I can understand both arguments here. I'd darn sure opt for a larger filter if the cost was comparable though! Capacity, cooling,,, nothing to loose, something to gain,,,
FWIW, the OEM filter is 'decent' sized. The OEM filter that went on my 5.3 Silverado was smaller than the one on the wifes 2.5 Honda Accord! The 5.3 filter was about the size of a coffee cup,,,
Now, if I could get a true '1 qt' filter instead of the OEM '1/2 QT' for comparable $$$, why not?
On a sidenote, my EVIC has been calling for oil changes about every 3,500 miles/100 hours. Well, that chit ain't gonna cut it now that I've switched over to MO 1. The new 'mark' is 5,000 miles whether EVIC likes it or not.
But, back to the OT, if there is a larger filter, I'd like to know.
