Hello All,

It has been a good while since I've posted here.

I recently picked up an '06 F150 King Ranch and it runs very good. In reading about the FL820s filter, it appears that it had some quality issues in the past.

My preference is to stick with OEM for this truck, but does anyone know if those issues are still present with the FL820s?

Also, what other options do I have with regards to oil filters in the event that the FL820s is still having issues?

Wix 51372 instead of FL820S.

I ve used a multitude of oil filters on my daughter's Ford FX2 with the 5.4 including the Fram XG2/ TG2 and Motorcraft 820s plus several no name Chinese filters with no difference in start up noise or any noise.
I think that is a bunch of hype on how this engine is filter sensitive.

I agree with the NAPA Gold 1372/ WIX 51372, XG/TG2, as well as even some of the cheap, made in China filters out there.
I have an Ecogard X4651 ($2 from Walmart.com) on mine now.
I was not crazy about the ST2 I had on before.

It is not about noise, it is about the Purolator made Motorcraft 820s having tearing issues.

Agree! Get distanced from torn Purolator/Motorcraft. Stay far away!

Correct. All I care about is making sure I am not complicit in grenading my engine. It runs really, really good and I would like to keep it that way.

Fram Ultra XG2. I used this when I had my 5.4 3v. Be start up noises and I could sleep well at night knowing that it wasn’t going to tear like a motorcrap.
