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

I never bothered to check the part numbers for authenticity.
You mean to tell me he got one of the part numbers wrong too ?
