Default Baldwin oil filter

Have any of you ever used Baldwin oil filter BT7349? I have always used Mopar filters cause I get them for about 14 bucks a filter. I have found a place that sells the Baldwin for 6 bucks.

How do they compare to the Fleetguard or Mopar filter?

Thanks,
Dwight

I have in the past used them, and have used them on the skidsteers. Good quality filters as we used to sell them at work for all off hi-way equipment.

Not a bad price, if its only costing you $6 out the door. But there is nothing really special about them, In filtration Baldwin is just as good as the Wix, Mopar, Fleetgaurd etc IMO. All have around a 25-30 micron rating. If you want the best filtration and longest lasting oil filter on the market for the Dodge Cummins its the AMSOIL Ea-80 / Donaldson ELF-7349 .

Both these filters have a Absolute filtration rating of 15 micron and are good for 25,000 miles/ 1yr whichever comes first.

I've realized in my old age that I could probably run any oil and any filter I can get my hands on, I've got a better chance of my truck being totaled by a dweeb on a cell phone than my engine wearing out...I do run Shell Rotella 5w-40 and Fleetguard Filters though

EXCEPT Fram

I started using Baldwin oil and fuel filters last year.
A little research showed that they filter better than Fleetguard.
A local fleet reportedly switched from Fleetguard to Baldwin and noticed fewer engine rebuilds etcc.

My Brother In-law swears by Baldwin fuel filters, he says they experience more Horsepower with his 600 horse Pete's pulling tankers up mountain roads.

IIRC the Fleetguard Stratapore oil filters are 25 micron and at one time Baldwin was 30-35 micron range and don't know if they have lowered it to match that of Fleetguard Stratapore.

Order of precedence for full flow oil filter.

1. Amsoil EaO80 or Donaldson ELF7349. Exact same media used inside.
2. Fleetguard Stratapore LF3894 or LF16035. Exact same filter except one has flutes on the end the other doesn't.
3. Baldwin BT7349
