I am just wondering which oil filter you consider the "best" if price wasn't a concern. I believe that a Wix XP is the best oil filter on the market, but what do you think?

A centrifuge, complete with air system to run it. Who cares if it's $2,000?

Wix XP is a robust filter, but i'ts efficiency ratings are not the greatest. This has been beat to death. Google BITOG best oil filter!

Fram Ultra (best value, best efficiency ratings)
Amsoil EAO filters (awesome)
Royal Purple

The word "best" is subjective. Depends on your application and environmental conditions.

Good hunting!

I like both kinds of filters; Fram Ultra and Fram Ultra.
