The thing is that over the years, there have been some inconsistent reports from people that have bought from the aftermarket suppliers (like FRAM). However - It has been a long time that a NON-OEM oil filter was found in a FRAM box. I also verified through Parker-Hannifen sales (Racor) that they supplied FRAM with the correct oil filter.
Personally, I wouldn't be worried about buying a FRAM oil filter, but I know what to look for. However, I will always wonder if a company like FRAM would suddenly switch to a different supplier - just because they were cheaper.
Because of that question, I just buy Racor, International, or Motorcraft. I know those are correct and I don't have to worry ....... it doesn't bother me that I MIGHT HAVE saved a dollar or two shopping different brands.
