While picking this up at the local Walmart at $25 for each 5-quart jug, I also picked up a Fram filter CH8081. This included an o-ring gasket, and a copper crush gasket for the drain plug.
EDIT: The Fram filter was wrong. So, I stopped by a parts store, and picked up what they had. It fit right, but cost a lot more than the Fram. I hadn't heard of Wix Filters. It took Wix 57327 with UPC 7 65809 57327 7.
I would trust a Wix filter waaaaaay more than the Orange Can of Death any day. Wix (or NAPA Gold, same thing) is a quality filter.
But what's your rationale behind going with a 20 weight oil?
