The Motorcraft fl 400s have just about always looked great here when cut open after being run. I would use a Motorcraft fl 400s on my lady's 98 Camry with no question.

Best is a wide choice
There is no best, depends on the application

I also wanted to share I changed the oil last weekend. It had a valvoline e core. When I spun the filter off not much of hardly much oil came out. Which leaves me to believe that the anti drain back valve my not have been working as good. So these motorcraft fl400s are ok? I saw mr.Quakers cut open looks ok.So I may sleep at night now.

Ford isn't going to risk millions of dollars of warranty repairs by putting out a bad filter.

But haven’t there been pictures of torn filters?

I'd run the FL400S , great filter for the price.
Used to run FL910S and the FL400S on my old Pontiac Vibe .
Never had any tears and always looked great after 5K miles.

The FL820S was the biggest culprit of tearing.
The FL400S and FL910S have been shown to not really have this issue, but I personally won't buy any Purolator made filter due to their lack of response on filter tears.

The boss media is very stout, but there have been issue with ADV slices (but nothing definitive that it is actually an issue).

I purchase the fram tough guard for my Mazda no issues.I have cut them open no problems.how ever at wally world looking at the tg3600 for the ram there was no weight to the filter i was wondering if there is an actual filter element in it. So I chose the motorcraft. Yes I know not scientific at all please feel free to flame me.

I don’t believe a adv is necessary for the SkyActiv.

Another option are the Thailand made Roki filters.
