BIG oil filters?

When I had my F150 (well still tryin to sell) there were alot of guys modding the oil filter set up to use the larger FL1A or dual filters etc.

I know our PSDs have large filters to begin with, but today at work i saw this HUGE @$$ filter, WIX 51792XE with a synthetic media!

I compared the specs to the 51734 and the threads are the same, but the O-ring is a lil bigger and I dont know if the filter is too big around to fit, but are there any other filters out there that will fit but are bigger than stock?

Also the 51792XE has a LOT better micron rating with the same flow rate!

anyhow, i might crawl under my truck and see if it would fit, i just dunno about the o-ring.

You have to be careful with the longer filter hitting the oil pan due to the filter housing being on an angle.

What angle? Mine hangs almost perfectly straight down. I'd be more concerned about the clearance between the filter SIDE and the pan.

Between the two your looking at a 1/4 inch difference in gasket size. I don't think it would work. Every listing in the applications guide is for CAT motors.

yea. i was wondering if i could fit an oring inside the large one, or if it would impede oil flow.

or maybe someone has found a large one like this with same threads AND o-ring?

Correction: I must be smoking crack. My oil filter DOES hang at an angle, the base tilted slightly toward the oil pan. I know this because, when removing the last one, oil spilled all down the sides as I unthreaded it. I let that subside, then attempted to remove it the rest of the way. It slipped, and coated my jacket and the driveway in a half quart of oil. Whee.

BUT, judging by the way it fits, while you might be able to fit a LONGER filter in there, you'd be hard pressed to fit a WIDER one in there, as the oil pan is right there. Besides, this thing holds a QUART of oil- even the filters on the Cummins 6BT aren't as big as ours!

It is deffinately at an angle, I can't stand the black died skin after an oil change so I take a hammer and puch under the truck first to poke a hole in the oil filter to get it drained before removing it from the engine, much cleaner that way.

they do, gotta let it set and soak into the media, but they do, or dang close.

and i tried the hole punch on the bottom of filter last change on a 7.3L and it worked GREAT
