Fram is owned by the Rank Group of New Zealand. Their cheapest are pretty junky. Their better ones are good, but overpriced compared to others. WIX are good. So is Hiflo HF138. No, oil filters are not all the same. A defective oil filter will ruin an engine...not common but possible. I'd rather save a coupl'a dollars on something with a less costly downside.
