Went to napa to pick up an oil filter today, was going to go P1 but they only had Napa products. So I got the "top of the line" napa filter, which is a "gold". From what it says on the box seems like a quality filter. I'm running it with Mobil 1 EP and was going to run a 7-8k oci in my honda, will the filter be up to the task?

Napa golds are very good filters, made by Wix. Will easily go 7-8k.

If it's the 1334, it's a pretty solid oil filter, IMO. Good for mid-tier grade filters, not top of the line, but isn't extremely far off. IMO, closer to top quality than entry level stuff.

It's probably the Napa Gold 1356 which is the same as the WIX 51356. Very good filters. The main complaint is the thread-end bypass which results in less filtering media area. But for all practical purposes and in typical uses that won't make any difference.

+1 Good filter! EXACTLY the same as the Wix as BarlowC said.

I have run NAPA Gold for 7,500 miles on a regular basis for years now. Seems perfectly fine!

The Wix/NAPA Gold filters are top of the line popular-priced filters - and well worth the extra couple of dollars over the cheapies in my opinion. Wix is a very old brand. In fact, I believe they invented the spin-on type filter long ago.

Solid filter, that one. Could I use that on my Civic instead of the 1334? Looks like better filtration ratings.

The only problem I see with NAPA Gold filters and Mobil 1 EP in combination is if you hate your car and DON'T want it to run to high mileage.
