GM engineers their oil and air filters for specific conditions for each engine. Use of the filters ensure the warranty coverage remains, if the the maintenance schedule is followed. Until recently reduced, the power train warranty covered the engine for 100,000 miles.
Proper Oil Filter Replacement Helps Prevent Engine Damage
GM designs oil filters for for basic and super high performance engines (think of the various Corvettes and Cadillac V-series vehicles).
I am constantly amazed by people who question whether the GM filters are "good enough" and resort to aftermarket filters. I don't understand why people refuse to use OEM filters and resort to aftermarket filters. They will buy a GM vehicle but refuse to buy a GM filter.
Buy whatever filter you want - good luck.
