Bosch filters are stocked by the local Autozone.
I saw the same thing. I do believe that all the
filters, no matter what branding they carry, so
long as they have that one larger hole for the
outlets, they are made by Champion ??? A few
years back, AC PF56's were my filter. There were
two versions. A USA and a UK made. Anyway, they
had great filtering area, media was good, bypass
springs, but don't know if at the correct
pressure, and a very thick and heavy case.
Afterward, GM sold off the name and they went
the Champion route, too.

Not sure if the top of the line Frams are any
good, but they cost more than the OEM filters,
by about $4, so why not stick with the good
stuff? I've noticed that my oil pressure has
improved, and the oil has a transparancy to it
that the other filters don't allow for when I
drain it out. Don't know if they're related. I
run synth only and do 5k mile change intervals.
