Spin-on oil filter specs

I've been looking around for the best bang for my buck in oil filters for the BPD kit. With my location options can be somewhat limited and shipping can really add to the cost. A Wix filter in town will run me $23. However I can get a Baldwin in Thunder Bay for $12! This is where the question lies.

I've found most of the specs for the Baldwin BT349 vs the Wix 51832 and they come up as interchangeable in the cross reference charts. The Baldwin has an absolute micron rating of 12 while the only rating I can find for the Wix is 32. The bypass PSI is 20 for the Baldwin and 13-19 for the Wix. However the flow rate is the one I can't find. The Wix flows 12-16 GPM but I've been searching and can't find a rate for the Baldwin anywhere.

Anyone have any ideas?
