To avoid any problems if you have internal engine problems use a Motorcrat filter until the warranty expires. After that use a Purolator Pure One filter. Legally you can use any filter you want, but, I have seen dealers make claims of the filter causing engine damage and refusing to pay warranty claims if you do not use the OEM filter. So to be safe use a Motorcraft filter for now.
