The factory filter is made by Donaldson and is a great filter. Changing it just for the sake of change makes no sense and most of the claims from the aftermarket are pure hype with no credible facts to back them up. Eben if they are better, Ford won't support it.
I would love to replace the exhaust on my truck but I won't touch it until the warranty is over. The 2 EGR coolers, 2 EGR values a set of Head gaskets, a MAP sensor, MAF sensor and everything else I have forgotten would likely have been on my tab if I had started throwing aftermarket parts at it.
I won't replace so much as a bolt on my engine that isn't from Ford due to the engine being under warranty until April 2012. I am not willing to make it easy for them to bail on me.
