Looking For Alternative Oil Filter To PF 48E

Recommended Posts

I would like to find other oil filters for my 2012 5.3 L .

Preferably longer.

Wix 57045? About 1 - 1/2 " longer.

Or something comparable.

Has any body used a longer filter.

I use a WIX 10255 XP or NAPA equivalent. The XP is a bit longer than the standard WL 10255 version of the PF 63. Has the 22 psi relief as well. Roughly .375 longer give or take. 

 

You looking for more surface area or more capacity?

More filter media.

Length is not an issue, I don't off road.

A filter that hangs down past the oil pan would be OK.

Of course the easy answer is a remote twin filter setup with a sandwich plate. However I believe you are a evangelizer of K.I.S.S.

 

That said, let me dig around in my books and see what I can find.

Thanks Grumpy.

I like the Wix 57045 and think it will work.

Okay I looked anyway.

 

57045 is the longest in this thread pitch and diameter. 12-15 psi relief 4.828" long

 

100255 4.776" long 22 psi relief. This one is WIX replacement for the AC Delco PF63 spec wise. This is the one I use. 

 

AC Delco PF48 or WIX 57060 3.48" long 12 psi relief. Your OEM

 

A PF64 sized filter with a 22 psi relief is WL10290  Just a thought for those who want the relief upgrade in a PF48 size. (OEM on Corvette 376 CID) Allows use of a sandwich plate for a cooler on the pickups if the plate in not more than 1" thick. 

 

All are 21 micron nominal with identical beta ratios. All are available in XP (WIX) or Platinum (NAPA) synthetic media. 

 

GM upped the relief pressure in response to AFM issues. 

 

If you want more than that you need a remote system.

Thanks Grumpy.

I have a 2012 Sierra.

The higher psi shouldn't be an issue on my truck would it?

I usually run the K&N HP2011 with a 1" nut welded to the bottom or the Mobil M1-212.  All the filters mentioned will work just fine.

 

I've read and it seems true in my experience, that the oil pressure is slightly lower when using the Mobil One filter (which is on now) versus the K&N as the media is slightly more effective/restrictive.  It's been written that both are made by Champion Labs.

Does is have cylinder deactivation? Higher pressure means it spends less time in by-pass. GM believes this means cleaner oil and less AFM issues. That is my understanding anyway. You decide if that seems right to you. Let me know your thoughts on it. Personally I run the higher bypass pressure filters as I said earlier.
