Default LS engine oil filter options

The pan I am installing uses a Delco PF47 oil filter. [Chevy muscle car crate motor pan] What oil filter are some of you installing on your LS race engines?

A lot of the LS powered cars I've worked on have been using billet screen filters from K&P [not K&N] instead of the conventional paper filters . They are very compact .
I believe Ray Barton is a dealer.

Do not use Wix filters I have had numerous collapse all have sent to Wix, Rep came to my home picked up the filters ,to be shipped Wix to be analyzed ,they were shipped back to me sent me, and sent me letter there was nothing wrong, just one small thing I cut all the filters apart before the Rep arrived to show him how the filters had collapsed before he took them he told me because I cut them apart there was little Wix could do , one could see it had collapsed with little or no oil flow Zero

K&P Filter
We keep these in stock at SDPC Raceshop, best filter we have found.
We keep them with No-Bypass and with the By-Pass.

I used the Wix Xp 57060XP on my LS 3 this is the bad filter
Also PF48E
I am now using the K&N 2011 I call K&N the Guy told me that this filter was only made for Walmart , it has a higher flow using it now , no issue's so far
