Motorcraft or Racor (the OEM for Motorcraft) ONLY, and EXCLUSIVELY.

Motorcraft has patents on the design of both the fuel and oil filters for the 6.0L. Other filters "fit" but don't provide adequate filtration.

You can use International fuel filters. They are the exact same filter Ford sells but for a lot less money.

Just use Purolator. They make Motorcraft, and are usually cheaper, as well as available at AAP.
