Since I've been using the Mobil 1 15W-50 lubricant, with the higher levels of the zinc additives comparable to the older oils, I also use the Mobil 1 oil filters. The consensus seems to be that they are an excellent filter, made by Champion, which also makes the Royal Purple, etc. I just wish they had the black grippy coating on the ends like the Fram, which can be useful if your hand is oily, I would gather.
Haven't used Fram for years, since our early Alfas, for which we never had a problem with excessive bearing wear with them, easily putting on 180k miles, still with decent oil pressure and no observable cam/tappet wear.
But, that was then.
