Subtitute fuel filter

Does anyone have a part number for a fuel filter that can be purchased at NAPA, etc. It's for a K100.It has to be a filter that's rated for fuel injection. Any help is appreciated. Thanks........

While its a bit trickier putting in the larger filter I would imagine that it would take more dirt before clogging...

The Fram 6063 is crap.

I use the Napa 3032 fuel filters and change them every 10,000 miles on the tens.
