Default air filter recommendations?

Went to the RA website to order replacement Wix air filters, and found they are NA.
Anyone have any input or recommendations?
Note the price of the AC Delco filter...

Wix 46108 is for the DOHC, aka Fram CA7094

He needs the SOHC, aka Fram CA7098

The Valvoline VO100 looks good, that would be my choice...

That must be a year thing..... RA shows Gen3 SOHC and DOHC being the same. I can't image GM/Saturn using different filters/boxes for the two engines.

I'm just using a Champion Labs filter. When I got the car I was trying to buy as little as I needed until I proved that it was a good investment, as the car had been sitting for awhile. I absolutely needed a filter since the one in the car looked like it had sat in a mud puddle (dirty and had been wet). I think it came from China, but I'm not certain of that. The oil filters were US made.

I believe any of those would be fine, but Hastings/Baldwin has been around for a while.
The ACdelco one may be GM original, hence the price. But still, it is nowhere near worth $58 ........

Thanks to all for the input. I ended up ordering the ultra-power brand, as it matches the Wix stock # for the SOHC 91-94 engines. I'll compare it with my last Wix air filter I just installed. Also ordered several of the Wix 51516 xp oil filters to last me to my 500,000 mile oil change. The local Walmart and Meijer Thrifty Acres stores did not even list the Fram filter in their book on the counter, nor did they stock it.

Lol, it's been decades since Meijer's has had the Thrifty Acres as part of their name.

I would not expect the Ultra-Power to be a Wix filter as many of the lower-tier brands use the same numbers as the premium brands.

On my SL2 I have the Injen CAI system, honestly probably more psychological than an actual big bump in power though I do also have the SPS cat back exhaust. Also probably something long out of production but it does sound interesting. I probably put these on about 18-19 years ago. On the other SLís we owed I ran K&N filters, again donít really think there was a big difference just easier to keep clean.
