I dont do my own oil changes. I have no control over hwat the oil place uses. As long as I change my oil and filter as directed I see no harm.

If you want the best oil filter for your engine, use Hastings. They build all their oil filters to military specs and they have the best filtration media of any oil filter in the market. Hastings also manufactures the oil filters for Amsoil.

I think the blended celluose, synthetic fiber and glass media Amsoil uses is different from the Hastings design....The average pleat count i think is higher as well.

The other internal parts look the same to me, for example both filters use a coil spring and not a clicker for the bypass valve. The Amsoil filters may also use a thicker canister, but I haven't cut one open yet to find out.

Also If you look at SAE H806 oil filter test data for the Hastings filters and i don't
have it at the moment , you'll see they are step down from the Amsoil and Mobil 1 product lines. To be fair, they are also quite a bit less expensive.
