Shy away from K&N as well. I have seen multiple ruptures since they stopped using Hiflow as their manufacturer. I usually use the MC filter also.

I'm really not sure why Fram gets such a bad name that used to be all I ever used though not the orange ones the extra guard (mostly because the grip made it easy to do a filter bare handed lol). My 7.3L only got fram and standard rotella oil. Now with my 6.7L I've used fram, motorcraft, and right now I've got a rotella filter in. Personally change interval is the only thing that matters when it comes to a filter. The high end filters sure you can probably stretch your interval, but then again as people have stated the 6.7L engine is well over $10k is it really worth pushing to 10,000 miles just to save a few bucks in oil? I change every 5,000 miles with T6 I'm not risking anything and I'm almost to 290k miles burning zero oil.

I think it was because a lot of their filters started getting cardboard caps to which the media was glued. My dad used them exclusively on everything from cars to trucks and boats. So did I until I saw the inside of one that was built as described above.
