I would like to know if Wix makes any other filter, other than the Napa Gold, as their Wix equivalent. I realize that there are some filters out there (Microguard by Oreilly) that are the equivalent of the ProSelect or Napa Silver---I am asking specifically about the NG/Wix equivalent filter.


Are there any others out there?

Well if you could get them to give you a real efficiency rating on them you could make an informed guess!

Afaik other than noted Napa Gold, currently there is no other equivalent to the standard Wix labeled filter. If there is one, it will be the first time I've heard it. IME the Napa Gold form can be had for less cost, when on sale locally for significantly less than Wix labeled.

Walmart Supertech is basically a NAPA Gold but with a nitrile ADBV.

Supertech might be more comparable to a NAPA Silver or Pro Select; not sure which.

And of course Walmart won't be using Wix forever.

Pretty sure it's the latter, cheaper one. No way in heck would it be a Gold but obviously that's just logical speculation.

Correct. Napa Gold/(Wix) uses more efficient media, majority thread end bypass with silicone adbv.

SuperTech filters a Wix made for WM value/jobber tier filter. Less efficient media, some nitrile combo valves, some dome bypass with nitrile adbv. According to O'R published efficiency specs for MicroGard, same as the ST.

No, The Supertech is NOT a NAPA Gold/Regular Wix filter.
Supertech filters are the same as NAPA Pro-Select and Oreilly Microgard (as well as a few others) filters.


CarQuest Blue filters used to be the regular Wix/NAPA Gold filters, but not for the past 2+ years (CQ are now Purolator made).

The keyword being "basically." There's got to be something that the Walmart Supertech shares with the NAPA Gold. How about the baseplate inlet hole diameters? Maybe even the baseplate gasket dimensions?

What makes you say that? Wix makes a cheaper line and most likely the Supertech filter is one of those.

So basically a Ford Festiva is about the same as a Ford Mustang because they may share a few parts or have similar measurements???

The Wix/NAPA Gold have different media, ADV, bypass valve type, can thickness and possibly different base plate filter and baseplate construction.
Aside from being made by Wix, that is all we can say is similar.
