I would stay away from Fram personally. I've seen plenty of cases of these filters in all kinds of engines where the internal filter media comes apart and starts going through the oil stream. Not a pretty picture after a while.
I stick to PuroOne myself. Best bang for the buck IMHO.
Napa Gold(made by Wix) Fram have had issues of coming apart.

having problems with low oil pressure the gauge and sending unit seem to be ok so I put a mech gauge on to see what I really had. It was not good!!! at idle (warm) it was 5-7 psi at around 2500 rpm I got about 30 psi. If I go ahead and change the oil pump should I get a standard or high volume? second question is while I am there should I do the main bearings because I can hear a little knock at idle.can the mains even be done with out pulling the crank.the motor only has 100 thou km or 60 thou miles
Couple of great oil filter reviews online if you Google "oil filter review", but they're all a couple years outdated now.
Amsoil and Wix seem to do well.
While Fram never earns high marks it's easier to find and I've yet to have a problem with the premium Frams. YMMV.
I've been using x2 as of late, and I'm seriously considering a high-end bypass system with remote-mounted filter just to see how well it performs. Haven't decided on the brand yet.
