Default oil filter question

Hey guys, just bought Castrol Full Syntec for the truck (oil change due) and was looking at the Fram oil filters ( I know some of you have different opinions, anywho....) I was looking through the the book and its says that the oil filer for the 4L would be a PH2 **** (i cant recall if the number are like 7940 or something of the sort) there was no PH2 ****, just PH2 with no extra numbers. I looked at the mustang 4L it just says PH2, just want to make sure that the PH2 of Fram should fit all 4L SOHC?

You don't need to worry about fancy filters for this engine. The way it sits doesn't require any kind of anti-drainback. So it's got a carbord ring at the bottom on the intake side of the filter element. It won't dissolve within the duration between changes.
I say this only because I got the oil change special at autozone which came with a discount on the exact oil I wanted and a free Fram toughgaurd filter. I was very difficult to discard the K&N filter and replace it with that fram thing. Oh well I'm over it.

I didn't know fram was fancy. Its just the oil filter I have put in all of my cars and never had an issue

I wasn't implying that Fram is fancy.

I've always used the Fram Tough Guard filters-they have a silicone anti-drainback valve.

The sohc does require an anti drain back filter because of the hydrolic timing chain tensioners need instant oil pressure when the engine is started.

My point is that the filter is oriented in a way will not cause it to drainback.

I'd just say screw the Fram filter and stick with a Ford filter I use that and I have AMS oil in my truck
