I like OEM's. They are cheap and my local dealer gives me a deal if I buy a bunch of them at once. :D

Purolator but not the stock one since I have an oil filter adapter that for some reason uses one for a DSM engines.

I only use K&N oil filters. For my friends that want cheaper filters I usually recommend STP, Wix, or Purolater filters.

Many many moons ago there was a post here (or maybe Redline) no... it was here... that extolled the virtues of using a different filter to that prescribed by the manual or any equivalent. The oil filter off of a ford Mustang (V01 filter in my world) has the same thread fitting and seal size but it is an ENORMOUS filter. It adds almost a litre to the capacity of the engine and I suspect, due to its size, means oil can pass through the filter more easily. I have used these for years with no hassles to date.

So, big filter:
more oil
better flow
better cooling..

but the choice is yours....
