I deal and use only WIX filters. I recently switched from Rotella to Brad Penn diesel oil (it is highly regarded oil in the racing field and shows good numbers in UOA's). I will use only WIX filters on my racecar, pickup and my Raptor. Have seen bad things happen with Fram filters since I've been at this shop...
