Question Changeing the oil filter

I was changing my oil on my '05 and found that you canít pre-fill the filter like I could on my '99 7.3 or most other cars/trucks that use an upright screw on style... I have always filled my filters, and got almost instant pressureÖ With this one it took about 7-10 seconds for pressure and I was wondering if this would starve the engine for oil? You would think ford would have thought of this, so is that standard procedure for the 6.0 engines.... Drop the thing in and crank-it? Sounds like a possible chance for cavitations and pre-mature bearing wear. Am I doing it rite?...

I would say that is all too common.... but not the preferred practice....I mite be considered overly cautious by pre-filling the filters but I have never had an engine bearing failure due to lack of oil. I have accumulators on both of my novas for pre-oiling before start-up and incase of pump cavitations during hi-RPM or hard cornering, it is good cheap insurance, like filling the filters, IMO...
