I'm not sure if this has been posted here before, or if it's in the correct forum.

But here goes. Check this link out if you have any questions about oil filter quality ! Seems Napa/Wix make decent stuff.

I found this last night while cross referencing a filter.

I'm kinda partial to Purolater myself. Have had bad experiences with some of the other brands.

I've noticed that Wix filters always seen heavier when changing them out, so I guess they must filter better than most.

I've been running wix filters for some time,I tend to stretch oil change intervals sometimes and I like knowing I've got a good filter. Been a number of years ago the counter guys at a local auto parts store made a display out of filters they cut open,it was quite an eye opening experience as there is quite a variation in quality. I've not seen baldwin mentioned yet they make a high quality filter.

I did security at a Wix plant for several years and go tot watch some of their tests. It was amazing. They would buy filters off the shelf  - theirs and competitors- and test them. Their filters are good. I wouldn't use Fram or Deusch on my ex wifes car.
