    Wat is the largest (like 2 quarts?) oil filter that is avaiable commonly for the SBC? Not running headers, so no clearance issues with length, just wondering if anyone knows a NAPA or even Fram # for the big filter. I know there is one out there, and I seem to remember that it was used also on the mid 80's Coprice cars. (Option 9C1) but not positive. No way I'm actually going to USE Fram, but I can cross reference their part #'s easily.

    I am impressed. The comparison of filters was great. I sell these things at work everyday and have always been a big fan of fram, but the test results may sway my decision. Thanks for the great comparison.

    I've seen quite a few write ups on fram and they're never good.
    Main reason; the cardboard seperator between inlet oultet fails.
    K&N thank you!

    If the Fram Doublegard has Teflon in it, you are doing just as much harm as good. Dupont had to be SUED to let companies use Teflon in oil additives, because Dupont testing found that Teflon is NOT suitable for use in engines.

    The Baldwin B7 is a 2 quart filter that works on the 6.2 diesel. I'm pretty sure the filters that fit the diesels fit the SBC. If you can't find one try look at a semi truck service center or any place that deals with fleet vehicles, they'll probly have them.

    Baldwin also has a hydraulic filter that fits a SBC that's 2 qt. I don't remember the number off hand though.

    I'm not creative enough to comeup with a new signature [​IMG]
