    Up until a couple of years ago I never heard of a problem with a Wix filter. Now recently I have heard quite a few especially in the last few months. Mann and Hummel apparently has done them any justice since taking them over.

    Cummins 5.9 oil filters - Wix vs Baldwin - cut open

    I have always like Baldwin/Hastings filters. We used them for years in the trucking fleet with out issue....I think although Wix is also OK that Baldwin/Hastings always had a overall feeling of being more heavy duty

    Wix 57002 or OEM Made in Thailand?

    I have been using the Wix 57002 and it is just fine...I had a scare when it looked like the louvers were closed so I cut it open and it was just fine....

    Powerstroke 6.7: Motorcraft 2051s vs Wix/Napa 7151

    That NAPA Gold media looks like a Platinum media. As far as this filter goes, it looks like the Motorcraft isn't in the same league as Wix.
