WHy do you say "daring or out of warranty" in reference to running an oversized filter? I was thinking of running the oversized amsoil filter as I have not heard of any negative side effects.
I am posting this more so for those that may read it than just the poster I am responding to.
What Grillmaster said. You need to weigh the risk and be certain that the filter will work. Oversized filters are great for increased filtration area and increasing oil capacity which in turn increases the potential oil change interval. If you decide to do this (an many of us may have or may have not
currently or not currently run oversized filters) realize that if you have a failure related to the oil filter that neither the oil filter maker or the automaker will warrant it. Amsoil may.. but you need to contact that maker to be certain.
If you are in warranty you need to keep your end of the agreement and be willing to take responsibility for changes you make from the factory specs that could effect longevity or warranted parts. (example; lifts and CV boots, non-affiliated to the factory performance mods etc.)
Persoanly I have no problem with running a properly selected oversized filter, a lift or even some better fuel injectors if you have a supercharger. But you should know the risks before you read something on the internet and jump into it without thought for potential consequence.
