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
