    I know this can be done and everything I have read says that it will increase your oil pressure slightly due to the smaller size of the K filters.

    does anyone have any direct experience with this? good or bad?

    just trying to make a decision before I do my next oil change
    thanks

    i cant see it really raising the oil pressure unless it is more restrictive. size shouldnt matter as long as the oil is not restricted. even if it does work, why would you want to do that?

    We're all about swapping this into that around here, but an oil filter?? keep the one that was designed for your engine. Want a better one? Buy a mobile 1.

    all over the 'net' you see people saying that the smaller sized filters will increase the oil pressure. specifically if you search for the hamp filters just about everyone that sells them will mention this point

    just wondering what experience people on here have with this

    thanks
