whats the better filter in general ?

I went from K&N to the (gold) puralator when K&N's prices shot through the roof, but I'm thinking of going to the NAPA golds.

I don't do any "hard" driving these days or hard offroading, just basically daily driver stuff, with no extreme temps here in PA

So again,
what filter is generaly a better made filter ?
or better for my application ?

4.0 and the 5.2 are the motors in question.


puralator- PL14670
NAPA gold- FIL 1085

If you are not doing any hard driving, off road or otherwise, then any quality filter you choose will last you for at least a normal OCI (5000-6000 miles easy).

No reason to pay for a premium filter unless you begin to do really really long OCI's with premium synthetics. I'd put this at 15,000-20,000 miles.

In my opinion a well made well fitting Air Filter is more important than a oil filter, but that is only on a well maintained engine.

BTW, I run Motorcraft filters on my 2 fords (inexpensive at China Mart), and I run a Napa Gold on my Nissan.

I would prefer the NAPA gold over purolator, seems to have a better construction, albeit, both are fine. I actually use Baldwin filters because of the racy red color andthey are as high of quality as NAPA gold, which is a Wix.

P1s are so much cheaper at AAP + Purolator's rebates than NAPA Gold, which is never under $5, even on sale-sounds like an easy choice to me.

thats complete oposite of the truth in my area, AAP has the pure-ones for 6.50-7 and nappa golds are 6 flat, ive never seen the gold puralator on sale either unless it's paired up with some kind of dinno oil.

Give you an example-the SB Chevy/6.2/6.5 diesel ones are normally $5.23-40% with a $50 order, and there is a $3 rebate on them as well (limit 4)=under $1 each. Unfortunately some of the P1s are higher.

IMO...You could also continure to use the K&N filter on your vehicle. Cost should not be a primary consideration since they are still reasonable.

They are so well made that you can keep the one filter on for a couple of OCIs as long as your engine is clean. You can get these K&N on Oil Change Specials at Advance Auto or Auto Zone. So cost should not be a factor.

I've also used both the NAPA Gold and the Pure One Filters and both are also outstanding filters.

Of course ... there is data that shows the PureOne has a better filtering efficiency than the WIX/NAPA Gold.

PureOnes state it right on the box, and Wix's internet website has a different efficiency rating listed for each filter

PureOne is rated at 99.9 @ 20 microns. WIX/NAPA Gold is more like 90~95% @ 20~30 microns. As was said above, the beta ratio listings for WIX vary, but in general the efficiency is worse than the PureOne claim.

Get the cheaper one. We're talking about the 4.0 and 5.2. Both pretty much bullet proof designs.

Heck I ran the [censored] orange can Frams in my 4.0 for 50K before I knew better. The thing is closing in on 200K without any consumption.
