1997 Mitsubishi 3000GT Question: Manufacturer's Oil Filter?

I had thought I had heard in the past that the oil filter for my car should only be replaced by the manufacturers' oil filter. True? I had heard it was specifically made for my car. Can I just go to Firestone or some place like that and have them put on any filter they say fits my car? Please advise. Thanks, RM -
Answer 1
Everyone has there own preference. The filter designed by the manufacturer of course meets manufacturer specification. An American manufacturer called Wix makes great filters. Consumer Reports did a test on filters some faired better than others. I dislike Fram and some cheaper filters as they don't seem to have the same filtration that other filters claim to have. -
