I'm going to disagree with almost every post stated above. The most important factor to consider with a oil filter is we're the Bypass Valve is located inside the filter. If the bypass valve is on the bottom of the oil can when the valve opens it lets the oil wash over the filter material flushing all the impurities captured by the filter back into the engine. If its at the top no oil will flush into the filter all all on cold starts or high RPM's. YouTube it and see for yourself. And Wix is garbage along with Fram.

Old thread,,, but in reality, the debate will never end,,,

I use FRAM and I ain't skeered to say so! LOL!!!

Heck, once my 14 gets some miles on it, I'll use a FRAM and most likely only change it every other oil change,,,

Recommend folks go to BITOG and glean your own intel from there,,,

just fyi for the op in case he still follows this. i use the K&N white filter with the not. just makes it easier to get out. i have heard some oil filters have loosend up so when hand tightened, i use a wrench and snug it up with about a 1/2 inch extra. so far so good.
