Are you going with fully synthetic or partially synthetic?

If you are including partially synthetic, the Fram extra guard and tough guard should be added to the list.

Also, Amsoil = Royal Purple.
Royal Purple makes Amsoil filters and they are identical accept for color.

Amsoil EAO filters have synthetic media. The EAK line is not synthetic media from the cutaways I have done but they are still one [censored] of a filter without the synthetic media.

The non-synthetic look like Wix internally. The EAO look like Donaldson.

Wix XP = Napa Platinum.

Donaldson with Synteq media, Fleetguard Stratopore Microglass.

Toyota TRD.

And here's a thread showing some new, cut open. M1 in link not full synthetic. As noted RP and Amsoil excluding RP purple adbv, look the same.

Royal Purple does not make Amsoil's filters.
Royal purple does not make their own filters.
Royal Purple and Amsoil have Champion Labs make their filters (some of Amsoil's filters are Baldwin made). They are similar but Amsoil specs a different media.

NAPA Platinum and WIX XP have synthetic media. They're the same filter.

It's not actually wire, as in metal. It's a nylon mesh material.

The Baldwin HPG (and MPG in limited sizes) are another full synthetic filter.
