Any Z9 will do. Replacement or OEM. To me their all the same without dramas. As long as you do regular oil change, your oil filter shouldn't be a problem no matter what brand.

Oil filters get replaced fairly often so it doesnt really matter to be honest, just get whatever, they all do the same job

I'm sure Motorcraft oil filters are a tad dearer?...even so, I rather buy my stuff from one place rather then chase cheaper items :D. Efficiency people :P

+1 have used K&N before, no noticable difference.

The motorcraft ones still have to exceed oem spec, so where they are made is of no concern, they could be filtering with the hair from 1000 virgins for all I care. as long as it does the job it is intended to do.

When you say the motorcraft ones exceed OEM spec, do you mean they are better than the aftermarket ones?
