IMHO there are no good Fram filters...sorry . There is no good reason not to use a quality filter during break in, quite the opposite in fact. You want superior filtering during this critical period. If it were my engine I would use a Puralator Pure 1 or a Mobil 1 filter. If you are not willing to spend the bucks on either of those I would suggest the Puralator standard filter or a Wix.

I use Napa Gold exclusively myself, never had a problem. Napa Gold filters are Wix filters

I personally would be wary of the napa gold and the pure one oil filters, its been proven the finer particles they filter comes at the expense of a more restrictive filter. So you may just end up forcing the oil through the bypass when its cold.

Just food for thought.

I use the bigger Wix filter a little extra oil capacity never hurts as long as your crank isn't sloshing through it anyways.

Use the NAPA gold as posted earlier and plug your oil filter bypass and ALL your oil will be filtered going to the bearings.
