    Here's a few filters that fit. Name:  IMG_7945[1].jpg
Views: 108
Size:  88.5 KB From left to right: el-cheapo 8-51356,Mitsubishi MZ690072,Wix 51356,Wix 51356XP. The Mitsubishi filter is taller than the others. It also uses a round pre-greased oring unlike the others. Name:  IMG_7949[1].jpg

Size:  88.2 KBPretty much any filter is going to be larger than the one they install at the factory. If bigger means better then between the 4 above I'd go with the Mitsubishi one.

    thanks for the replies everyone. I'm going to run this FRAM as i trust the construction of the ultra. I'll cut it open after i run it about 5k miles and go from there. I do like the WIX and the OEM filter as well though.

    Haven't read or heard yet of anyone using a lifetime oil filter here.

    K&N SS-1010 Oil Filter
    Pure PowerŪ Lifetime Oil Filter Part #PP8415
    Hubb Filter 3207

    They are too costly but they promise better oil flow w/c makes me think if they're worth trying?

    I use Baldwin B1402 filters on the Mirage. I been a heavy truck mechanic most of my life and I trust these filters. Wix is also good.

    Grew up in a diesel shop myself, Baldwin and Fleetguard are great products!

    Do you think the Wix 51356 is good enough to keep for 2 oil changes (15k miles total)?

    And if yes which other brands are good enough to handle 15k miles on a single oil filter?

    Actually, I was thinking about doing this very thing, and here's why:

    1. Of all the posts I have read on filters on websites like Bob Is The Oil Guy, there are a few folks that place emphasis on improved filtration in being able to capture smaller particles. Not many manufacturers advertise the filtration capacity of their products. By paying attention to this, it is my goal to catch more junk (as in smaller particle size) than what a Mitsubishi filter will and reward the companies who are open about what their product will do. So far, I haven't found any specification from Mitsubishi as to what size particles their filter will trap. I have found this info for Mobil and Wix filters.

    2. Most filters recommended for the 3A92 have more filter media than the factory filter due to being a larger (mostly longer) filter. This gives the ability to capture more junk (as in quantity.)

    3. Being a city car, I don't typically put on many miles on an oil change. In six month's time, Speck is well under the 7,500 miles recommended by Mitsubishi.


    I'm thinking a better filter (both in what size particles and in how much it can capture) used for one year's worth of driving will suffice and by being able to capture smaller particles, be even better than the manufacturer filter. I also look forward to submitting an oil sample for analysis and report the results here (kinda negates the cost savings lol.)

    There's more to this. I'll have to write more later.

    Just a thought
