the 6.0Ls are engineered to work very specifically so i wouldn't change from OEM.. i mean this oil system is supposedly German.. and we know how anal retentive they can be with specifications.. well.. if you've worked on a German car or your relatives are German

Wix filters supposedly do not seal properly...I had a flashing oil light when I got my truck with a wix filter in it, changed the oil, put in a OEM filter and cap, no more flash....

Not to be rude, but why risk it? Put the one on that works (Motorcraft/Racor) and have one less thing to worry about. We're talking about a $6,000-20,000 engine here.

I'm not a stickler for Motorcraft parts, but in this truck I stick with what I know works. Repairs cost way too much to be a pioneer to me.

i did the last oil change no realizing the importance of using a motorcraft and just assumed that spending the extra money meant getting a better product....ok maybe not my mistake but didnt have any problems with that one since then ive seen everyone saying to run motorcraft....so then my next question is to run a motorcraft filter must i buy a new screw on cap?

Huh?

You shouldn't have to buy a new cap with any factory replacement oil filter.
