Wix 51348 In Place of 57035, Kawasaki 49065-7007?

I have a Bob-Cat zero turn mower with a Kawasaki FX600V. It has the Kawasaki 49065-7007 oil filter on it now. It has 35 hours on it. I found that the Wix 57035 is the correct spec from Wix. The 51348 is half the cost, filters better, is larger, has silicone ADBV, etc. Any reason to run or not run the Wix 51348?

No problem, as long as you have room for the taller/longer filter it's the way to go. Happens often with the outdoor equipment, lawn and garden filters. Spec because of limited application is more expensive than better featured Wix/Napa Gold. Same thing happens with Kohler engine filters, I've done the same. Go for it.
