Re: oil filters (biger vs smaller)

Speak to Rollin if you're interested in the GM ones, he uses them from his work.

In general, oil filters are oil filters in my experience.

Re: oil filters (biger vs smaller)

The smaller one might be used for the engines equiped with engine oil coolers such as the T series.Just a thought.

Re: oil filters (biger vs smaller)

i'd say it might not be for a falcon aplication at all,

different cars use different filter sizes, falcon use the Z9 model (or its equivelant - consult the parts manual at the parts store)

Re: oil filters (biger vs smaller)

We used to use a very small filter on our race Clevo, from memory it was from a 3 series BMW, which happen to be the same flange size as a Z9.

Re: oil filters (biger vs smaller)

apparently with the smaller ones = better oil pressure makes sense as the z0 holds like 500ml a little one would hold much less?

Re: oil filters (biger vs smaller)

The smaller ones are ok, but need to be changed more often. Drag cars use them to minimise weight and because the engines are pulled down frequently anyway. I'd only fit a smaller one if the Z9 is to hard to fit or you have a ps pump or something in the way

Re: oil filters (biger vs smaller)

no i would use the biggest one i could get - more internal filtration material = longer life and or better filtering.

would really love to know where i can get a engine oil cooler from though - would a TS50 oil cooler fit? are they even for the same sort of flange?

LTDHO - man im so envious of that power figure!!!!
