Everything I ever wanted to know about oil filters and more...

So I am intrigued by the "use a FL400S" line and did a little reading over at "Bob the Oil Guy" site...
So the filters which are the same as the MotorcraftFL400S which get good marks are: (Same size 'specs')

Motorcraft FL400S the longer bigger fitment of a Motorcraft substitute
(this from ?? I would know if my search would show him But naturally fruitless searching does not find his byline nor whom i seek. Finally bumped into him!) Wavsine is the member with the byline of using the FL400S:""Use a Motorcraft FL-400S filter to increase filtration media and oil quantity. (Drop in for FL-910S)""

Then the other replacements for the FL400S:
Fram Ultra XG3600
Mobil 1 M-1 209
Bosch Distance D3422
Bosch 3422 (regular Bosch)

Hah going filter insane here...

Now all I have to do is try each one and then cut them open and do some inspection.. (they all already did that for me over at Bob the Oil Guy's site..)
Maybe have some sort of multiple engine testing with each brand and OEM size vs the larger Fl400S size

PS the current Fl400S is SMALLER than it used to be, and most of the other brand replacements are the original taller size)

Here are the stock filter and it's substitutes:
Motorcraft 910S stock filter
Bosch 3330
Bosch distance D3330
Mobil 1 M-1 102
Fram Ultra XG3614
The stock Motorcraft still gets big points for being a good filter at a reasonable price for the oil filter mavens..
