You also should be able to use a LS1 truck oil filter ... its a tad bigger
So... why can't you put in more oil???????????????CMNTMXR57 said:Be wary of using the larger truck filters. They tend to hang down about an inch past the bottom of the oil pan and could become snagged on something.
I know everyone thinks that a bigger filter means better filtration, but the minimal gain in whatever filtration you may have is highly offset by the fact that little bit of extra oil is in the filter and NOT in the engine where it should be protecting bearing surfaces, acting as a cooling mechanism, and cleaning agent.
CMNTMXR57 said:I do (I run 7.5 quarts). But I still, no matter how much oil I put in, would rather have it in the engine doing it's job, not in a bigger filter getting .0015789% more filtration.
tminer said:I don't see how more volume in the filter will decrease the volume in the engine as long as the oil level is at full on the dipstick. Having two large remote filters doesn't make the engine run a quart low.
The added volume will cause the oil to cycle thru the system (oil cooler) less often, but the heat is also spread to a higher volume of oil so it should be a wash as far as temperature.
CMNTMXR57 said:The LS1 has an oil return problem at high rpm. The oil doesn't drain back to the pan fast enough therefore leaving the main bearings DRY!
I thought it was a high RPM extended use issue. Not everyday driving or occasional drag race. Learn something every day.
