Bit of a dilemma here, as far as an '04 Lancer is concerned with a 1.6L inline 4 engine. The OEM filter for this application is a Mitsubishi MD136466 filter, and the WIX equalivant is the 51381:
Since all Mitsubishi filters use a 20 x 1.5mm thread size, and I previously made a bulk purchase of WIX 51334 filters, that was what I installed for this application:

Will the 51334 be alright, or should I replace it with an OEM? I don't think I will be able to find a 51381. Any input will be appreciated, thank you!
