I have heard from a Ford dealership mechanic that he had seen an aftermarket tranny bypass filter collapsed when he pulled it to change it. Naturally his recommendation was to stick w/ a Ford filter. Even from the dealership it isn't that much - less than $20. For what it looks like you get, it seems overpriced, but in the overall scheme of things it is inexpensive. I chose to be conservative and buy the Motorcraft filter.
FYI - I had to use an impact wrench to get the filter housing off.
