Bigger Oil filter whats the point?

Just wondering i'm getting ready to change the oil. I hear all this talk about bigger oil filter. I know you get more oil. But don't you run lower oil pressure that way too? Whats the real reason you all put a 5.0 filters on a XJ 4.0L. BYW whats the part numbers too just in case i hear enough good reason for it. . in Delco or Purlator please? Also how can i post my pictures, i tried but no luck.

You won't get a pressure loss from running a larger filter (unless of course you only put in the amount of oil that the book states). Larger oil filter will also give you more filtration due to more filtering media in the oil filter (that is a lot of filtering).

just the advantage of having more oil...on angles its a little more peace of mind and it also spreads the amount of particles that may be in your oil over a larger volume...and like said above...more filter area. and why not? as far as i know of there are no disadvantages...the filter was cheaper for me and more oil is better, more filter area is better...and there will be no loss of oil pressure if you put the propper amount of oil back in it...you just have to add the extra amount of oil that the bigger filter holds compared to the stock one. so until i hear something bad about it im gonna keep on runnin my oversized filter.

more oil, more filtration area. What's not to like? I run our Jeeps on synth oil at 5k mile intervals, so the extra bit of oil and larger filter are nice to have.

I know that the Mobil pn is M1-301. I think the K&N Gold pn is like HP3001 or something to that effect. Same filter as for a Ford F150 truck V8. Maybe it's the same as the Mustand V8 filter too...

Hopefully you can cross reference the filter from the Mobil 301. I got the Mobil 301 at Checker, a few more bucks, hopefully a quality filter. And for you, it is a direct screw on, no adaptor needed. If you starter does not a have plastic or rubber flap protecting the electrical connections, be sure you don't bridge the connections by accident while installing the larger filter. Chuck

Not that it would increase things that much, but a larger filter would also mean the greater the chances of the oil running cooler. Oil filters have such a thin wall on them that they really do dissapate temp well.

WIX #51515 is the filter I use on my '88 Grand Marquis with the 5.0 (I use WIX filters on all of my vehicles)...

So let me get this right? You guys are excited about an extra 1/2 quart of oil. So you all are now putting 6.5 quarts in your 4.0L?

The extra filtration, it's a benefit, but not worth getting giddy about.

I'd have to agree.
