The Wix 51036 is the one to get. The xp version is not necessary.

I use the K & N service professional series from AutoZone for $5.99. The only downside is they have to be ordered ahead of time. I always order 3 or 4 at a time.

Purolater is one of the best off the shelf filters, and cheaper than Wix, Mobil One, K&N ect.

I use Purolator Pure One filters on everything that I can find the filter for. One of the best filters on the market.

From stuff I've read, the AC Delco filters are mediocre nowadays. I used to use them but don't anymore.

The filters I've used in recent years and would easily buy again were Wix 51036, NAPA Gold 1036 (same as the Wix, just rebranded), and PureOne PL24011.

I had bad luck with a Mobil-1 M1-201. The anti-drainback valve was apparently leaking, it wouldn't get oil pressure until at least 2 seconds after starting the car. I wasn't happy with that. I replaced it with a regular cheap Purolator filter and it got pressure faster, in about 1 second.
But the PureOne I'm using now gets pressure near instantly. So at least for this filter I'm sure it has a good ADBV.

As a lube tech, I have put lots of Bosch on cars. They are a good filter, well made. But, I don't think they are worth the $12+ for them. The $4 Purolater is just nearly as good, if not on par with the Bosch.

Same here.

About WIX, ask your parts store when WIX has their yearly sale, WIX had about 2 months a year where they are almost half price, I buy a box of them at that time.

You can't go wrong with Purolator PureOne or Wix/Napa Gold. Either will work well and filter your oil reliably. I use Purolator PureOne and run some of my non-Fiero cars to the factory recommended 7500 miles.

I really like the Fram filters, good quality, as well as a non-slip coating on the end of the filter (whichs makes getting them off much easier!). I use the part number PH3980 (which is the larger capacity size), or you can also go with Fram's "Tough Guard" heavy duty filter, part number TG3980.

Unfortunatley, Fram is one of the worst brands on the market. Their filters you cardboard end caps that fall apart over time, also I don't think they have an ADBV. The Fram Ultra is a different story.

I always use Napa Gold (rebranded Wix), very impressed with their build quality and not expensive. Between $4-6 usually depending on the application.

Also nice that they are manufactured just down the street in Gastonia, NC.

I like Wix also. Local stores get $6.50 + Tax for them.
I ordered 6 51036 and 6 51515 off the web for $4.10 ea shipped to my door.
