I used a Supertech ST-2 filter.
Why? How much money will you save during your ownership of the car buying that filter vs. the FL820S on the next shelf? At my local WM, the FL820S is $3.50; I have NO IDEA what any other filter costs.

I...bought the ST-2 because my Walmart's shelf had NO Motorcraft oil filters in stock.
That doesn't make sense. If they hadn't had any ST2s, would you have bought a Minwax stain can, stuffed it with rags, & used that???

There's the RIGHT part; and then there's everything else. I'd only buy the right part - PERIOD. If this store doesn't have it, try that store. Or order it online & wait for the RIGHT part. Another week of driving the old oil isn't nearly as bad for the engine as the WRONG filter could be.
