Just wondering if anyone has any facts on the the OEM style air filter for a 6.0L. The Wix filter is about half the cost of the Ford filter at O'Reilly. I wonder if there is any difference in quality.

Donaldson "Relative Efficiency" - 99.97 (Ford states 99.99% removal of particles 1 micron and larger PLUS holds 2.5 - 3 lbs (1200 gms) of dirt).

Specs below - clearly some of it is advertisement:

This study does not have the PowerCore in it, but you can see where WIX rates:
