Default best oil filter?

so i was wondering the oil filter u guys recommend for the best price 3000 miles in my car takes 6 months so i dont change my oil often.

ive tried knn and that thing sucked for 12 bucks. mobil 1 is on there now and my oil is still pretty clean after it being on there for 6 months

but is the good ole motorcraft 1a the best??? the performance shop i go to has 1a's on all there expensive cars like the car with a 351c in it but isnt a ford cant rememver its name

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
