It's not the size that matters, it how you use it!

Increased oil capacity and the surface areas of the adapters, fittings, and hoses will remove more heat than the stock filter, which will add life to the oil and engine. More filtering suface area is another benefit.AF-Medic said:A bigger filter wont do anything more except hold more oil. Bigger is not always better in this application IMO. Filtration is filtration. You guys going to put a bigger fuel filter in? Maybe someone else will chime in. I do agree they are small for the size compared to other v8's.
Yea but any filter will only filter down to a certain Micron. The oil has to go thorugh the filter anyway and will only be filtered down to that size. You wont filter out anymore debris with a bigger filter that has the same micron as a smaller one. I wont argue about the surface area moving heat. Does it dissapate it that much or make a huge difference I dunno.Brundy said:Increased oil capacity and the surface areas of the adapters, fittings, and hoses will remove more heat than the stock filter, which will add life to the oil and engine.

I believe I read on here that TITANs have no in-tank sock. An ADDITIONAL fuel filter will be easier than a bigger filter.
To test your filtration theory, breathe through a straw with your sock over the end, and then try it with a garden hose.
Thanks for the bump 54. I'll try to get the list out to you & Overide on Sunday.
FYI, anti-drainback valves exist in any filter that is applicable to our trucks. It just happens that Fram tends to have horrible filters and anti-drainback valves that don't do their job.artacus said:Not to mention what a pain in the a$$ it is to remove! Do your self a favor, go with a K&N gold ( has anti-drainback and built in nut to remove with a socket or wrench)
