Cross referenced cheaper (in $) Oil Filter

Has anyone cross referenced a oil filter for the 6.7 yet or know why not to use a gas oil filter? I found a Fram Xtended Protection for synthetic oils. Same size and looking, internal an external. Yea or nay or any bad experiences doing this? Its $11 instead of $29.

Motorcraft FL-2051 $12.95 @dieselfiltersonline.com. I have not cross referenced another filter but I personally will only use Motorcraft brand.

I buy from Dieselfiltersonline also. For $12.95, why buy an imitation?

I get two oil filters, one fuel filter and one air filter each time I order.

There have been nothing but serious problems when guys cheaped out and bought non-OEM oil filters for the 6.0 so why take the chance with your truck? You have a $10G+ engine and your looking for the cheapest oil filter to slap in it? Good luck with that. LOL

Not looking for cheaper quality by any means. Stated that in the initial post. You twist the the filter on not " slap it in". Some gas motor oil filters, filter out smaller microns so it would actually be better an cheaper in price. I would just change it every 2500 miles instead of every oil change 5000 miles. the current one i found is $11 but instead of "saving money" like i said i would change more often leaving my motor cleaner then the "oem maintenance" program.

Nothing good ever happened from cheaping out and putting cheap stuff on your truck. Especially important stuff like filters.

Putting in a smaller micron oil filter in the stock location IMO is not a good idea. If you used a smaller micron filter in a remote setup where a larger size filter cartridge could be used then yes go ahead, but going to a smaller micron filter in the stock location is just going to increase the amount of oil that bypasses the filter during cold starts, colder weather and as it collects oil contaminants faster. So you'd actually be making things worse for engine wear. You can't really compare filters used on gas engines to what is used on diesel engines as the contaminate loading for diesels is much higher. If you don't want to put in a remote oil filter setup then just add a bypass oil filter setup such as one made by Amsoil then your filtering out contaminants down to two microns and more oil is going thru the regular oil filter because there isn't a higher differential pressure that causes the bypass valve to open.

not necessarily, in a lesser quality filter, you are probably right. But high quality filter manufacturers work extremely hard to ensure that the BVOP is consistent for the application specs. while flowing the correct GPM thru their filtering media at a verified test temperature. Pretty much an industry standard on testing conditions.
