My opinion is.........if you are in doubt, stick with what came with the car. There are so many threads on oil and filters. In the long run, if you do regular maintenance on your vehicle, most brand name products will work properly and keep your car running smoothly.

I used an ACDelco filter on my 2nd oil change. IMO, its not doing real well as I've only driven about 2k miles since then and my oil is relatively brown (I use Pennzoil Platinum).
I would highly recommend Bosch oil filters. They seemed to have done a good job on the Toyota Sequoia my family has.

that comes up as a canister filter not for your car. K&N oil filter catches 10 micron. all others are 20

What is the application? Os that their house brand? Never heard of it. Also, that isn't a Camaro filter. If you want to dive off the deep end with your filter research, go to BITOG.

If you just want a good oil filter for your Camaro at a good price, I buy 'em here by the case for $4.03+ship. Check out the comparison of physical features vs the OE AC Delco. Lots of cost saving features in the latter. It is considered a cheaply made filter.
