What is the current recommendation and why?
Does the Wix bypass make a big difference during startup?

Both are great filters that are good for a long OCI. Just choose the one with the better price.

The Fram Ultra has that textured grip end to make it easy to remove at the end of the OCI smile

If I was Bill in Utah, I'd change the thread title to:

Fram Ultras are 99%[email protected] microns and the Wix XP are 50% @20.... Not a hard choice

I never bothered to check the part numbers for authenticity.
