What's wrong with the FU filter? If I were to do a 15K mile OCI the FU would be my filter of choice. (Ok Z06, flame thrower on.)

I always overfill by 1/2 quart. No issues. 4.5 quarts quoted capacity, in goes the entire jug of 5.1 quarts. Oversized filter of course but I'm still over the full mark some.
