Ford MC on a Ford. Maybe a drain plug magnet or filtermag to help. Fram Ultra or TG on Honda as Fram is Honda OEM

Note that about a decade or so ago, Ford Motorcraft FL-400S used to have a longer canister. Some other cross reference filters still produce the filter with the taller canister. Just a little bit more filter media & capacity, if that is important to you. AD Delco PFL400ACS uses the taller canister. I also ran across the Bosch Work Shop which has a taller canister. Depending on fitment, some people have even used the Ford Motorcraft FL-1A, which is a larger filter with the same 3/4-16 thread.

I have seen a bad FL400S cut open on this board.

Wow.ok. So if I have room the motorcraft fl-1a is a direct cross reference to my fl400s. And the cross reference to the fl-1a to the fram tough guard would be the tg8a. I could in theory use that big beast.or better yet the fram xg8a?

Only if you have room, and it fits. Same thread pitch doesn't mean that the filter will fit up to the oil pump. The canister is taller, and has a larger diameter.

Fram Ultra is probably the best for the money, but I run the orange Frams personally. Never use a filter long enough to justify an Ultra! But they are excellent filters and priced very competitively for a synthetic media/wire backed filter.

Ok also the fl-1a has a larger diamater so if the backing plate that it's screwing on to has to be wide enough for it. I see.

Another option are the Thailand made Roki filters.

I'm pretty sure the Thai made filters from the dealer are made by denso. They look nearly identical to the Thailand made denso Toyota filters and have similar marking on the box.

The threads are the same, it just has to fit. For instance, on the Cherokee in my sig, the factory filter is a short Fram PH16 size, but the PH3600/FL400S fits, as does the FL1A/PH8A size. Just make sure there's enough room around them. On your Valvoline Ecore ADBV, that's a common flaw with black nitrile ADBVs, especially on Purolator made filters-engine heat stiffens them & they quit sealing-I've had Quaker State filter ADBVs quit inside of 2000 miles before!
