I thought the 2.0T called for 5W30?

Anyway, I always buy Wix or Mobil 1 brand filters. I avoid the factory replacement ACDelco filters because they are low quality e-core manufactured with lower tier FRAM products. I was really disappointed by that change because ACDelco filters used to be fantastic quality and bang for the buck.

UPF-__R filters are manufactured by Mobil1 last I checked bobistheoilguy. I use UPF-48R when the price is lower than the Mobil1 branded filter.

The PF-64 is hit or miss. Some of them are old stock of good filters, some of them are plastic e-core. Most ACDelco e-cores say "e" like PF-48e, but they chose to do the PF-64 differently.
