Which Baldwin oil filter? 07 5.9

I searched the site and found two Baldwin oil filters for an 07 5.9. Which one of these two performs better and is it worth the price difference. Also what change interval is everybody using. I'm also running Rotella with it

bt7349 or the bd7317

bt7349 is a full flow filter

bd7317 is a full flow and bypass all-in-one filter

Here is a great comparison on DTR between the BD7317 and Fleetguard LF9028. The Baldwin is easily inferior to the Fleetguard. Consensus on dual flow oil filters (Baldwin 7317) - Dodge Diesel - Diesel Truck Resource Forums

I thought Baldwin oil filters were supposed to be as good as their fuel ones. So which brand then that doesn't break the bank ? How about the dealer mopar one. Because $45 for a filter is a big ouch

Another good option is the donaldson elf7349...if you google it you will find it online for 13 bucks plus shipping...great value for a 15 micron absolute filter.

This is the best available for the OEM filter locations. Donaldson ELF7349 or Amsoil EaO80 oil filter and Baldwin PF7977 fuel filter.

Exact same media is inside. Donaldson owns the patent and Amsoil has a manufacturing license with Donaldson to make the media themselves. Donaldson calls it SynTeq and Amsoil calls it NanoFiber.

A truck or heavy equipment store might have them but they might not have the ELF line at every location.
