What about us duratec owners? no filter loveOriginally posted by 95SE@Jul 21 2004, 12:17 AM
stock tauri use a FL-400s, if you can physically fit it, an FL-1A will bolt right up and work.
That is a stock 5.0L mustang filter, and has nearly twice the filter capacity.
So it's a good thing? :headscratch:Originally posted by SHOZ123@Jul 21 2004, 03:10 PM
A larger filter will increase the total system capacity, offer more external surface area for heat radiation, lower the internal pressure differential due to the increase surface area of the filter media and trap a greater total load of particles.
Is the FL-820s a metric thread?
I know the "big" engine Ford Courier uses the FL-300. I was looking for a bigger filter for my Festiva. It takes the filter from the "small" Courier motor.Originally posted by silvapain@Jul 21 2004, 10:25 PM
off the topic, but does anyone know what engines use the FL-300 filter? I bought one by accident from autozone, and they won't take it back. So if anyone wants an oil filter for free + shipping, let me know.
I always try to find a bigger filter. On my mower, both Taurii, and I now have found a bigger one for the Festiva too. I use to have 4 cyl Mustangs that I also put the bigger filters on.Originally posted by Nidan@Jul 21 2004, 07:34 PM
To be honest, i've never heard of anyone going thru the trbl of finding a bigger oil filter. If you maintain the engine well, change the oil regularly, and maybe run synthetic oil, you shouldn't have any problems with oil pressure and flow, since the engine should be nice and clean inside. If you're really concerned, install an external oil cooler to help heat transfer instead of a bigger filter.
I thought the S stood for silicone valve?Originally posted by firstgen87l@Jul 22 2004, 05:34 PM
also to add in, the FL-820S, is a synthetic media filter, meaning that it flows and filters better than a 1A
That's actually what the "S" stands for is synthetic media instead of cotton or waht ever they make it out of....
