Ok i found a little bit of information this come from a guy on a different forum that works for baldwin filters. What kind of fuel pumps and injectors are on these trucks? Is it a cp3 pump, with bosch injectors?

I did some looking and really couldn't find a whole lot of info. I do know that the factory setup has two filters. A primary and a secondary. I found some data in our baldwin network that shows the OE filters are absolute at just under 10 microns for the secondary and about 7 for the primary. The Baldwin secondary is absolute at 6 microns. So not much difference. The Baldwin does have a ton more capacity though. OE is about 17 grams of capacity and the Baldwin has 33 grams of capacity.

So in the real world the only significant difference is capacity.

If imnot mistaken the filter up on top the engine is 2 micron. The racor filters are the same as motorcraft because they make motorcraft for ford. And from what i read use only motorcraft(racor) with the factory system.

In my experience, the Racor filters are cheaper than the Motorcraft, at least in Canada.
