Question Racor fuel filter vs. Motorcraft filter

I've heard before that it's the same filter with a different name and part number. I've also heard that it isn't the same. Is it the same? Or, if it isn't, is it at least just as good?

I am not totally sure if they are the same but they are both quality fuel filters. The only reason I say I am not sure they are the same is I have seen the Racor marketed as a 10 micron filter (factory spec, same as MC) and a 7 micron filter. Honestly, depending on what efficiency they are referring to, it could be the same filter. Either way both are good filters.
