Purchased 2 Wix filters last year,# 51040. when they arrived 1 was made in USA and the other made in China ! We use Wix on a fleet I work on and more of the filters are coming made in China. Look at what all the crate motors and Copos come with. Delco Blue. The Wix XP have more pressure drop across the filter. Just an observation.

Note this list says "majority made in the US"
All I can say is read the box yourself.

We got our LS1 K&P filter from Scoggin Dickey, it came with socket installation tool and had free shipping. Also we had it in 2 days. They also had a great price. Tom

Never had a Wix filter failure on any vehicle that we have used from gas to diesel engines. These are trucks, RVs, street cars, and race cars, but we don't run street filters on our race cars either. We only use the "R" code Wix filters for our race cars.

There is a difference.

NAPA Gold series of oil filters are also made by Wix.
As Kyle Ratcliff (Master Sheep Husbandry Expert), shares he does, I also use Wix on every application and never had an issue either.

The Streetcar Wix filters are 21 micron where the "R" Race filers are 61.Race filters let more particles thru, but flow more and are designed for race application's. I think those Wix Race filters were originally developed for the Busch Series Cup cars back in the 80's and then later released to the general public..

I run the Moroso 21151 pan and a K&N HP 1017 filter I really like being able to take it off with a socket and ratchet.
Does the KP have the hex on the bottom? Does it flow better than the K&N?
BTW great article in ND few yrs ago with David Rehr saying more concerned with flow than filtration on a race engine.
