Not really too far out of the way to get a Motorcraft oil filter. They sell them at Walmart and every other place I've ever been.

I do air filter every other change and I only use Motorcraft filters because they are really good about not draining back the oil. and i have no oil preference really. i used castrol gtx conventional once. then valvoline conventional. now i have valvoline durablend. i'm trying to reduce friction due to my 1800 rpm knock.

not trying to beat a dead horse here....ford parts are designed & engineered for ford vehicles. period. Ex. Ford Motorcraft sparkplugs......the best plugs you can get for our rangers. period. Your engine will love you for keeping stock(ignition, crankcase, fluids). Hey, go nuts with pulleys, exhaust and intakes...but internals? Don't f**k with that shizz bro. Motorcraft! My opinion

i have been looking at the threads on most filter lately and puralator and fram have like 3 rows of threads doesn't seem like much at all. I compared the Motorcraft filter and the Mobil one i use and they look entirely different, the Mobil one filter has the hole and a set of threads. and the Motor craft has the threads then it drops down and has more.

Same here. After reading a few oil evaluation test results, I've went to Mobil1 full synthetic in everything. It was the best performer in all categories in the tests that I read results for.. These were independant tests done on a forum by guys with real oil testing equipment.. I'll have to try and find it again.

Motorcraft filter all the way...

Wix or NAPA Gold, same thing. If you ever want to find out just take a few different brands for the same engine and cut'em open. You'll be surprised at what you find. Fram's aren't much more than a paper towel wrapped up inside. And I agree with most of these guys.. OEM parts are always the best...if you can afford them.
