baldwin filters

Ive always used motorcraft filters and did all the changes on my truck myself, at least in the last two years I owned. I know everyone says use motorcraft, but I can get Baldwin cheaper. the fuel and oil filters look like the same thing. I heard they are an excellent product. what do you guys think????

I use a Baldwin filter for the water separator on my airdog. I also use it as a coolant filter and bypass tranny filter. Not sure about using it in the stock housing tho.

If I were in your situation I would buy the baldwin's and compare them to the motorcraft filters. The biggest issue I was aware of comparing aftermarket market filters to OEM was the membrane on the water separater and the height of the oil filter. If all those check out then I wouldn't see a problem running them. I just order my fuel filters from dieselfiltersonline.com, my local autozone carries the motorcraft oil filter.

We use the Baldwin oil filter and fuel filter kit in my dad's 6.4 granted he is very meticulous on 5k oil change and 10k fuel in the summer and winter time we change the fuel filter every time the oil is changed. No problems yet but he only has 53,XXX on his job 2 08
