar filter. Never heard anything negative on Purolator's either tho.

There are a few factors to consider. Are you changing the oil every 3000 miles (old school) or are you practicing the longer oil change interval (OCI) or annual OCIs? The regular Purolator would be a fine choice for a 3000 mile OCI. But some of the more popular mid-level filters would be Mopar, NAPA Gold (Wix) Purolator PureOne to the more expensive K&N and Mobil 1.

According to this article: http://minimopar.knizefamily.net/oilfil ... #purolator the Mopar 5281090 (the filter for our engines) is made by Purolator. They also show that it has a nitrile antidrainback valve (like the bottom-of-the-line Purolator model), which is not as reliable as a silicone one that is used in the better filters (such as the Purolator Pure OneÔäó filter).

Many people use the over sized model too....Mobil 1 3001 and the K&N 301 are oversized...you can use these numbers to cross reference to other brands

That's a nice comparison that I hadn't seen before, Craig. Some of it might be out of date but good data none the less. Though I'm sure many wouldn't consider using a MotorCraft filter, I did some more research when looking for oil filters for our newer Taurus and it faired very well for the upfront cost.

I changed over from fram to wix after folks here were not talking too good of fram. Wix filters seem fine to me.

Wix are good, Purolator PureOne's are goods (I have some in stock) there is a new Purolator Synthetic filter as well. Currently, I am using a Royal Purple (30-8A) with the RP 10W40 I am running. I got a killer deal on the oil ($5.50 a qt) so i thought I would give the 10w40 a shot with the highway driving I do.

Hastings is another good filter. Mobil1 & K&N are also good, but I believe that I read somewhere that they are basically the same filter (internally)
