Bought a couple of K&N oil filters for my 455 Buick, box said Nascar Performance made in USA, filter had Made in CHINA.
Fitted one and had double the correct warm idle pressure (Restrictive filter!)
Emailed the supplier with pics and got a full refund.
Managed to track down a Wix supplier in my capital city Brisbane, as they arent readily available here local, he couriered me two Wix filters, oil pressure back to normal🙂

Been using K&N for quite some time, on my HDs and now on my CC. Never had a failure or problem that could be even remotely linked to the filter. For the couple bucks more than WIX, I'll stay with what I know works.

I wonder if the Filtron in the UK is the XP Wix in the USA...

Maybe there was some kind of patented name issue so they had to call it something else. If this is the case then the Filtron Wix would need to be used with synthetic oil just like the XP filters.

I agree; stick with the original Wix. The Filtron may be too restrictive for semi-synth oil.

Careful; that's the wrong part number. The last two numbers are reversed. The correct link for these 12 filters is below.

WIX 51356 Case of 12

The good news is those will still work. They are a match with the 51356 filters.

Not sure what the difference is. Probably not much if any.

If I remember correctly - which at my age who knows, I believe I read that the only difference was in the length of the filter, one is just a tad longer than stock. Thanks for the catch...

I run the longer filter, just because. More surface area, more capacity has to be better. Same reason I run a FL1 on my dodge instead of the half sized one. So if you have an Oreilys their store brand filters are made by Wix. I try to stay with either the Wix or Oreilys, I used purolators for a long time but they changed the thread on part and on the RSV at least the filter will not draw down enough to seat.
I will not run a fram on anything, not even the mower. I was working in a Dodge deal and we got a TSB that specifically not to use fram filters on the 5.9 diesels as they were coming apart and the materials were getting into the oil pumps and starving the pump. We had a 4.7 that spun bearings out and lo and behold fram filter.

I did a couple searches and my take away was: as long as the filter meets you vehicle spec IE: drainback/non-drainback, pressure relief valve/spring and micron filter size. It dont make no never mind. A better filter (higher % @ lower micron) is basically an upgrade.
