What brand oil filter?

What brand oil filter are you using? Got the part #? Why is that your choice?

Bosch on the wife's new car and my mustangs. Fram for everything else. No reason other than that's what I do.

I've used K&N and Ford Racing on my Mustangs. Ever since I saw a display at a local O'Reillys and did some research, I like WIX on my grocery getter and F150. Metal top and bottoms to prevent collapse and not really that expensive. Was just curious.........

I like royal purple, I saw them all cut them open and I liked RP. Fram was the worst I won't buy another their filter paper pulls apart letting anything through. Bosch looked really good too.

Thank you for being precise!
Each of the above brands have a Crap, Acceptable, and a Decent filter. Just because you are using Brand-X, you might be using the Crap model.
Oh yeah, I use mostly the FL500S myself.

Under wtty I get my filters from the dealer I would bring it to for wtty work so I can have a good relationship with them (say "Hi" to service & sales each time. After wtty whatever premium brand my local parts monger has in stock normally it is made by Wix.

I use the Ford filter too. My reasoning is that I don't wait the recommended 10k for an oil change. I use a quality synthetic oil and change the filter and oil at 5k intervals.

My GT is brand new to me since 1 Nov and I haven't changed the oil yet. I've used Wix and Motorcraft in my 05 5.4L F150. The Wix is taller and makes contact with the lower coolant hose so I haven't used it since I made that discovery. I'm using only Motorcraft filters now. I considered using the Mobile One or K&N because of the built-in hex. I just went out and bought a filter cap wrench.

I've been using Mobile One oil for 28 years and have never had any oil related issues. I plan on using it in my GT as well.

My next oil change will be royal purple oil and filter. Ordered from AM, should be here Friday and it was cheaper with discount than local parts store.

Agreed. If you are going to change the oil that often, switch to dyno (non synthetic) based oils and save coin. Synthetics will protect an engine well beyond 2500 miles.

I was recently at the Daytona 24 hour race. Watching the teams beat the snot out of these cars for 24 hours of brutal running, and they don't change their oil for the entire race. Granted its not 2500 miles worth, but running at speed for 24 hours, that's proof enough for me that synthetics can take a good beating and provide great protection against wear.
