NAPA filters are Wix filters rebranded. They are the same thing. A NAPA part number is a Wix number with the leading digit knocked off. So a 51348 becomes a 1348

Ya I new they were made by some good filter company, could'nt remember if it was wix, or purolator=also good filters.

Yes...... when I was looking for my "Hydro filter", I talked tjo WIX and their filter was rated at 19 microns, while the stock Hydro filter spec was only 40 microns. Naturally, I went for the NAPA filter which is a WIX..........

Wix, Fleetguard, and Baldwin all cross-reference each other and any other manufacturer on their web sites. They are the only brands I bother with because they are high quality and they carry a full line to fit anything. Wix has a reputation as the lowest of the three but I use them because they are easy to get.

Of the types listed:

Fram-poor quality, I never use them
STP-they are an oil additive manufacturer, somebody else makes the filters
AC Delco-probably not a full line and tend to be pricey but high quality
Lesco- ???
Motorcraft-same as AC Delco
Purolator- ???
Wal-Mart-See STP.
