Yes, most oversized options will be have to be larger lengthwise than the standard size, although there is still some small room for the gasket diameter from the standard size.

Sounds like high pressure fuel pump might be leaking, common on these engines. You might go to 10W30 next oil change, the 2.4 Eco's are hard on oil, shearing, oil dilution etc.

Plan on using Polaris next time... I'm going to switch soon due to their ability to find fuel via gas chromatography instead of flashpoint as @Danh stated. Dollars to donuts Polaris shows noticeable fuel dilution.
