Default Oil Filter recommendation

I need to know what the best oil filter is for the merc 525's. I have M1 15/50 syn oil I'll be using. Had a hard time locating the oil. I've heard good stuff about the M1 and WIX filters. Part numbers would be great too

What took you so long? Got any part numbers for the NAPA filter? Just picked up the 15/50 synthetic at Wally's. I went to 15 different stores before I found it, and I took the very last quart!

I've always used the mobil red cap 15/50 (that apparently is no longer available) and the matching Mobil M1-302 filter. I've only been able to find that filter at Auto Zone.

Napa Wix Racing 1061R or 1060R (Not sure which fits, but they are the best on the market.)
