From what I read the Cat filter is the best.

I have been running the Racor PFF 50216 fuel filter available from several vendors on here. Due to the fact I run AMSOIL in the motor, I also run their EA 052 oil filter. The little red tranny filter is always Allison OEM. Been almost 3 years now and no problems with any of them. Contact one the vendors on here, they will fix you up. NE-MAX, dirtbikindad and mr manners on here are all good to deal with.

IF you have the adapter and delete the WIF. Of course there are add-ons and the built in filters in the Air Dog.

But for a replacement without add-on's I'll stick with the Racor (Maker of the OEM filter)
