I use Valvoline/Cummins Blue 15w40 and NAPA Gold filters. Fleetguard and Donaldson are good filters also.

Dont use a FRAM. I've heard it will suck the paper filter material out of it...I use Mopars. I think im goin to change to Amsoil later tho, with a by-pass filter kit

X2, I've never cared for their stuff...

Shell Rotella T + 2qts of Lucas oil Treatment or me and pretty much any good filter that is not a FRAM (Mostly WIX or FleetGuard).

Amsoil Ea is what I use. On my ol' 91 Cummins I used several - Napa gold, Mopar and Wix. It has plenty plenty miles on it without any problems. Do your research because they are all not created equally. :thumbsup

I use Rotella T 5w-40 synthetic with WIX filters because wix makes the majority of the oil filters out there i think but i don't know if there is a bad filter, i've used FRAM in my old gassers and my 4 wheeler, because polaris wants like $15 for a tiny filter, i've never had bad luck with them but i don't know i just don't trust anything that only costs $4 on a $10,000 engine then again it probably doesn't matter i'm just paranoid.
