Oil filter for PZEV

Hi guys,
I went down to Autozone to buy myself an oil filter for my new PZEV's first oil change, and they don't stock a Motorcraft filter. They carried a FRAM, but there is no way I'm going to use one of those.

I understand WIX makes a good one, and I can get those at NAPA for $8-12 depending on if it's "silver" or "gold" version.

Other than the dealership, who I'm sure are way overpriced, where can I get a motorcraft FL910?

Thanks,

-Jason

Wow, I'm suprised. I'll have to call my dealer to find out how much they want. I'm used to high prices at the dealership for everything. That's a good price, however.

I didn't even bother calling my dealership since the last part I got a quote from them on was a fuel filter for my Escape. They wanted $20 for it. I got it online for $10.50, $3.00 shipping.

Would be good if I could order one online, though. I would order a bunch.

Thanks,

-Jason

$7.04 is suggested list price on an FL910 oil filter. I bought a case when I couldn't find them after market in stock, and they all wanted like 8-12bux.

Im using a K & N hp-1002 filter for mine. Working great. It even has a socketed end so that a 1" socket wrench can fit over it to get it of easier. Cost me 9.50 at kragen, so its not the best deal, but K&N is supposed to be good so...
