    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.
