Looking at doing a double oil filter relocation to the main engine bay area to make it easier to do the filter change and more filtration. Does anybody know what size the thread is and the inside and outside diameter of the flange is?
Too lazy to go out and find one and I'm sure somebody has done this before. Also, don't want to have to go out and find a new filter just to measure the size.
id like to see your plans for this and where you are going to put it, the 5.2, 5.9, 3.9 oil filter is in a pretty good spot and is mounted rather easy to get to (clean oil changes) IMO, especially compared to the 4.7 (ok the 4.7 isnt hard to get to, just messy cause its mounted on an angle instead of being verticle)

Honestly I hate the spot they chose for the filter. I plan on puting it near the area where my air box is (doing spectre CAI) at same time and mounting it vertical. IMO it's always such a PITA getting the filter off if I'm just crawling under it no lift.

I did a few oil changes on my 4.7 and the first few times there was oil everywhere! LOL! especially the skid plates! There would be like a quart just sitting on top of the plates! Then I discovered a neat trick, okay someone posted this trick. You use an empty 2 liter soda bottle, cut the bottom off and angle cut the bottom some more so you can reach up to the filter, crack the filter and let the old oil drain out into the bottle and have the oil catcher located under the mouth of the bottle. Took me a few tries until I found the right angle but now no more oil slicked skid plates! On yeah, use Mobil 1 Fully synthetic 10w30 for your oil.
