You know when push comes to shove, you could use any decent oil, and any decent filter, change it every 2 to 3k miles and run the motor forever.

In other words, I have never heard of failure because of a cheap oil or filter.....failures come from negelect or catastrophic failure of a filter component.....a very rare thing.

Agreed. With the exception of Fram filters.

Back in the 70's, Fram caused a multitude of Honda engines to burn up
due to lack of oil, and it was proven that the Fram filter caused the problem.

While I'd be willing to bet they have long since fixed the issue,
I saw too many of them kill engines and I have not trusted one since.
