    Oil Filter Preference

    I see lots of posts on which oil to use, and which weight to use, but what is everybody using for a filter? I've seen cheap ass one's for 3 bucks and some name brands for about 20 bucks. I kinda believe that you get what you pay for but that doesn't mean I want to go throwing money away. Ideas??

    Wix makes the Napa Gold filters. I have a Mobile 1 because it was cheap 6qts of Penz. Plat. and M1 filter for $30. But I hear Napa gold/Wix are awesome!
