Just changed my oil today on my Dodge 2500 5.7 Hemi. Used a Fram XG2 filter and put in Amsoil 0-20 SS oil. Gonna run it for more than a yr. and do a UOA on it. Anyway got looking at the filter area under the truck. I could put a much longer filter on there if one would fit. I mean a LOT longer one, like 12” longer. The ST ST2 filter I removed I used for an Auto RX rinse I cut open and it looked similar to a Fram ToughGuard filter FYI. So does anyone know if there is a larger/longer filter I could run? Not that I need to since the Fram XG2s I run for 2 OCI’s and are nearly spotless inside when cut open. Just curious.

WIX 51592 is nearly 2" longer (the longest one with the right gasket diameter) and actually filters a couple microns better than the 51372. NAPA number would be 1592 for a NAPA Gold.

Hmm. Was hoping for a large fleet filter that was built like a Fram Ultra. Probly wouldn’t have to change it for many yrs.
