I believe your thinking of Fram. I've used Motorcraft filters for over 30 years and never had an issue, 11 of those years using them on a daily basis in a Ford dealership service department.

Baldwin makes great filters. Very popular in the heavy equipment/trucking industry. In my mind just as good as Fleetguard and Wix. I ran Baldwin fuel/oil filters in my Cummins for many years.

Baldwin makes excellent filters. I was reading a cut-apart comparison of several major name filters and Baldwin was the best made of the bunch. Motorcraft did have some 820S's slip through a year or so ago that weren't properly glued and the media was separating from the end cap. I don't know if that carried over to any others or not, but that's what got me doing my homework on filter construction. I also use them on the Cat motor in the KW.

Wink bypass oil

btw this filter does not have silicone adbv and shouldnt be run multiple cycles
your bypass relief works every time you crank up with cold engine oil. It is designed to relive whatever thick oil that can't go through the filter element and bypass around the filter on into the engine until oil is warmed up enough to thin out and flow through the element. remember dirty is better than no oil.
