Speaking of oil filters

I use a 2 quart oil filter that has an original application on Caterpillar diesel engines and big block Fords. That's almost 17% more oil when you add a 2 quart filter.

I also stick a computer hard drive magnet on the bottom of my filters. Overkill and unnecessary, I know.

The long filter also leaves plenty of room if you want to use (or make) a finned aluminum, wrap around oil cooler. Again, overkill and unnecessary I know that too.
Here are some pics.




Its good to have alternatives from "mainstream", overhyped, commercial options.

Do you add more oil when you use that big ol filter? I assume you would.

Total overkill unless you don't plan on changing it as often.

Cool Ford 370/429 truck engine. I assume it fits OK or you would not be using it. Another quart of oil might be overkill but heck a Jeep is overkill for a city street.

Yes, it takes an additional qt of oil. Doubles your filter area and adds 17% more oil to your engine. An old trick by street racers, and may still be, is to add a section onto the oil pan to increase crankcase capacity.

More oil runs cooler. Bigger filter, filters more oil and faster too. Think outside the Auto-bone box.

I like the idea, and I like overkill. Overkill is underrated. I know I've seen those wraparound finned oil coolers, but now I can't find one. What do you ask for to get that filter at an auto parts store? I guess I could get the parts number from your pic cross referenced, but they always screw that up...

BTW I have cut open a lot of filters and the magnet on the outside works like a champ... Got some good tech here.
