My 6s came with a Motorcraft FL-820S. What aftermarket filters are people using? I'm having problems finding a number for a K&N Filter. I believe an HP-2010 is the cross-ref for the FL-820S?

It should take the same filter as my wifes 02 MPV with the 3.0 Duratec DOHC V6, right?

Yep, same as an MVP. I used an STP. Read some reports over on Miata.net on Oil Filters and it was ranked very high. Price is reasonable also.

The Mobil 1 is a super filter, however it's flow rates concern me. I'm not sure I would want it on an engine that is seeing 5,500-6,000 rpm on a regular basis. The K&N filters almost as well, is made by Champion, and flows 16 gpm. Flow rate is critical IMO.
