I will be running Valvoline Premium Blue Restore for one oil change interval in the vehicles listed in my signature.

What is the most efficient oil filter available for my applications? Price is not a concern. The service interval will not exceed 10K miles.

Thanks.

I'm not sure about running a high efficiency filter during a cleanup. Will clog fast possibly impacting flow. Maybe the oil change right after would be a better idea.

Leaky, if that was the case, why would Cummins have a specially made combo bypass filter as their only recommended filter when using this oil on the ISX engine it's intended for? Once you break all that soot/varnish/agglomerates free, you don't want them recirculating through the oil passages where they can wreak more havoc than their original locations...

No idea about that. I was commenting on the Honda and the Prius in Critics sig. I think an avg filter will perform just fine. Will catch anything large enough to cause a problem, become more efficient as it loads up. Without impacting the flow, which IMO is more important than efficiency.

Edit: A quick google seems to confirm my opinion. See the third bullet point. While they boast about the efficiency of the recommended oil filter, they also recommend this filter to prevent premature oil filter plugging. So they are concerned about it. Transfer this to an auto, maybe a regular filter is a better choice.

Depending on how long you plan to run the OCI, I would go with Fram Ultra and change it half way.

Sounds like a Fram Ultra.

Yep. Any cummins dealer should have it in stock.

Personally I would change oil filters every 2-3k during that 10k OCI. If a lot of things get cleaned you do not want a super fine filter, you want surface area, and frequent change to make available that surface area.

Someone said oversize Fram Ultra.

It's really close to the 1960's Hurst Gold, almost metalflake, and has some stuff on the dome end resembling aircraft carrier flight deck surfacing, but in black. Simple! LOL
