                From what I read there, there is little proving that the Motorcraft filter is bad in any way except for the "restrictive flow" claim. If this guy was gonna do it right, he'd test each one under pressure and see what the flow rate and particle filtering efficiency is. Taking one apart proves nothing except for pintpointing design flaws. Also no where on that page does it say that he is an expert in this field. To me it seems like it is a guy that has nothing better to do than buy a lot of oil filters and then cut them open to see whats inside. I'm still sticking with Motorcraft.

                  Did a little more research, definately looks like all filters are not created equal. Im going w/ Purolator of Mobil 1.

                    The guy is an idiot, and quite a waste of time. You know what I trust. There is only one company that is not making oil filter to create performance, save money, or be flashy. Only one company is selling filters for the sole purpose of good filtration. The maker of the automobile. Aftermarket is always a sacrifice in some way. And a less restrictive oil filter does what? Can anyone tell me? Oh that's right, it causes bearing wash out. A/C Delco makes the best air filters. That's a fact, because GM uses them on their tubo diesels. And turbos are very sensitive to dirt, as well as the high compression of diesel engines. One person knows what is best for their engine, the person that made it. Now who are you going to trust, the guy looking to make a buck, or the guy trying to make sure his company gets a good reputation?

                    I would like to compare an FL-1A to my FL-1HP.

                        OMG, let it die. Anyone remember an automaker that produced tens of thousands of cars and missed one of the 5 million things that could go wrong? Oh all of them. Mistakes happen. That was 25 years ago. back when safety was less of a concern than economy and cost were. The market drove them to such a product. Not Ford's "evil" plan. People get what they pay for, the Pinto was cheap. In perspective, a Kia is cheap, a Honda is not.

                              I heard somewhere that the Motorcraft filters were near identical in construction to Purolator, but i don't remember where I heard that. I also doubt Ford makes thier own filter. I'm sure one of the big makers cranks them out with Ford labels on them.
