Bosch oil filter

Attached is a picture from the top of a Bosch premium filter and a Motorcraft. Will the little pressure ball cause any issues on the Bosch filter?

Without seeing the rest of the filter, I cant tell why it is there instead of solid plastic piece. In any case, unless you have seen several guys running these on a 6.4 for a lot of miles without any issues, I would stick with the OEM filter. The Bosch may be better than Ford's but it may not be designed specifically to work on a 6.4 so it could be worse. Since there haven't been many issues with the Ford filter, taking a chance on an unknown is not worth it IMO.

Thanks for your input. I was at autozone picking out some Stanadyne lubricating additive and was looking at what stuff they have. The Bosch was only $16.99. So I thought it was weird and never heard about anyone using it. The lower part looked the same as the Ford filter. Autozone added some more diesel products in one corner. Plus I was looking at what places to get ELC coolant. When I am up for my next oil change, I was planning to do a coolant flush at the same time.
