Aftermarket fuel filter options?

Anyone know or try alternative fuel filters? I can get a really nice all stainless aftermarket inline filter for half of what the factory filter costs. Any reason to not go that direction instead?

Depends on what the stainless steel option has on the inside because you might have high performance one, but then on the other side you're killing your injectors. Just like a stainless steel oil filter.

I think it's the same as OEM, waiting for it to arrive.
