I just replaced the oil filter on my dads 5.0 Bronco, we replaced a carquest filter with a motorcraft one. The carquest filter looked like better quality.

That said, Wix, purolator and motorcraft are some of the best.

I believe there was a website that dissected every filter and compared them, something like 'the oil guy' was what the site was called
Car: 1986 Mustang GT Hatchback || 5.0L H.O. || Borg-Warner T5 || 150,000 Miles || 26.5mpg

Mods: Bfg Traction T/As || Front sway bar || K&N/silencer removed || Hood pins

Times: faster then a speeding Prius
